There are two ways of installing the plugin:
From the WordPress plugins page
custom-sidebarsfolder to your
From inside your WordPress installation, in the plugin section.
Once you have the plugin activated you will find all new features inside your “Widgets” screen! There you will be able to create and manage your own sidebars.
This plugin requires your theme to have widget areas enabled, if you don’t have widget areas enabled you probably need to use a different theme that does!
You have a sidebar box when editing a entry. Also you can define default sidebars for different posts and archives.
You can create all the sidebars you want, but you need some sidebars of your theme to be replaced by the ones that you have created. You have to select which sidebars from your theme are suitable to be replaced in the Custom Sidebars settings page and you will have them available to switch.
You are probably using a theme that doesn’t load dynamic sidebars properly or doesn’t use the wp_head() function in its header. The plugin replaces the sidebars inside that function, and many other plugins hook there, so it is more than recommended to use it.
Any user that can switch themes, can create sidebars. Switch_themes is the capability needed to manage widgets, so if you can’t edit widgets you can’t create custom sidebars. There are some plugins to give capabilities to the roles, so you can make your author be able to create the sidebars. Try User role editor
Custom Sidebars has the same license as WordPress, so you can use it wherever you want for free. Yay!
