Hello gang,

I’m currently in the process of putting my CSS/XHTML theme into WordPress. So far so good except when it comes to the sidebars.

When I designed my theme I made it so that each page would have a different "sidebar". Now that have in WordPress I can’t figure out how to achieve this.

So what I don’t want is the homepage/blog sidebar to appear on the about, portfolio etc., pages of my website. Can someone guide me in the right direction?

Thank you,
Jason Loucks

I think your going to use wordpress as a cms, in that the posts are for your blog, but your about may be a static page.

if so, you might want to look at making your own template page, like chris done on one of his tuts here … -as-a-cms/

or in the page.php in your theme folder, just don’t add in the link to your sidebar.
