    I am adding the following code to functions.php

    function wpblog_widget()
    {
        register_sidebar(array(
            'name' => __('Primary Sidebar', 'wpb'),
            'id' => 'primary_sidebar', // unique-sidebar-id
            'description' => '',
            'class' => '',
            'before_widget' => '<li id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
            'after_widget' => '</li>',
            'before_title' => '<h2 class="widgettitle">',
            'after_title' => '</h2>',
        ));
    
    }
    
    add_action('widgets_init', 'wpblog_widget');
    

    This is to register a widget and to make the widget area visible I am dding this code in sidebar.php

    <?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'Primary Sidebar' ) ) : ?>
    
        <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'Primary Sidebar' ); ?>
    
    <?php endif; ?>
    

    I don’t know why it is not working? I have seen the code here https://www.wpblog.com/how-to-add-custom-widget-area-to-wordpress-themes/

    Is your widget position showing in the backend? And if so, what have you tried to include in that widget position?

    I think you should be extending the WP_Widget class.
    This tutorial looks pretty good:

    I am trying to say yo just add some step , i hope you can add custom widgets
    Create your widget’s class by extending the standard WP_Widget class and some of its functions.
    Register your widget so that it’s made available in the Widgets screen.
    Make sure that your theme has at least one widget area in which to add the widgets.
