Second Sidebar

Hi I am using the Unite theme with this URL

Is it possible to add a second widgetized sidebar to the left side of the theme while keeping the right one untouched?

It is definitely doable but it will require a lot of work. The basic idea is to

  1. To register a new widget area
  2. Create a new sidebar-left.php file
  3. Call for new widgets in newly created sidebar file.
  4. Modify all template files to call for this newly created sidebar
  5. Tweak Bootstrap layout from col-md-8 and col-md-4 to something like col-md-3, col-md-6, col-md-3

Like I said it is not easy but it is doable.

Could you provide some more info on how to do this, it’s sorta over my head.

Having 2 sidebars, especially on the blog page would be so helpful.
