    I am using the Exhibit child theme. I have created a new page template named: page_alt-sidebar-1.php and uploaded it to the file directory. It shows up as an option to use for new and existing pages. That’s awesome.

    HOWEVER, I can’t find anywhere within the Theme Customize area to edit the new Page Template. I just want to change what the sidebar widgits are doing on these new pages.

    I have tried uploading a new header and sidebar files: header-alt-sidebar-1.php, sidebar_alt-sidebar-1.php to no avail.

    Any help is much appreciated! I just want to get those sidebars changed.

    Hello Isabel,

    If you want to display a different sidebar widgets, you can register a new one and call it on your custom page template.
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_sidebar
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_sidebar

    Or you can use a plugin to display different widgets on different pages: https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-widgets/
