    It would be great if we could choose from more sidebars.

    At the moment, it seems like if we wanted different sidebar content/widgets on different sections of the site (home, categories, pages, posts) we would have to choose to display right OR left sidebars on the different sections.

    Example, I would like a right sidebar on the home page, but also a DIFFERENT right sidebar for posts. The two right sidebars would have different content/widgets but be located in the exact same positions.

    Does that make sense? πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the suggestion Lyle!

    The main downside to using this plugin for sidebars seems to be getting it to fit nicely within the GeneratePress layout. Think I might need to add quite a bit of custom CSS.

    Actually, it seems like this can work without adding lots of custom CSS πŸ™‚

    Yes, I just tried it! πŸ™‚ Inherits the current styling for the sidebars from GP. Plus you can easily add custom wrapper code.

    Had a look at that one too, Tom, but it hasn’t been updated in 11 months and the compatibility is up to only WP 4.3.5. That’s why I tried the other one, updated 3 days ago and good up to WP 4.6 πŸ™‚
