This video tutorial shows you how to add a new widget area to
a wordpress theme. This is not adding the widgets in admin
area but adding an entirely new widget are on any particular
place on a page or a post template.
There are mainly two things in adding a new widget area.
1) First you have to register your new widget which you can
do it through functions.php. This is very simple and you just
need to copy the existing code and paste it and change the
name of the widget.
2) You need to add some php code to the template where you
want to add the new widget. In this tutorial I have shown it
adding the new widget to the home page which is index.php
template. You can follow the same procedure to add the new
widget to any other pages or any post content type.
