HOW TO ADD A NEW WIDGET AREA TO ANY WORDPRESS THEME



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.
