    Wordpress Sidebar Change by Category

    Hi,

    Question, Can you get the sidebar to change by Categories?

    Let say I have the category Hollywood and I want all post under that category to show side bar A

    Now I have a category Midnight and I want all post under that category to show side bar B

    Now I have a category Westerns and I want all post under that category to show side bar C

    And so on, and so on, and so on.

    Meaning I want all category posts to have their own individual sidebar.

    What is the best way to do this with a plugin or edit the theme?

    Now I know how some of hate the fact that I have so many plugins on my site so I did not try to hunt for one yet.

    But I am looking for the cheapest way to solve this problem. So will this be a nightmare to have done or is it easy for a theme person to add to my theme?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sami

    P.S I have 12 different Categories what I am wanting to do is, target market my ads to help the site earn more then having the same advertisement running on all post pages.

    It's seems it's possible, but you will have to create new file for each of the 12 categories for which you want a different sidebar. You can read more about it over here:
    WordPress › Support different sidebar per category

    There are also some plugins that are suggested, but I don't know if they're what you're after.

    I looked around for a solution. It can be done with custom code, but I have not found a way to do it with the custom menu system or with a plugin.

    Hi,

    Looks like I will need to hire someone to make it for me then.

    Thanks
