Step 1 – Activate in the Page Editor
Once installed, Per Page Sidebars adds a new panel to the page editor. This panel lets you turn Per Page Sidebars on and off for each page.
To activate the Per Page Sidebars on your page, click the Activate check-box, and then choose which sidebar you want to replace with a custom one. Currently, you can only replace one sidebar- so if you want to customize the footer, you won’t be able to also customize the right-hand column on this particular page.
Save your page as a Draft or Publish it.
Step 2 – Navigate to the Widget Editor
Now that you’ve activated Per Page Sidebars on your page, you need to go to the Appearance>Widgets section to actually create the custom sidebar.
Step 3- Add widgets
If you’ve never used it before, the widget editor in WordPress keeps all of the available widgets in a panel on the left side of the screen, and the sidebars on the right side of the screen. Before adding a custom sidebar, you may have just had a Sidebar and Footer section.
Now you’ll see a new panel on the right that starts with PPS (for per page sidebars) and followed with the name of your page. In my example, I called my page My New Page 123456, so here’s what I see in the widget editor:
