    WooCommerce Please Help

    I have built a wordpress site that uses a theme and woocommerce. Currently, I have to use the same sidebar for all of the shop pages. I need to be able to use different sidebars on different shop pages.

    Can someone please tell me how to do this?

    Thanks in advance for any help!!!

    Post a link to your site - If i can check your code I can see what theme you are using and determine if it will allow multiple sidebars.

    The site is:
    wguns.wpengine.com

    The theme only allows one sidebar, but I was wondering if the php files could be editted so that according to the product category a diiferent sidebar is used?

    Thanks for your help!!!

    If the theme allows you to create additional sidebars, you can generally add them to your pages in the widgets section.
    If the theme does not have that functionality, I think you would have to do something like create as many sidebar files as you need, each with a specific name. This requires either messing with the core code (NOT recommended) or creating a child theme to hold all your new sidebar files and probably a functions file that would figure out which category is being used in order to load the correct sidebar.

    Or you could possibly look into using Custom post types for this, although i'm not sure how that would work with woocommerce.

    I see you are using wpengine as your host - do they have certain themes that you must choose from or could you use another theme that would have the multiple sidebar functionality built in?

    I have never used WP for e-commerce, so these are only my best guesses.
