This 7-minute video walks you through how to add a text widget containing HTML code to your WordPress site, how to move widgets from one widgetized area to another, and through a quick overview of the options provided with the Dynamic Widgets plugin.
Dynamic Widgets lets you decide which pages, posts, categories, etc. you want to show your widget on–including date ranges, in case it’s a widget showing a special offer. You can customize the look of your sidebar, footer, and other widgetized areas without having to create special template files the way you did in the old days.

BRILLIANT Salie! Even I get it from your excellent demo here. Ah that sidebar has always baffled me. I feel so (dangerously) enlightened now. thanks! Allison
