  2. Click the Design option in the navigation menu, then click the Widgets link.
  3. Click the Create widget template link.
  4. The Create Widget menu page will load. Enter a name for the template, and in the field enter the text you want to add to the sidebar. Then click the Save button.
  5. Click the Widgets link on the left again. Then under Widget Sets, click the layout that you want to add your new sidebar widget to. These these may differ depending on your template. In my tests I am selecting 3-column layout - Secondary Sidebar.
