If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I added a new widget area to on of our categories through the flashlight options. And added some widgets to it.
But it doesn’t show up?
Also, is it possible to have a blog without the right sidebar? When i don’t add any own widgets to the blog page it displays a couple of default ones.
1) Please try to use plugins like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/ which can filter widgets based on conditional logic. Add the widgets to the “Displayed Everywhere” widget area and use following conditional tag:
to display the widgets on the certain category archive pages only. Instead of 16,17,19 insert your custom category ids.
2) Yes – go to Flashlight > Sidebar and select “No right sidebar”.
