There have been many occasions in recent months where I have been creating/editing WordPress themes only to find that there are just not enough widget areas. In some cases themes don’t include any widget support. I find myself constantly having to modify existing themes to add in custom widget areas.

All you need to do is follow the instructions below and copy/modify the code snippets and you will be well on your way to creating custom widget areas anywhere on your website.
