"I have used "Custom Sidebars" in some sites when the side has distinct topical areas, so, for example. the sidebars for slavery topics would be different from civil war topics. I did this with Custom Sidebars plug-in, but I understand that Wordpress is evolving a new way to do this. Do you have any advice about how to do this without the plug-in? I cannot find any advice."

Hi Ned - Yes, there are actually two plugins on the Commons - Custom Sidebars and WordPress Custom Sidebars. As I understand, they will continue to work with older themes, but newer themes may eventually do away with this functionality. I would think (like Boone) that WP will develop an alternate means of doing this.
