Adding links, html, videos, ads, etc to your wordpress sidebar can be confusing when you are new to wordpress but this tutorial will take you through step by step so it won’t be confusing any longer.
Your sidebar editing area is located on your sites dashboard under ‘Appearance’ – ‘Widgets‘ .
Click on ‘Widgets’.
This is your sidebar area:
Find the widget you want to add to your sidebar. For adding html, codes, videos, text, etc. drag and drop the ‘Text’ box option from the center of the widgets area to your sidebar area. (Primary sidebar is the main sidebar that you will use. All themes are different so your sidebar-widget area on your dash may look different than mine.)
Add in your desired ‘Title Name’ and text (or code, etc.) and make sure to click ‘Save’.
Refresh your site and look for your newly added sidebar widget.
