Multiple Sidebars

Sidebars are a recursive feature. Meaning that the page layout will look up and down the site structure to find a sidebar section. If you want a certain section to have a different sidebar than the other sections in your site, simply create a sidebar section directly underneath it. The page layout looks for the sidebar that is directly under a section. Then it looks up and down the structure to find one.
