Since WordPress 5.8 and Jetpack 10.0 launched the Block Widgets functionality, you must install and activate the Classic Widgets plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-widgets/ so you'll continue to use the standard interface and options as described below.
Step 1: How to add widgets to the sidebars
WordPress Widgets add content to your Sidebars and Footer/Body Top Widget Areas. Widgets require no coding experience or expertise. They can be added, removed, and rearranged in the WordPress Widgets panel found in WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets.
Body Sidebars / Widget Areas / Widgets
- Go to Appearance > Widgets.
- Choose a Widget and drag it to the right sidebar where you wish it to appear.
- Once you drop the widget to a widget area, WordPress automatically saves and updates the configuration. To arrange the Widgets within the widget area, click on the title and drag it into the place you want. To customize the Widget features, click on the icon on the right to expand the Widget's panel. To save the Widget's customisation, click "Save". To remove the Widget, click "Delete".
- Control the Widgets' visibility following the instruction below.
See the following step below.
Step 2: Widget Visibility Module
The plugin developer kindly provides this tutorial. You can access the full plugin's documentation on this URL: https://jetpack.me/support/widget-visibility/.
Control which pages your widgets appear on with Widget Visibility.
To control visibility, expand the widget, click the Visibility button next to the Save button, and then choose a set of visibility options.
For example, if you wanted the Archives widget to only appear on category archives and error pages, choose "Show" from the first dropdown and then add two rules: "Page is 404 Error Page" and "Category is All Category Pages."
You can also hide widgets based on the current page. For example, if you don't want the Archives widget to appear on search results pages, choose "Hide" and "Page is Search results."
The Widget Visibility module enables you to configure widgets to appear only on certain pages (or be hidden on certain pages) by using the Visibility panel.
The Visibility button is next to the Save button.
Visibility is controlled by five aspects: page type, category, tag, date, and author. For example, if you wanted the Archives widget to only appear on category archives and error pages, choose “Show” from the first dropdown and then add two rules: “Page is 404 Error Page” and “Category is All Category Pages.”
You can also hide widgets based on the current page. For example, if you don’t want the Archives widget to appear on search results pages, choose “Hide” and “Page is Search Results.”
Each visibility rule is handled separately. For example, there isn’t a way to only display a widget on posts categorised as “Summer” and tagged with “Picnic.”
