How to publish widgets to select pages

This video in this series provides an overview of how to assign widgets to select widget positions throughout your website. By default WordPress will publish your widget to “every” page that has the widget position you are using. The problem with this is that you do not get the flexibility of showing a widget (or widgets) on specific pages only. We will need a plugin called Dynamic Widgets because WordPress does not offer this capability. 

UPDATE: You may want to first check out a plugin called Display Widgets first as some users have said it’s easier to use.

To see what available widget positions you have available for this theme, you can check out the live demo website here:
