    Wordpress Customization

    Hi All.

    I am learning how to customize wordpress.

    I was wondering if when I create a custom template for a page and some other categories in the sidebar eg other than the search bar, catagoiries, posts , I add to it about us or a text advert. Will all of the new sections created in the sidebar automatically be editable or will a client need to know html php to edit the new sections?

    I greatly appreciate any info?

    Thanks for your time reading this post

    It depends on what you add. If you are just adding some text. Then anyone that can read/write (and knows where to edit it) can edit it. If you're adding in code, than some level of knowledge will be required.

    You can use the text widget to add pretty much anything to the sidebar.

    Hope this was what you we're asking, if not post again.

    Thanks very much, It is what I was asking. I presume I would edit it in php and html in changing the sidebar template used to the template I have altered.

    My client would then only be able to edit the text using the text editor not the html editor provided for the sidebar panel

    Is that what would happen?

    Thanks very much BPartch

    Do you mean edit the about me via the widget interface, or something else? You can add a page within the admin section that has options - like add an about me blurb.
