Change sidebars for different categories / archives

Because categories (blog categories, product/shop categories etc.) are very different than a page, we haven’t added any feature to change them, however we  recommend a great plugin which can solve this.

The plugin is called Widget Logic and can be found here https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/ . Basically Widget Logic lets you control on which pages widgets appear using WP’s conditional tags. It also adds a ‘widget_content’ filter.

For example if you want a certain widget to only appear on a certain category, you will first need to find the category’s ID, and you can find it in its URL, for example http://hogash.d.pr/1cMTN . Then, use that id with a WordPress basic condition eg: is_category(‘546’) eg: http://hogash.d.pr/11heQ .

You can read so much more here on Widget Logic’s FAQ section https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/faq/ or even check the WP Conditionals https://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags .
