    Custom sidebar for Create Listing page without plugins

    I've always wanted to have a sidebar on my create-listing page where I could add few text widgets with instructions for business owners on filling out the submission form.
    I know some of you want to add your own sidebar on that page too, and you can do it with the help of plugins, but here's a little tutorial on how to achieve that with only minor modifications to the code (kudos to overserv for mentioning this method, but I figured I would do a step-by-step tutorial also).

    1. You need to register a new sidebar.
    Open your core.php file and find line 194, where all sidebars are listed. Add this line after the last registered sidebar

    PHP Code:
    va_register_sidebar'create-listing'__'Create Listing Sidebar'APP_TD ), __'The sidebar for Create Listing Form'APP_TD ) ); 
    That will create a new sidebar called "Create Listing Sidebar" that you can now see in your backend admin under Appearance > Widgets

    2. Add a sidebar to Create Listing page
    Open the form-listing.php and add this at the very end (after </div><!-- #content -->)

    PHP Code:
    <div id="sidebar">
    <?php dynamic_sidebar'create-listing' ); ?>
    </div>
    Now you should have your own sidebar for that page. I added a few text widgets explaining each section of the submission form to help with the process.
