    Say I want to make a Who's Online sidebar to show throughout the whole forum, including in threads. With this resource would I be able to do it by creating the who's online sidebar as an add-on and calling it into the thread_list and thread_view template by adding the template code? For instance: <xen:include template="custom_sidebar_online_users" /> since regular sidebar_online_users template doesn't work in pages other than the forum_list template.

    In case someone needs it, this it how you add a sidebar in every page, without CSS or template edits. Nothing fancy, just some really basic stuff. Credit goes to Mike and Kier for making every developer's life so easy. :)

    What is the name of this addon once installed? is it Tutorial New Sidebar ?

    I see an addon installed that I did not install, I searched xen and this is the result.

    Addon could have been installed by someone I hired before. I'm checking all of my addons if compatible with 1.2

    Nice tutorial, However how can I send a variable and display on that widget?

    For example:

    $variable = 'testing'
    how can I send this and display it to that sidebar?
