Either call the guest sidebar in your theme using :

which will be replaced based on the user role.


Or use an existing sidebar you want replaced by adding this in your themes functions.php



function replace_sidebar_(){

    global $sidebars_per_role;
    $sidebars_per_role->sidebar_to_replace = 'ID-OF-YOUR-Sidebar';
