New WordPress versions have made it easier to add widgets on sidebar. Now you can easily add any widget by clicking it and then selecting the widget area from the pop menu.

In this lesson we will show you how you can fix or say stick widget areas in your admin section in order to make it always visible while you scroll for adding more widgets.
