In Appearance – widgets

 

– Word press has a different way of dealing with the sidebar. Basically instead of assigning sidebar ‘blocks’ to certain pages (like drupal) you assign whole sidebars to pages using the ‘Page Template’ feature. So pages that had a lot of sidebar widgets spread around a lot of pages are affected. We have tried to manually lessen the problem a bit in some sites by moving some sidebars to the footer etc.
