  1. Simply open single.php* and find the call to the get_sidebar() function:
  2.  
  3. <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
  4. Replace it by:
  5.  
  6. <?php $sidebar = get_post_meta($post->ID, "sidebar", true);
  7. get_sidebar($sidebar);
  8. ?>
  9. Now when you'll write a post, create a custom field name sidebar. As a value, give it the name of the sidebar you want to include. For example, if the value given is right, WordPress will automatically inlcude right.php as a sidebar.
