This is invalid PHP: do not use curly quotes. And please add an explanation: why would that solve the problem? –  toscho Aug 9 '13 at 8:52

If you are using more (or even less) up-to-date theme it should support widgets.

See Appearance Widgets SubPanel in Codex for overview.

If you're wanting to add something outside of the widgets, you can do so by editing the sidebar.php file of your theme too.

Go into your dashboard and click widgets to your left, and you will see all the tabs there you just drag and drop them to your right inside the panel.
