I know it is a very simple thing but I just cannot figure it out.

I always used to define widget areas and sidebar in source code, however this time I have used the UI option from Appearance > Widgets to create a widget area.

Now I need to remove, however I cannot find how to do it, because there is nothing in the source code.

    How can one create widgets-areas with the core UI? My guess is that this is theme/plugin specific UI feature. – birgire Dec 20 '15 at 14:59
  • I have a brand new 4.4 install and I can't locate a "UI Option" to create widget areas, and I am having a bit of trouble imagining how that would work without complicity from the theme. – s_ha_dum Dec 20 '15 at 15:34

    As far as I know the commercial theme Avada has such a feature to add custom widget areas but it is nothing provided by WP Core. – Jan Beck Dec 23 '15 at 5:57
  • The widget areas in my theme are set up inside the theme's functions.php for placing the drag and drop widget panel in the dashboard and in the relevant bar widget area - for which widgets to show when. It had comments like: // Enable custom class only if the left sidebar is active. where left could be whichever sidebar. – Steve Feb 7 '16 at 7:33
  • It also had a large section headed Register sidebars and widgetized areas. which is where you set up arrays to fill the dashboard panels. You could create page parts (like my-sidebar.php for example) which had code in them to control which widgets were shown when. If a widget had nothing in it it simply did not appear. – Steve Feb 7 '16 at 7:42
