  1. I want 2 sidebar widgets on my front page, and I want them to display the top few articles/blogs that are on that corresponding page. This tutorial seems applicable but I can not figure out how to make that happen.

  2. Can you add different content in the footer widgets on each page – video etc? Ive added a video on one page in the footer widget but it shows up on all pages. Id like a different video on each page in the footer widget. Possible?
