Replacing the Spotlight sidebar with a widget sidebar

Hello,

I know this has been asked before, but I just can’t seem to get it.

I would like to replace the Spotlight Side bar with a sidebar that I can place widgets in.

I have a child theme and I have tried to follow the instructions, but can’t seem to get it.

If I could get some step by steps instructions I would greatly appreciate it.

Regards,

jayjay
