Plugins: Create Custom Sidebars

In Oxygen, there is no default sidebars (no theme) so only two of the plugins work as expected: Lightweight Sidebar Manager and Content Aware Sidebars All the others are shown only inside Widgets area, but that menu-item is non-existant.

So, at the end, I have chosen the Lightweight Sidebar Manager

In normal “theme” circumstances, for simplest and most intuitive, use Cherry Sidebars, but for the most complete, the winner is Custom Sidebars
