This tutorial will show you how to create a double sidebar in your Weebly site.

A double sidebar page layout grants you 3 drag and drop columns total -- 1 main content area and 2 sidebars. By creating a double sidebar page layout, you can simply apply the double sidebars to any page in your Weebly site by simply changing the "Header Type" of that page.

Since Weebly's current columns (i.e., quasi-sidebars) are not global, if you need to make a change to a column that appears on multiple pages, you have to go through each page that has the column to make the change. This is a very time consuming process, especially if your site has hundreds of pages.

With a double sidebar page layout, making a change to a sidebar on one page will automatically reflect on every other page that is using the double sidebar page layout.

Of course, if you choose, you can also set both sidebars, or just one, to be non-global. If you do this, making a change to a sidebar on one page will not automatically reflect in every other page that is using the double sidebar page layout.
