Standard VS Sticky
Each post or page template allows you to optionally use 2 sidebars, which means you can use only the standard sidebar, only sticky sidebar, or combine these two, one below another.
“Sticky” means that widgets inside this sidebar will always be visible while scrolling through the website content. This can be very useful when you want to point out some important content on your website, for example, advertisements, newsletter forms, social networks, etc… Sticky sidebars may improve user engagement and conversion significantly.
Finally, you will be able to pick any of these sidebars for each page or post.
