there is no real way to to do this, but it's sort of a hack and I can't guarantee it will continue to function in this way. So, use at your own risk.

So, the 'id' that is assigned to the block-field is the identifier the system uses to determine it's contents. That being said, if your block-field has a unique id rather than just "sidebar" - then you've created a sidebar for every single page of the site. The problem is that it's global - you have to choose - unique everywhere or one everywhere.

It would be best to use different regions (layouts) to allow the user a choice - the global sidebar (the one you have coded already) or a unique sidebar (which would contain the code below). The unique sidebar is auto-generated by including the collection.id in the block-field id like so:

<squarespace:block-field id="sidebar-{collection.id}" columns="12" />

Edit: simplified my answer so it wasn't so hacky.

Right now I'm solving this by creating 2 custom sidebar regions in the second (Featured) oneincludes the other blocks below it.

My first sidebar is a standard sidebar. My second sidebar is 2 block regions on top of each other

I'm not a developer but want to have creative control like we had in SS5. I don't understand why SS6 has been simplified so much that a novice can't create something wonderful like we had in SS5. The option to easily hide sidebar items depending on the page and/or blog seems so obvious. I don't want every page to look the same. Please add this back in. Thanks!
