I've created a post category called "Blog" on this development site. I want to have a custom sidebar (created with Genesis Custom Sidebars plugin) appear on all posts in that category. I know I can go into every post and define a sidebar, but I'd like to just have it appear for all posts in that category without having to do that and make that a requirement for the client.
I've seen that there is a place to define the sidebar in the category. Once I've set up a custom sidebar in Genesis Custom Sidebars, it's available on the post and it's also available when I go into the category to edit it, it's available to select for the Primary Sidebar. It stays selected when that setting is saved and I return to edit the category. So the setting is being saved.
But when I go to a post in that category, the custom sidebar isn't showing. Any ideas?
One thing you didn't mention - do you have any widgets in the new sidebar? If you don't have something in there, some themes will default to the Primary.

Yes, I have a custom sidebar with content in it for the Blog categories. You'll see in this page's sidebar, near the bottom, I've included a Twitter feed.
I assigned this Blog sidebar to this post by hand. I would like the Marketing or Lead Gen post (another post assigned to the blog category) to display this same sidebar which is selected in the Blog category.
I hope this helps. It's very strange.
PS - Also, I'm using Agency.
