A sidebar is a vertical component that contains supplemental information to enrich a web page’s primary content. To improve content organization and user navigation, web developers and designers regularly integrate a sidebar menu into multiple web pages.

Components of a sidebar can include a search bar, categories, social media links, advertisements, and widgets. For example, an ecommerce website’s sidebar could host a search results filter, a shopping cart overview, or a banner promoting an upcoming sale. This versatility enhances the user experience and increases the functionality of the site.
