Code for Adding Additional widget in WordPress :

You can see that we just have copied the default widget code and replaced some of the ids and name of the widget in the code. You can add as many widgets as you want by repeating the above code and replacing the name and ids.

After adding this in your function.php, in admin, you can see one sidebar block in widget.
