it seems that the Secondary sidebar does not show at all. I have set the sidebars and their locations in Theme Options properly as the tutorial says, but when I put a widget into my Secondary sidebar – it won’t show up on any page. However when I move the widget into Primary sidebar – it shows up fine.
I chechcked this for the sidebar set to the right of the content (and the same happens for a sidebar set to the left side of the content). The only way I manage to see my widgets in the Secondary sidebar is when I set the template with the sidebars on each side of the content.
Please see the images on what I mean:
Could you please help me to make Secondary sidebar work as needed?

That is exactly what the secondary sidebar is for, the Sidebar / Content / Sidebar layout. Where otherwise would you want it to display?
Edit: From what I understand from your screenshots you would like it to display below the primary sidebar. If that’s the case, why not just add the widgets to the primary sidebar?

Oh,ok..sorry then. I thought that Secondary sidebar shifts below the primary,when I use the layout with the sidebar on one side.
I want to use primary Sidebar for widgets that I display e.g. on nearly all pages and secondary sidebar for widgets that differs according to the website section. In this case I could only have one primary sidebar with a set of widgets that are same for all pages (and widgets’ content on one place) and custom secondary sidebars with different widgets.
If I do what you suggest, I would have to put the widgets that are same for all the pages into each of my custom sidebar , adding to it the widgets that are different for sections. So instead of managing the content of the widgets that are same for all the pages in one sidebar, i ll have to manage the content of e.g. 2 same widgets across all these custom sidebars (e.g. I have 4 custom sidebars for 4 different sections of the web). Editing the same content of the widget 4 times in each of these sidebars.Daniel TaraKeymaster
You can use Jetpack’s Widget Visibility module for what you’re trying to achieve.
