For anyone in the future that is reading this post, like myself, I think you would like to have a working link to Aram's website tutorial to do what is talked about in this post. I found it on the site he mentioned, but in an archive now:
I couldn't get any of the code in these posts to work for me, but his tutorial he wrote worked on the first try for me!
I'm pretty new to silverstripe so I also enjoyed the site that the tutorial is on, I found a few other really nice tutorials on that same site,

this may come in handy for anybody who wants to easily include forms in a sidebar or any other area of the site, without controlling a hidden page:

Hi Aram,

I was creating a sidebar on my theme but when I put the the php files, admin does not work properly it shows 'there is some error'

I am using silverstripe 3.0 please guide me how to do that and rectify the issue

Thanks in advance

Hey guys! I know this post is somewhat ancient, but here I am stuck with the same problem as martin_w had: when I upload the SidebarPage and run dev/build I can't seem to create a new sidebar page within the admin panel. The screen just turns blank and nothing happens. Surprisingly, however, when I delete the SidebarPage.php file I am able to open the editor for the SidebarPage within the admin panel. Andyone an idea on how martin_w solved that problem? I also tried Aram's tutorial on ssbits but the problem remains exactly the same.
