Thanks for the reply @hube2. I’m getting that value from a field in the backend that is a drop-down selector. This selects from a post type called ‘Sidebars’. The idea is that you can create any number of sidebars, add content into them, then add them onto any page from the drop-down. As I mentioned, this works 100% on any standard page outside of Woocommerce.
In answer to your second question, the example I pasted above is in the generic sidebar.php file which is pulled into all page templates. It’s not wrapped in any kind of post loop.
