WordPress Theme - Widget Problems

I am trying to build a custom widget area in a wordPress theme. With the code I have, my admin area is showing widget areas with the default name, not the name I am giving them.

This is what it looks like:

function create_widget( $name, $id, $description ) { $args = array( 'name' => __( $name ), 'id' => $id, 'description' => $description, 'before_widget' => ' ', 'after_widget' => ' ', 'before_title' => '<h5', 'after_title' => '</h5>' ); register_sidebar ( '$args' ); }

create_widget( 'Left Footer', 'left_footer', 'Displays on the left side of the footer' ); create_widget( 'Right Footer', 'right-footer', 'Displays on the right side of the footer' );

Can anyone help me? I'm not sure what is wrong or missing..

Nevermind, I've got it.
