Sidebar Creation Plugins


Question

Posted · Report post

The Widgetizer and Columnizer sections in DMS give us incredible flexibility with widgets and sidebars. The problem is many users were reporting difficulties styling the output when using the recommended Custom Sidebars Plugin. I've fully tested a couple of different options for folks who fall in this category.

 

Content Aware Sidebars:

Sidebar Manager Light

They both allow you to easily and quickly create custom sidebars for use in DMS sections, and you will have a much easier time styling. Sidebar Manager has a pay version as well with added features. If you're also looking to be able to assign specific sidebars to specific authors, or pages, or tags, etc, I'd probably recommend paying the Sidebar Manager upgrade or stick with the free Content Aware option.

To complement what my colleague Jake has posted here,  I've used a very inexpensive premium product http://codecanyon.net/item/total-dynamic-sidebar/3287804

 

It works brilliantly, even if the GUI is less than detailed.  I was able to make as many sidebars as I liked using it, and it maintained the integrity, styling and layout of my widgets perfectly.  I highly recommend it.
