Sidebars and Layout Templates...

Recommended Posts

garethdaine

Hi Guys, Is it possible to have different sidebars with different widgets and in different positions page to page. For example I'd like a certain sidebar on my blog page that shows a login form and the blog categories but then on my affiliate store I want the blog sidebar to be gone and the affiliate sidebar with the store categories to show, similar situation if users are on any of the BuddyPress community pages. My next questions is related to the first in terms of, I'd like my default layout template to be one column but on certain pages I would like to change this. Is this possible, for example on the blog page? Thanks in advance guys. Regards Gareth

[quote]Is it possible to have different sidebars with different widgets and in different positions page to page.[/quote] I think the easiest way to accomplish this would be to use a combination of custom CSS and custom templates. The different widgets would need to be created using the templates and customized further using CSS.

It's possible to create one custom page template in Template Setup, but the other templates would have to be created using this approach: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/custom-sections
