widgetized area on right-hand side of header

Recommended Posts

rich_162534

I found an old thread which kind of dealt with this issue, but not effectively (for me). On most sites that I develop, I have the need for custom information on the right-hand side of the header. For instance, on a medical practice website, each doctor wants their own contact information in the upper right of their web page. In this case, I'm using PlatformPro 1.5.3 I would like to humbly request that the developer split the header into left and right quadrants with the right-hand side widgetized. Until then, can someone please help me with exactly what I should put in what files in order to create a widgetized area? I'm super unclear about Platform Base vs. Platform Pro and what code goes in functions.php and what goes in header.php.

Adding content to your site using PlatformBase gets easier after the first time. Do you already have PlatformBase installed/activated? Have you seen this documentation on using a hook in the child theme (PlatformBase) to add content?: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/base-child-theme

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

It seems I have a fundamental misunderstanding of which of the Pagelines themes I should be installing and using (activating?). I bought the full suite, so I have... PageLines Framework - Developer PlatformPro Base PlatformPro Developer What is the best (most feature-rich and flexible) of these to build my sites with?

Well, PageLines Framework is the latest. If you wish to continue using PlatformPro, then PlatformBase must be the active theme. In either case, the changes are made in files called functions.php. In PlatformBase, you'll find it in wp-content/themes/platformbase In PageLines Framework, you'll need a plugin called PageLines-Customize which is located in wp-content/plugins/pagelines-customize The process is done using hooks. For PageLines Framework, you'll want to check our Wiki (docs) at http://www.pagelines.com/wiki and for PlatformPro, you'll need http://www.pagelines.com/docs In addition to adding your hook to functions.php (in either case) you'll want to add some custom CSS to properly align the address information as you wish.
