I am not quite sure what you're asking, as it would appear you already answered it, when you mentioned the Universal Sidebar. I have no experience with Bannerize plugin, can you inform us how it manages your banners please.

Do you use shortocodes or HTML ?

Hi Danny, I'm using Bannerize just with setting options adding widgets to diferent sidebars. In Universal Sidebar I can show one image with one, two or more banners inside but I need to show in header diferents banners inline and independent of each other . With Universal Sidebar I can show differents banners (like widgets in this case) independent of each other one above the other, but no inline. I hope I explained better now.

thank you

First, that plugin hasn't been updated to WP 3.4.2, so it's likely to break.

Next, the Universal Sidebar is a great tool for this, but the plugin seems to want to add PHP not shortcodes. The alignment of two, side-by-side, is going to be difficult without custom code to wrap the group and each individual ad space, so they can be aligned.

Before you get too far into this, I'd strongly urge you to write the author and ask him when it's going to be updated and how to implement in a framework?

Thanks Rob, maybe I should change plugin to manage banners.

If the plugin hasn't been updated like Rob mentioned, then changing would be the best course of action for functionality and security reasons.

Finally I solved the problem with the same plugin WP Bannarize, using shortcodes. Very easy. WP Bannerize will be part of the upcoming new wpXtreme!

Many hanks for your help and your advice

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
