Unique Section Sidebars

Recommended Posts

texter

Hi,

I need to create unique sidebars for each section of the website. Currently there are 5-6 sections, and I'd like to put submenus for each section in the sidebar.

Is it possible to have more than three unique sidebars on the site? If yes, how/where is that implemented in Pagelines?

I know I can use an external plugin like "slayers-custom-widgets" to assign widget content to specific pages, but if the Pagelines framework has a built in solution for this, that would be preferable.

Thanks.

It's not possible to add more than three sidebars on the site (other than the standard Sidebar 1, Sidebar 2, and Sidebar Wrap). However, you can add full-width sidebar (which is a section you can add widgets to) to the Morefoot Area and/or Footer template areas and that can be another sidebar. You can also use Widget Logic to get more control over the widgets: http://wordpress.org...s/widget-logic/

This may be too complex a question for the general forums, but can you provide any pointers on how I could move the "secondary nav" component from the default display position (horizontal display beneath the primary nav) into the "secondary sidebar" widget? Would this be done with hooks?

A section (like Secondary Nav) can't be put inside a widget - it can only go inside the Header template area as shown in Drag & Drop. If you want to add secondary navigation to a widget, go to Appearance > Widgets and add the Custom Menu widget (available in the Inactive Widgets area) to the Secondary Sidebar.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,
      Todd

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?
