Primary Sidebar - Widgets Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'd like to have an empty left primary sidebar so I removed all default widgets like search, calendar, categories etc etc

For some reason the sidebar still displays widgets but if I activate only one widget (let's say categories...) then the sidebar will correctly display such widget only.

I already did the standard procedures like deactivating all plugins and cache cleaning.

Some idea?

Thanks

Hello,

Do you just want the empty left primary sidebar to be there even though no widgets are added? (The primary sidebar is equipped with default widgets, which explains why they show up automatically if you don't add your own custom widgets to it)

Yes I do... I 'd like an empty sidebar (or at least till I'll decide to activate a widget like - let's say - a menu) ....so it seems where I do not set widgets there PL will activate the default widget set... but where I set just one widget there PL doesn't activate default widget set...

Am I correct?

Yes, you are correct.

If you need just an empty sidebar, then you should just leave it alone for now. You can add a dummy text widget in there (an empty one) and then use CSS to hide that one so that it's as if content is in there but it's just there to ensure that the other default widgets don't get activated.

Catrina, do you have a reference or example script on how to hide a widget (or similar element) by CSS?

Thank you very much.

Thank you Simon, it works fine. :)

Just for my information...I always like to learn something new... how to do it by CSS as Catrina suggested?

It just required that you hide the text widget using its selector and this CSS attribute but Simon's solution is a lot better (mine is more of a hack): display: none;

      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,

      Hi!

      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!
