hi volks,

 

some sidebar confusions and i can't find a solution!

 

in drag and drop i have Primary Sidebar and Secondary Sidebar (with option: hide by default) and Tertiary Sidebar (with option: hide by default).

 

In Secondary Sidebar i use the Category Widget and in the Primary Sidebar i'm using a Subpages Widget (to display childpages).

 

in the Pagelines page options tab i checked on blog page, archive page, category page "Show Secondary Sidebar".

 

in the past time these setting did what i wanted them to do:

display childpages on pages

display categorys on blog posts, etc.

 

suddently these settings did not work any more.

 

on every new post now i have to check the indiv. Settings Box "Show Secondary Sidebar" below the editor.

 

do you know a better way to create what i need for this page?

 

thanks!

Not sure what your issue is, as it works for me ?

The page below is displays only the Primary Sidebar and its widget.

 

http://d.pr/i/QAJJ

 

This is the blog page, I went to PageLines > Page Options > Blog > then checked to show both the Secondary and the Tertiary Sidebar.

 

http://d.pr/i/TcTy

http://d.pr/i/bXCX

 

Now back to the first page I shown above, which displayed only the Primary Sidebar, I went to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Pages > Selected the page and scrolled down to the PageLines Meta Settings > Page Setup and check both the Secondary and the Tertiary Sidebar.

Therefore, you most likely have configured something somewhere incorrectly or you have a plugin/custom code preventing this from working.

no sorry, no errors from the plugins.

even more errors inside pagelines - i tried to hide the Mainnav or the Brandnav on the Pagelines "Page Options" Blog Page Tab - and nothing happens, it seems like there is no reaction.

Can you install a free application called JIng, which allows you to capture your screen by image or video and then share it. Once installed, can you record your settings and the issue and we can then try to recreate your issue.

Try disabling your translation and see if it works when using the default language (English).

Sorry but that changes nothing!

 

Have a look at that Screenshot "PageLines Meta Setting" made while creating a new post: http://screencast.com/t/tk8U6Vgjn

You can choose "Show Tertiary Sidebar" although showing the Tertiary Sidebar is already setup in the Page Options Setup for BLOG Pages!

 

The Settings from the global Page Options Setup for BLOG Pages seems not to work...!?

 

I have the same problem on two more pages!

 

 

>> Just disabled all plugins but that changed nothing too.

 

>> If i put the Tertiary Sidebar into the sidebar wrap the same thing happens:

      setting up global Page Options to "Show Tertiary Sidebar" but thats not working at all.

 

>>> Thats interesting: In Drag & Drop i unchecked the "hide by default" option http://screencast.com/t/mzdbFCRKZSo

        and i now can choose "Hide Tertiary Sidebar" in Pagelines Meta Settings below the post editor: http://screencast.com/t/9T5WHLKS

Hi there, I've just tested on my setup and I'm getting the same results as Danny.

 

It could also be that there's a corrupted file somewhere, if more problems are cropping up on other pages etc.

 

Have you tried installing a fresh copy of the framework to see if this corrects itself. Is there a live link to the site we can look at.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi James, i did as you told, with fresh installs of wordpress, pagelines, pagelines child theme, default EN language file and deactivated plugins.

 

PL Settings:

Template SB Settings

SB Blog Page Settings

 

Results:

Blog Page ==> Works!

Single Post ==> Fails! / Shows SB 1 and SB 2 / SB 3 is hidden!

 

Any ideas why SB 3 is hidden on single post pages?

Hi,

 

I think the solution to this issue isn't going through a complex series of hiding and showing sidebars. Instead, you may simply wish to apply Widget Logic which can enable a widget to appear only on pre-determined pages, posts, categories, etc.

 

If you set the options in PageLines Site Options to Hide Sidebars when Empty, and Widget Logic is hiding the widget on a page or category, from my experience the sidebar is automatically hidden.  If the widget is displayed, so is the sidebar containing it. This method also allows you to have dozens of widgets in a single sidebar, even if you display just one or none at all.

 

I hope this helps. Also, make sure you follow the link to Conditional Statements in the first page of that plugin. It's a wonderful resource.

Hi Rob, thanks, widget logic is a cool plugin. But basically its good to know whether PageLines has the ability to manager the sidebars in the specified way or not!? => to know with Pagelines Its impossible to manage the sidebars for single posts and pages could save a lot of time for me and other users. i would be very glad if you would give a clear answer to that question. thanks

You seem to be confused, Page Options > Blog Page only manages your Blog Page, it does not manage your Single Posts, Single Posts are not a Blog Page but a Blog Post.

 

You manage the Sidebars for your posts on an individual basis, there is no default global option.

Thanks Danny, that was my expected answer.

 

But i think that Pagelines suggests the ability to manage sidebars in Single Posts and on the Blog Page and thats what confused me.

 

Global Option for Single Post SB management would be a great function for further PL development!

 

=> Now its seems clear that i need another plugin for sidebar management.

      I am having an issue with the size of the font in a text box widget on my sidebar. It has me completely baffled because I have two text widgets on my sidebar and the other one is displaying perfectly. 
      The sole difference between the two is the amount of text in the widget, but that can't be the problem.
      My site is: loveandnudes.com and the text widgets are on the right side at the top. 
      I have duplicated the one with the issue and I am fiddling with it right now to see if I can find a solution. But I would love any suggestions. I though CSS would do the trick, but either I tried the wrong thing - or I put it into the wrong place.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi,
      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that? 
      Thanks!

      I am working  on a PL5 site that uses a IDX feed plugin that includes templates for that individual plugin (ex - a property listings template, a single property template, etc.) However, when I edit the Pagelines Content area to also feature a sidebar it will not actually save or apply to any of the other property pages. Are there any know issues with the templates and hierarchy? It appears to be defaulting to read-width and I can't find any way to override this setting.
      Here is a link in case that is helpful to see: http://getreadyforwow.com/ihf/idx/mls-20649468-99_sunny_st_newport_beach_ca_92663
      Is there anything I can provide to you that may be helpful in solving this issue?
