Hi,

 

(This question is probably dumb, I'm very sorry) 

 

How can I have different sidebars on different areas of my site using wp and pagelines framework,

That is to say ...

1 sidebar for the Blog,

1 sidebar for individual posts

and yet another sidebar for 'static pages'

 

Many special thanks in advance. 

 

Kind regards

Floris

Personally, and professionally, I use Widget Logic to determine where widgets are placed on my sites.  Works a charm!

What is widget logic and where can I find this? Spent an hour trying to figure out how to have 2 different sidebars - one displaying on post pages and the other on actual pages. Super confused! 

 

I don't like to use plugins for something this simple as it slows the site down way too much!

Hi there, widget logic is a free plugin which will allow you to control which widgets display within the sidebar on a per page basis.

 

http://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/

 

If you put both sidebars (primary and secondary) into SB1 in the drag and drop layout, you can choose to hide either primary or secondary to hide on a per page basis in the page meta options.


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.

Thanks for letting us know this worked for you 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I haven't figured out how to get the "Sync Loaded Item" option in templates menu of Platform 5 to stay checked. It doesn't give me an option to save settings when I select it, and when I select it then click off the editor, it unselects. Also if I select it before loading a template, it doesn't stay checked there either.  Whats going on?

      Hi,
      I created a Pagelines template for a "Post type" post. Whenever creating a new post page it firstly display that template post and I have to manually change it in the scope from "All of type posts " to "Current page". 
      Is there a way to fix that?

      I'm building a website in a dev environment at http://162.144.182.17/~uescocra.
      I want to import a bunch of products, and then have the products have a different template than the default template. 
      I also want to change the default template for blog posts.
      Before I go making changes, can I do this where the post type of "products" has its own global template, and the same with blog posts?
      For instance, in a product I might want to have a widget for categories, similar products, etc., and in the blog I may want list of the latest posts, blog categories, link to an email sign-up landing page, etc.
      Thanks.

      Is there a shortcode or a way to automatically pull the site name into the footer or elsewhere?
