SideBar Areas not Customizing in Drag & Drop Templates

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am using Pagelines 2.4.1 and migrated my site last night live. The sidebar areas (Primary, Secondary, etc) are no longer able to be customized per a template.

 

When I change SB1 on any template it changes universially through out my site.

 

Website URL:  www.novarelibrary.com
WordPress Version: WordPress 3.5.1.

Plugins in Use: Broken Link Checker, Duplicator (what we used to move the site over), Easy Contact Forms and NextGen Gallery.  (Note - I removed Next Gen and tried to see if it fixed the issue and it did not :( )
Server/Host: HostGator
Screenshots: Jing Video - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7-TbEK4D5B5N0R5SzdJaDBTdGs/edit?usp=sharing

 

Thank you for your help!

Can you please elaborate further what change you're making in Sidebar 1?

 

(Sidebars are global areas, so if a widget inside Primary Sidebar that is activated in Sidebar 1 (for example) is changed, it will change on all pages where Primary Sidebar is present.)

Hi,

 

I set for Template 3 for example to be just the secondary toolbar and template 5 to the Primary and Universal Sidebars.  On my development server, I was able to do this will sidebars appearing just where I need them. 

 

Now, all three appear everywhere.  If this is in fact, how it is suppose to work.  Can you help guide me on how to have widgets not appear on every page?  The Widget Context Plugin I normally use conflicts with Pagelines.

 

Thank you for the help.

When you are selecting Template 3, for example, in which template area is that secondary bar being activated? In Page Templates? In Content Area?

Hi,

 

When I select Template 3.   The Secondary Bar is being placed in SB1 in the Drag & Drop Template Area.

There isn't a way to actually select Template 3 and select Sidebar 1. If you're in Drag & Drop, and you select SB1, the Template listing (with Template 1, Template 2, etc.) disappears because SB1 is a global area and can't be customized on a template-by-template basis.

Hi,

It was working like this before... If this is the case - how can I customize what widgets appear on what page? I do not need everything on every page.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

I just had a light bulb go off and have my own answer.   For each page, I hide/display the sidebars I want to display.  Works like a charm.

Thank you so much Catrina for all your patience and help.

I am having the same issue. I have just installed Pagelines on my site. I woul dike different sidebars to appear on different sets of pages within my site.

When I try and create a template with alternate sidebars the sidebar changes in every template from default to 5. Is there another way to "set" or "save the templates with different sidebars per template. I understand that the sidebars are "global" but isn't the point of having a template to be able to change the content area?

Is there a way I can Call on my different menus for different pages?

the sidebars can be controlled on the bottom of any page.  You can hide/display the different options.

Hi this is an already resolved issue. Please don't post on these as they're usually ignored by staff because they're resolved.  It's always best to create new topics, so that you get the best answer.

 

There is a confusion of terminology here.  You are talking about changing the content of the sidebars on a different page, post, category basis, not changing the sidebars.  The sidebars are only containers.  You want to change what's in the container.

 

To do that, I recommend the Widget Logic plugin, and use of WordPress' conditional tags.  In implementing this plugin you absolutely must read the documentation, thoroughly, and study the list of tags.   Widget Logic is found at http://www.wordpress.org/extent/plugins

        First of all, sorry for my bad English.  I am developing an ecommeece with wp, woocommerce, PL5 and quickshop, and I need to do some changes in the simple product grid. I want to change the classes of some divs, but I can't find the templates. 
      Also, I change the grid of the category products pages, but I didn't make it correctly.
      This is the cat archive's: http://globosdemar.com/wp/categoria-producto/camisetas-para-ninos-y-ninas/
      Can you help me?

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      Could someone explain exactly how the new template sync works or what it is suppose to do?

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
       
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!
