Hi Evan, I have downloaded the Sidekick section as a zip file to my computer, but I don´t know how to install this section in my PageLines and use it. Waiting for your answer. Thank you very much.

Thank you very much Evan. I got installed and it works perfectly well!!! One more question. How I get rid of the square line around the menu? I would like to see only the letters without a container around them. Thanks again.

Hi Evan,


I have received an email announcing the new version 1.1 for SideKick but I don´t know how to upgrade it in PageLines dashboard. I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

Hi Evan,


Just downloaded v 1.2.1 of the sidekick and tried to install it on WP 3.8 with PageLines Framework 2.4.4 (not a DMS). After uploading downloaded zip as a regular WP plugin I can't see any new sections in the Drag&Drop area for sidebars. I also tried to install it via Pagelines Sections plugin interface but it said zip is not a valid Pagelines section bundle.


BTW I also didn't manage to install it via Pagelines store as you adviced in your summer reply, looks like Pageline completely switched to DMS and the Framework infrastructure is not actively suprted any longer.


Could you advice on how to activate Sidekick with all software versions mentioned, please?


Thank you,

Hello @vasyl 


This post is from July last year. Please can you start your own topic and the developer will be able to help with this. 




Make sure you select Sidekick from the drop down. 

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'm using the latest versions of DMS2 and Wordpress and the Sidekick menu version 1.2.7 which I think is still the latest version, and I now need to update the menu. But making any change and trying to save the menu results in a "403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!" message. I've checked the permissions and can't see anything wrong and I can make other changes including updating the Hero Nav menu on the same site… sandgateprimaryschool.co.uk. Does anyone know what's going on?

      I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
      Original: http://dms.elsue.com/accordions/ (authored by @ellenmva)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accordions/
      Original: http://www.pagelines.com/shop/third-party-extensions/sidekick/ (authored by Evan Mattson)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sidekick/
      I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.

      Sidekick 1.2.7   Am probably missing something simple here, but is there a way to have clickable link in the menu that simply expands/collapses the menu? (Menu set to Expandable mode, WP Menu mode.)   Here would be a simple WP menu:   Business Home: http://homepage.com/business HR: Benefits: http://homepage.com/business/benefits Form 1: http://homepage.com/business/form1 Form 2: http://homepage.com/business/form2 Form 3: http://homepage.com/business/form3 Policies: http://homepage.com/business/policies Contact Us: http://homepage.com/business/contact  
      In this case, we have "HR" there only for organization on the menu, however we don't necessarily have a dedicated page just for HR. We're looking to make "HR" clickable just as the other items would be, but just expand/collapse the submenu. (Basically, the same functionality as the expand/collapse arrows, but also for the item title)
      I've seen for some other types of menus, you can just put the link for the menu item as "#", but that doesn't seem to work to expand/collapse the Sidekick menu. 
      Was there something I was missing?

      In addition to a few other settings, like Expandable, Accordion, etc...
      Global Site Settings:
      Mode: WP Menu
      Default Menu: (one of my menus)
      Fallback Menu: (one of my menus)
      Local Settings:
      Mode: WP Menu
      Menu: Default
      Sidekick only works if I set the menu at the Local Settings level. I want to set it once at Global Site Settings level.
      Please help. tyvm.
