Add Widget Areas without functions php

Recommended Posts

Hi, am trying to add extra widget areas without editing functions.php by hand

 

Is there a plugin or extension in the pagelines store where you can add extra widget areas to either the header, or page, or footer etc and give them a name?

 

Any help appreciated!

Kind thanks

Dominic

Dominic,

 

I recommend using Widget Logic.  This plugin is available, free, at Wordpress.org.  It is one of the must-have plugins.

 

You use it in coordination with Conditional Tags.  With them, you can place a widget in a sidebar, but tell it to only appear on pages or in categories or even in a specific page, post, category, etc.  That way you can use the sidebars you have in almost limitless fashion.  You may end up with 100 widgets in a sidebar, but have only three or four appear in any particular place.

It's really rather easy to use, once you get the hang of it, and that won't take long.

      We are using ProPricing but We cant change the colors from the Table. 
      How can we change it? It is all grey and we would like to add colors according our identity.

      Any chance of a pagelines table plug-in coming? I know that the use of short codes and bootstrap can achieve this, but I can't seem to find any easy/visual editor way of doing this. There are table plug-ins around for wordpress, but honestly, they are pretty clunky. I'd pay for a tables plug-in, given how much I would use tables if I could.

      When trying to activate the Facebook Plugin, using the Bootstrap Theme under Platform 5, the following Fatal Error occurs:
      Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' in /wp-content/plugins/pl-plugin-login-facebook/libs/fblogin.php on line 35
      If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated...

      Hi,
      We're using Yoast SEO plugin and it can not crawl the content that is in a Pagelines text container, only the Paglines framework content. 
      I can see that it is a problem with SEO plugins and external site builders to read the content. So is there a Pagelines SEO plugin that would solve that? 
      I know that it does not effect stats on google, but it is not possible to see the full picture of SEO status.

      Hi,
      I am using the plugin WP-Property with an addon called "WP Property Supermap".
      Testwise I've added the shordcode [supermap] to
      the post loop a embed section a text section The supermap is located as third after the H1 and H2 tags but the map gets displayed at the top of the page, 
      All three ways break up the page structure of all content which is above the supermap.
      My question is: Where is the error?  Is it the plugin or the theme which causes the display errors?
