Add widgets column to a Page - how?

Recommended Posts

I have a full-width page. I'd like to add a widgets column to the right side. How do i do this? I looked in the documentation but couldn't find anything about this, other than to create a two-column section, then drop a widgetizer into one of the two columns.

 

My problem is, I already have the content in my full-width page. With the old system(s), you simply change the style from one-column to two-columns, and the existing content goes into the main column. How to do it in DMS?

The documentation is correct.  You can clone sections in DMS.  The content will initially duplicate, but when you add something new to it, you'll see only the new stuff once saved and refreshed.

 

Thus you can place a widgetizer into the cloned sections and add widgets to it.

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?
      The page is question is: http://www.michaelkummer.com
      Thanks
      Michael

      We're seeing an abnormal break in widgets in Safari (El Capitan v10.11.4). 3 Widgets set for 4 of 12 columns each breaks correctly in Chrome and Firefox, but the 3rd widget goes to another line in Safari.
      Screenshot attached.
      Hoping there's a CSS fix you could recommend in the meantime, until an update. You can see this on our home page: www.novusweb.com.

      I have an issue with the widgets on my blog post page. The Facebook widget is being shifted up and next to the Mumii widget above...? How can I force it to remain underneath?

      Hello,
      I added a post to my blog last night and as soon as I published the content, my "primary sidebar" fell to the bottom of the home page. When I go into other areas of the site, like "contact" or "about", the side bar comes back to where it belongs. So far I tried going to Appearance->Customize and then deleting and reducing assets in the "Widgets: Primary Sidebar" but nothing changed/worked.
       
      I consider myself slightly savvy but I don't quite understand many terms and lingo with html and CSS - so I would appreciate the most laments terms possible when describing a solution.

      Hello,
       
      I am working on may client's website, who is the manager of he site for his client. My client has hired me to fix the footer area of the website. As you can see here: http://www.makerstoolworks.com/, the MoreFoot Right Widget is Showing in the middle column.
       
      I would have downloaded the theme and done some digging into the files to see if there is a div tag out of place and so on. However, my client does not have the ftp login info for the website (as he is the marketing strategist. [Yes I know.... it's weird]).
       
      However, if you can point me into the right direction on where I need to start looking in order to fix the problem.
       
      Also, I do not know if my client's client has paid for premium support. So I hope that this question can be answered for me in all regards.
       
      Thank you
