Different footer on different pages ** SOLUTION**

Recommended Posts


I remember seeing a post from someone wanting to have a different footer on another page. Well I had someone request the same thing and I ran across the solution totally by accident and I want to share it. This might not be the section for it so it might get moved. First you are going to need 2 plugins Sidebar manager which is suggested by pagelines in use with multiple side bar and custom widget areas (paid)  there might be another plugin you can use but this is what I use and have been using for 2 years now.


On to the procedure  once you have them both installed you first want to go to Sidebar Manager and make another footer area .


Sidebar title  -- should say  something like footer sidebar


Leave the the replace section set to -- primary and put something for the description .


Now go to the appearance>widgets and add  4 widget items or how many you want to use. Now go to DMS front end and I am assuming you have the widgetizer in the footer. Go into the options and select Footer as your sidebar. 


Save and refresh.


Now go into the CWA settings (custom widget areas)  and add a custom area and call it second footer or something to help you now what it is for and choose a postion--- select footer from the drop down and hit publish. After hitting publish it should take you to a page where you can drag widgets into the area choose the same number of widgets as the main footer sidebar or swap one out that you don’t want showing on a particular page. Hit publish and you are done.


Now for the final step create or edit a post or page and you shall see a new section under the text area called page sidebars select your second footer and publish.


You can see the result on my test site Footer and second footer.




When the site goes live the link will not work so I will try and update this with live site links.


Hope this helps someone. Sorry if I left out a step.

      In the footer of my website, I can't find where Leasing is located. I have to remove it.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      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?
