Different sidebars for categories

Recommended Posts

sheilahoff

This site http://coachmediateconsult.com/ doesn't have a blog feed that lists all posts. Instead it has two category listing:

http://coachmediateconsult.com/words-of-art/

http://coachmediateconsult.com/ask-karen/

 

I've always used the free WooSidebars successfully to make custom sidebars. But I've never needed to have two unique sidebars by category before. I'm not sure if this is possible. I've used the built in settings to choose the "conditions" to assign including post types, taxonomy and hierarchy. In widgets I do have unique sidebars for each one with unique things in each. But I seem to only be able to have them all with either one or the other but not distinct.

 

Does anyone know if there's a way to have them be different by category?

 

Thanks,

Sheila

There is a plugin called widget logic that allows you to only show widgets on certain pages and a bunch of other funky stuff.

Thanks Simon. That's the SAME as the WooSidebar plugin. The question is, does WP allow that to happen with categories. I've successfully made unique sidebars throughout every site I've designed using WooSidebar. I suppose I could try this other plug-in. But since I know this one and have it in wide use I'd rather not introduce a new variation. I'd like to get this one working if that is possible. I've also posted at Woo about it.

FYI I figured it out. Not sure that it was a WooSidebar issue. I had unique sidebars for each category. What I had to do was only have one unique sidebar for Ask Karen then make the other one the default primary sidebar. Voila! Now it works as desired and without having to figure out WidgetLogic. YAY!.

      I am trying to add a widgetizer to my page/post and the system does not let it drag. The system creates  large Widgetizer logo and nothing will happen. What am I doing wrong?  I am using DSM 1.1.9.  Website is www.moveincache.com

      Hello everyone. :)   Is possible set a selected Section Area to height of window browser with custom CSS, just like DMS2 presets? Someone knows some best practice?   I know how to set to fixed footer, but i think this case of study is different.   Thanks!

      I have pages that display on phones and pages for desktops/laptops.  The ipad displays the mobile/phone pages but would look far better if they displayed the desktop version.  How/Can I display the desktop version on ipad?  If I cannot do that, can you advise me as to the best course of action?  Thank you.

      In between forum posts, I am getting the above response telling me to wait another 57 seconds before posting a second topic.  (WHAAAAT?) To continue with my post, I have to hit the back button only to find that you have erased everything I just wrote. Please explain and fix this immediately.  Thank you.
