Sidebar Widgets: Posts vs Pages

Recommended Posts

comhairle

Hi. The docs say that there should be two sidebar areas: main_sidebar and Secondary Sidebar and that using both means you can have different sidebars on posts and pages. I have a widget block for main_sidebar and that works... for both pages and posts. I have no block called Secondary Sidebar. How do I get a different sidebar on posts? Thanks

You need to enable the Secondary Sidebar by dragging and dropping it in Settings > Template Setup. You also need to edit the sidebar settings in the post editor (these are located on the right side).

Thank you. In my WordPres admin, I have a Settings > menu with no Template Setup option, or a iBlog Pro > menu with Theme Options or Feature Setup options. Where should I be looking?

Ah, sorry, you're using iBlogPro, not PlatformPro. To enable that secondary sidebar, you need to add content to it by going to Appearance > Widgets.

Thanks, I appreciate the help. As I mentioned, when I go to Widgets, I do not have a sidebar block called Secondary Sidebar. There's nothing there to add widgets to; thus my confusion. Is my install broken or something? It seems like it should be there.

Ahhh, I see. I think the sidebar you are looking for is actually the drag and drop sidebar. This is a sidebar that you can enable in an individual page or post.
