Sidebars in categories

resolved (5 posts) (2 voices)

  1. Hi there, I have the same problem like the guy one year ago:


    I have to use in several categories various sidebars. Since this dialog doesnt exist, Itried to do that with the plugin [url=]DYNAMIC WIDGETS[/url].

    But the awake theme still picks the Primary Widget Area.

    If You didn't work it out until now, I would be also pretty happy if You'd tell me how to turn off the primary widget area, so the plugin would work, am I right?

    Hello slackzone,

    If your using the latest version of our themes then you can edit the archives sidebar and sidebar layout in Dashboard -> your theme -> Specialty Pages.

  3. Hi Eliott,
    yes thanks, ...ok this would cause, that the primary widget area is gone,and the new one appears. But what I want to do is:

    I have different categories and they shall have each an other sidebar.

    How can I add some more archive-pages( and related sidebars)?


    How can I remove it, so that the Dynamic Widget-Plugin would work?

    Open up /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/theme.php and around line 520 you should see this,

    if( is_front_page() )
    	$sidebar = 'home';

    Below that add this,

    if ( is_category( 12 ) ) { $sidebar = 'mycustomsidebar'; }

    And you can keep on adding lines like that to change your sidebar for each category.
