I want a sidebar on the right of my home page which will contain a calendar and a subscribe link to my mailing list.
The problem I’m having is when I add the layout options as ‘sidebars on right’ to my home page I get the ‘recent posts’ widget from my blog which I don’t want.
I’m getting confused somewhere along the line so any help appreciated as to how I can have sidebars on each page (main and blog) with different content – one for the home page and another for the blog.
Thanks for any help.April 9, 2015 at 17:48 UTC #21169scramblerModerator
you may have default widgets already put in the sidebars.
the content of the sidebar is managed in Appearance > Widgets.
Open the primary and secondary sidebar areas and remove any widget in there you don’t want, and place the ones you do wantApril 9, 2015 at 20:05 UTC - Views: 1 #21170
Ok – I think I’ve managed to do it using the primary and secondary sidebar areas and turning one or the other off on the per page settings.
I just need to separate the widgets now with white space rather than having one long widget area on the home page.
Thanks for your answer which made me look a bit closer.April 9, 2015 at 20:17 UTC - Views: 3 #21171scramblerModerator
To separate the widget, use a background color on the widgets themselves in Main Options > Sidebar & Layout > Individual widgets > Individual Widget BG instead of the Sidebar widget area ( Main Options > Sidebar & Layout > Primary widget area > Primary widget area BG)
You can then increase the space using the individual widget Top and bottom margin boxesApril 9, 2015 at 20:32 UTC #21172
Thanks Scrambler for a quick reply and for sorting that out. Very much appreciated
