On this page you will see all the widget styles and sidebar positions available plus how to set up each of them.



All sidebars are fully collapsible

What exactly is a collapsing sidebar? It's quite simple, whenever a postion does not have any widgets published, that position does not appear on the frontend of the theme. Consider the example below:



This particular row has 6 sidebar positions available to publish to. Let's say you only want to publish to 4 of these positions. The theme will automatically collapse the positions you do not want to use and adjust the size of the widgets accordingly:



If no widgets are published to the row the entire row itself will not show. The best feature of this is every widget can be published to its own unique pages so the layout of your site can change on every page!

Infinite Layouts

Because there are so many sidebar positions available in so many different areas, the number of layouts you can create are limitless! For example, if you would like to show your main content area on the right side of your site but still have a column of widgets, simply publish your widgets to the Right or Right Inset position, or both. The same would be true for the opposite, if you want a column on the left simply publish widgets to Left or Left Inset. Of course you can always choose to not have a column at all. Remember, any position not published to will automatically collapse and the remaining area will automatically adjust. There is no need to choose a pre-defined layout for your entire site, simply use the power of collapsing sidebar positions and take advantage of the numerous amount of positions to create any layout you can dream of! Be sure to check out the layout of widgets below.

Dozens of Sidebars

Below is a complete list of all the sidebar positions available for this template.



How to configure widget styles:

  1. Install any plugin/widget you wish to publish to your site.
  2. In the widgets control panel, drag the widget to whichever sidebar(s) you want it to appear on (each widget has a built-in area where you can select which areas and/or pages to display the widget on).
  3. Select the widget style from the drop-down menu on the widget.


  4. Click "Save" (Note: If this is the first time placing the widget, you may have to click "Save" a second time before the style is applied).

  • If you want to customize which widgets display on each page, return to the widget control panel and use the Widget Context options for each widget to set the placement properties.
