Global Widget area (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I would like to designate a widget area that will display across the entire network for each child site that has a certain theme activated. I understand that with regular widget areas, for each child site, the widgets are reset, allowing each site to have their own set of widgets.

    I would like to be able to apply a widget from the super admin that will be applied to each sub site on the network.

    Please let me know how I can approach achieving this.

    Kind Regards,

    Maybe not an actual widget area, how about a simple query to pull the most recent post from a category that is created in the main blog. Any ideas on doing this?

    For the most part, you'd have to do something with the themes (hardcode a widget into the theme).

    I know how to hard code a widget "area" but not an actual widget. Can I hard code a "text widget" into the theme? if so, any thoughts on how to approach this?

  5. The way we did it before there were widgets.

    That is, use a function call, NOT an actual widget.

    So, you wouldn't code in a text widget, you'd just... code in what you would have put in the text widget.

    @Andrea_r Thanks for the reply, but I'm not understanding your suggestion. I need the content to be able to be administrated from inside the admin, not hard coded onto the theme sidebar.php,

    From the link you provided, I did not see how I can make a "dynamic
