[resolved] Sidebars not showing in Swift theme (18 posts)

    Hello. I just set up a new site and installed the Swift theme. Everything is fine except that the sidebars don't show up. I've tried various things like changing the layout options. I have a text widget with nothing but text in it in Narrow SB Left and a Calender widget in Wide SB Top.

    This site is obviously under development...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    i checked the html code in the browser, and the html of the sidebar was there.

    it seem to be a 'one in a million chance' conflict with shadowbox:

    this style from /wp-content/plugins/cool-video-gallery/cvg-player/shadowbox.css:

    #sb-container{position:fixed;margin:0;padding:0;top:0;left:0;z-index:999;text-align:left;visibility:hidden;display:none;}

    conflict with <div id="sb-container"> from sidebar.php:

    </div><!--/right container-->
    <div id="sb-container">
    	<div class="wide-sidebar">

    Awesome thanks. I deleted the plugin and that fixed it. I was planning to replace that plugin anyway because so far every video I have tried to upload has failed.

    Hi Jonas Grumby,

    May I Know what sort of issue you came across with video playing.

    Thanks,

    Apparently there is a DIV ID #sb-container in both the plugin and the theme. As far as the uploads failing, I don't know. I am now using a different plugin that lets you upload via FTP and specify the path.

    I just tried this and I'm able to play the your video file from http://johnnasta.com/cdb/wp-content/uploads/video/ExodusTrailer.mp4 with this plugin perfectly.

    Thanks,
    Praveen

    You can use the Scan Gallery Folder from Gallery Details page after uploading via FTP.

    Thanks,

    About the DIV ID #sb-container, that comes along with the Shadowbox package. I guess then only either one will work.

    Thanks,

    Sorry I didn't follow the thread from the beginning. But it appears as thought there is an image trying to be displayed with an incorrect source url.

    Is the plugin activated now? I guess not. So this is no longer the plugin issue i hope.

    And with the image issue the above reply answers it :)

    Thanks,
    Praveen

    Hi, Im having the same issue. I have WP 3.14 and using Swift theme. After I installed the plugin the sidebar disappeared. According to alchymyth in the post above, there is a conflict with shadowbox:

    Is there any possible way to fix this Praveen R?
    any suggestions anyone?

    thanks

    Hi @danmont. It seems to me that you could edit the video plugin to replace all occurrences of sb-container (in the css & php files) with your own unique ID. Then you would not have the conflict. A good editing program will let you do "advanced search & replace" so you could do all of the files simultaneously and then upload via FTP. Of course make a backup first. HTH.

    Hello, I am having the same problem, suddenly no sidebar, except I'm not using that plugin. The site, in development, is here: http://www.mossley-council.co.uk/dev/

    I'm using a righthand sidebar layout with everything in Wide SB Top. The widgets sitting there are events manager, recent posts and links. These were working fine a few days ago.

    Can anyone advise?

    I just wonder why the CENTER option (with two sidebars on each side) does not show up in the PAGE editing ???

    Also, when i tried to edit my POSTS, the page layout options do not show up.

    Is there anywhere to configure those?

    Thanks!

    You have to set that on a site-wide basis. It can't be set on a pos per post basis.

    I just upgraded to the latest version and finding that the images on the home page only show when I choose the "blog" layout. If I choose magazine layout I get the gray default image. The blog layout shows the_content but the magazine layout is not finding the images for thumbnails like it used to :(
