Plugin Directory

Test out the new Plugin Directory and let us know what you think.

Side Content

Side Content enables you to create widgets which have different content on different pages.

  1. Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory. If you're uploading it make sure to upload the top-level folder. Don't just upload all the php files and put them in /wp-content/plugins/.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the settings page (Options - Side Content) and create widgets by typing names for them into the box (one per line).
  4. You can optionally have side content on individual blog posts as well. Tick the checkbox if you want that option.
  5. If you want to use shortcodes in your widget, tick the checkbox if you want that option. (Not needed for NextGEN Gallery shortcodes: see the next step).
  6. If you want to use NextGen Gallery shortcodes in your widget, go to the Plugins panel and enable Side Content NextGEN Integration.
  7. Assign your widgets to positions in your sidebars (Design - Widgets). Note that until you give them content they won't appear anywhere.
  8. Edit a page (or post) for which you want one or more sidebar content widgets. The widget entry areas will be found in a sub panel headed "Side Content Widgets". In each area enter the HTML (including any heading) you wish to appear. The widget content will be saved along with the rest of the page or post.
