Adding extra widgets to sidebar? Noob question…

  • Hey Folks,

    John here, WordPress newb, steadily ascending the WP learning curve!!

    I’m using the Tailian theme at http://www.theBMWF650.com. I created a custom Secondary Navigation menu that I would like to add to the left sidebar without removing the stuff i already have there (categories, Rss feeds).

    When I add the Custom Menu widget to the left sidebar, my other sidebar items disappear.

    Do I need to edit sidebar.php to make this work, and if so, how would i learn about coding that?

    Many thanks!!

    John

  • Since that is a paid theme, I would consult with the theme’s developer(s) to see if it’s an issue with theme, which is what it sounds like. Or try reorganizing the widgets.

    I figured it out.

    I added template tag code to sidebar.php:

    <span class="gat_widget"> <?php _e('Important Resources'); ?></span>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'container_class' => 'menu-header', 'theme_location' => 'secondary' ) ); ?>
    </ul>

    Man, I just dig WordPress. And I am so-not a php coder!!

    Thanks for the response!
