Support » Plugin: AMP for WP - Accelerated Mobile Pages » AMP above loop and AMP below loop widget areas not always showing?

  • Hi there,
    Thank you for your comprehensive plugin.

    I’m trying to customize the appearance of AMP pages. I see that you have the Page Builder (AMP) widget area for creating a single landing page that either one page can be over ridden by, or multiple pages over ridden by.

    However, I’m trying to come up with solutions for widgets to appear site-wide on all AMP pages or posts. I see the AMP above loop and AMP below loop widget areas, which I am guessing are meant for this purpose.

    I noticed though, that these widget areas are not appearing in all circumstances. For instance, they don’t show on AMP single post or page urls. This is problematic.

    I see them on the AMP front page.

    I don’t see them on the AMP main blog archive.

    Can you tell me where the loop starts and ends, in case this has to do with templating? And if so, how can we address this in our templates, without affecting our non-AMP pages?

    I also can’t see them when using the WordPress customizer for AMP, which is a bit inconvenient for styling on a single screen and organizing things. But I guess that’s a separate issue?

    I looked on your site, but all I can find regarding widgets is this page:

    Will you be adding documentation on this soon?

    Are these bugs?

    Hi @joycegrace,

    I am extremely sorry for the delay in getting back to you. This thread has been pushed to the back with the latest threads, due to which I was unable to check it. I just saw your email and came here.

    AMP above loop and AMP below loop are meant for Homepage only, and PageBuilder is only for Pages right now. But we are trying our best to improve it, so in next updates, we will try to add the page builder for specific pages/posts.

    I hope I answer your doubts, if not please let me know


    Thank you for replying.

    Can I make a suggestion? Using the word “Loop” is a bit misleading, no? I was confused by it. If possible, it would have saved so much time to just have a description in the widget area, below the title, to say it only works on the home page. Or to rename the title to “Homepage before loop” or something like that.

    Thanks for clarifying though.

    Also, is there a solution for getting site-wide content in the plugin’s pages?
