Support » Fixing WordPress » Can I add a widget more than once?

  • When I add a widget to a page template, the “Add” besides it disappears.

    I guess the idea is that you cannot add a widget more than once to a page. Make sense.

    But I have a number of page templates. How do I add the same widget to more than one page templates?

  • Yes I’m having the same problem I’ve been looking at various plugins but none totally fit the bill.

    did you get any further ?

    SURELY someone knows the answer to this one.

    Even a ‘you silly person’ that ones so easy, blar blar blar, I have knowhere else to ask.

    If anyone does does the time it would be appreciated.

    HNY!

    The Widgets Reloaded plugin takes care of this problem for most of the default widgets.

    I am not sure but I think no, you can not add the same widget twice, except the text widget….

    Greenshady you are my saviour, thanks for helping me out, thats exactly what I was after.

    Thank You

    The reason I was asking the plugin creator was wouldn’t there be an attribute for

  • like #sidebar within the plugin, which if I new the name I could add to my style sheet.

    i.e.

    #sidebar ul ul li{
    position: relative;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size:18px;
    border:0px red solid;
    font-family:Arial;
    margin: 0px 0px 0px 5px;
    padding:0px 0 0 0;
    background: url(‘images/menu_bg.jpg’) no-repeat 0px 4px;
    height: 44px;
    font-weight: bolder;
    width: 265px;
    }

    is what I need to use, the ‘Widgets Reloaded plugin’ picks up #sidebar but not the li part which gives the page navigation its background.

    therefore shouldn’t I be able to add

    #plugin-sidebar-name ul ul li{
    position: relative;
    list-style-type: none;
    background: url(‘images/menu_bg.jpg’) no-repeat 0px 4px;
    height: 44px;
    width: 265px;
    }

    to my style sheet and it would be picked up?

    Thanks Justin by the way for your help.

Sorry didn’t twig that it was your plugin – nice job.

The creator of the theme says I need the attribute the plugin uses, re: the question above. What information should THEY provide me?

The plugin solves the problem brilliantly but I just need it to look a certain way. I thought I was so close, I am learning that WP is really cool if you don’t want to actually change much.

I take it adding to the readme.css itsn’t going to help ?

Like I said on my blog, this is a question for your theme developer. All themes are different. How widgets are output depends on your theme.

The creator of the theme says I need the attribute the plugin uses

That alone tells me that you should use a different theme.

Please could you give me an example of a way you would do it on one of your themes. Seriously as with alot of themes it was probably born from another, so I’m guessing the ‘creator’ doesn’t have a clue.

To be honest the theme now looks unrecogniseable from the one I downloaded, I could add it to some sites as my own and I would know very little about its origins, widget use etc.

Just a kind of I’d call it this and put it there. Maybe then I could work it out.

ARGGGGGGGGGHh been trying to answer this problem for so long and now so close, I just need to make the sidebar navigation like a button with a img background and I’m done.

I can’t tell you how much I don’t want to start again with a new theme.

And then if I get this far and can’t find the answer again #!#&% !!

Alternatively could you suggest a 2 column theme with a standard layout and left-sidebar that would support thye plugin ?

Probably getting sick of me, and I’m sorry about that – like I said I just want to finish this site and frankly probably not use WP again, so not intuative at times Justin.

THANK YOU

I had the same problem what i did was duplicated the widget then reinstall it with a different name

“I am not sure but I think no, you can not add the same widget twice, except the text widget….”

If I add a text widget twice, the latter disappear when I click edit

Any answer about the text widget? I wanted to use it twice in the same sidebar.
