Support » Plugin: Dynamic Widgets » Controlling custom menu widget in sidebar

  • Resolved Roger N



    I am using the Brunelleschi theme together with this plugin and I am trying to control a custom menu shown in a widget in the sidebar using Dynamic Widgets. This works for all other widgets, but for some reason I can’t do this with the custom menu, which for some reason is shown on all pages no matter what I do.

    Any ideas about what might be wrong here?

    Thanks for a great plugin!

    I’m sorry, no, not really an idea. Obviously DW is working with the theme, otherwise nothing would have worked. Maybe the widget always shows within this theme?

    Hm… Well this is the code for the sidebar:

    <?php if(brunelleschi_option('sidebar') !== 'none'): ?>
    <div id="sidebar" class="widget-area <?php brunelleschi_sidebar_class(); ?>" role="complementary">
    <ul class="xoxo"><?php if ( ! dynamic_sidebar( 'primary-widget-area' ) ) : ?>
    <li id="search" class="widget-container widget_search">				<?php get_search_form(); ?></li>
    <li id="archives" class="widget-container"><h3 class="widget-title"><?php _e( 'Archives', 'brunelleschi' ); ?></h3>
    <ul><?php wp_get_archives( 'type=monthly' ); ?></ul></li>
    <li id="meta" class="widget-container"><h3 class="widget-title"><?php _e( 'Meta', 'brunelleschi' ); ?></h3><ul><?php wp_register(); ?><li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li><?php wp_meta(); ?></ul></li>
    <?php endif; // end primary widget area ?></ul>
    <!-- Unified into one widget area, as of 1.1.8 -->
    <?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'secondary-widget-area' ) ) : ?>
    <div class="widget-area" role="complementary">
    <ul class="xoxo"><?php dynamic_sidebar( 'secondary-widget-area' ); ?></ul></div><!-- #secondary .widget-area -->
    <?php endif; ?>
    <!-- #primary .widget-area -->
    <?php endif; ?>

    Anything you see here that might affect things?

    No, only a few hardcoded widgets when the sidebar becomes empty.

    Thanks! Not sure what is wrong here, but I found another plugin called Context Aware Sidebars, which lets me add a new widget area to the sidebar which can be controlled to show on certain categories or pages. This lets me add specific widgets into that area, including a custom menu.
