Custom Sidebars
[resolved] Criteria for custom sidebars are not shown in the popup window (17 posts)

    With version 2.0.7 of Custom Sidebars I can't define where to show my custom sidebar. As you can see in the screenshot, the options for single entries and for archives are not shown; so, they can't not be selected.

    Using Chrome Console, I've seen that the HTML code for those options exists, but it is not shown and can not be selected.

    The last version which works in my site is 2.0.3.

    I've changed my theme to Twenty Fourteen, but Custom Sidebars doesn't work. I've algo enabled WP debug, but there's no warning message related to the plugin.

    Any idea?

    Hi @Eduardo,

    I hope you're well today! :)

    Sorry if you've had any trouble with that. It's a strange one for sure, seems like something is somehow hiding the divs with the cs-half class.

    I can't replicate that locally though, it seems like you could have something adding styling to your admin area that would hide those elements.

    Could I ask for you to try deactivating all other plugins and letting us know how it works with that?

    Thanks,
    David

    I have deactivated all plugins (except Akismet) and the situation is the same than before. With WP debug activated in wp-config.php, there's no error or conflict warning.

    It's quite strange, because when the popup window starts to load, the "hidden" options are shown for an instant.

    Hi @Eduardo,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Make sure you have selected the option "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" for at least one sidebar as displayed in the following screenshot.

    Thanks for your help, Vinod.

    I have selected the option "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" as indicated, but the problem persists.

    Anyway, I'll wait for next releases.

    Hi @Eduardo,

    In the meanwhile you can also use the previous stable release of the plugin that is version 1.6 by downloading it from the following page.

    I am using Custom Sidebars in two differents sites: the first one is only for tests; so, I can wait for next releases. In the second one, my personal blog, I haven't updated Custom Sidebars to version 2.0.7. The last version which works fine is 2.0.3.

    Hello, I have the same identical issue. Options are hidden and I cannot select them. I'm using WP 3.9.1 with Architecto 1.0 theme.

    I'm having the same problem, WP 3.9.1 and CS 2.0.7. I can't select any options for the custom sidebars. Also, after I select the option "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" it appears checked, but when I refresh the page it's always unchecked, no matter how many CS options I save.

    Hey there everyone, the plugin's been updated to fix that issue with the "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" setting not saving.

    Could you please update and let us know how that works for you?

    Looking forward to ensuring that's all sorted for ya! :)

    Cheers,
    David

    Version 2.8 works fine, but there's something weird with Custom Sidebars (or WordPress, or other plugins), because new version has been able to save the value of "Allow this sidebar to be replaced" checkbox only after clicking Ctrl+F5 in Google Chrome.

    After forcing upgrade of /wp-admin/widgets.php page, plugin options are displayed properly, and so they can be selected and saved. A CSS issue, maybe?

    I suggest to add this trick to Custom Sidebars FAQ, or investigate the issue.

    Anyway, thanks for your help, David and WPMU DEV Support Staff.

    Hi @Eduardo,

    Could you please try using our latest Custom Sidebars released version 2.0.9 which contains many fixes?

    Regards,

    Thanks for the update, @Vinod.

    Everything seems to work fine in version 2.0.9, except localization. In spite of having updated the custom-sidebars-es_ES.mo file (spanish translation) in /lang subdirectory, the plugin is not translated to spanish.

    There's another thread in these forums about this issue: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/translation-via-localisation-issues. In his response, Jack Kitterhing says: "Just wanted to let you know, that the update we released today, fixes this issue."; however, version 2.0.9 doesn't solve the problem.

    In version 2.0.9.6, everything seems to work fine, including translations.

    Thanks for your help, @David.
