    I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I hope someone can help me figure out what to do.

    I installed the plugin TLP Team (https://wordpress.org/plugins/tlp-team/) which offers a grid with teamm members with a link to an individual page with detail bio.
    The sidebars for this individual bio page are visible, but empty, even when in the customizer I apply the primary and secondary sidebar to “all contexts”.

    The author says:”To add sidebar need to add code <?php get_sidebar(); ?>” but I have no idea what he meanss and where to add this code.

  • Hi Marion. The theme already uses the get_sidebar() function. I see the plugin comes with a widget. Did you add that widget to one of your sidebars? Can you post a link to your site? Thanks.

    Hi bdbrown,
    I haven’t tried the widget, as I no need for it: I just want a grid with the shortcode on a page. The test fot this is on http://www.regieraadtechniek.nl/samenstelling-van-de-rtf/.

    Clikcing on the first item will show you the individual (test) bio http://www.regieraadtechniek.nl/leden-rtf/hetty-klavers/
    It has no sidebars, and I also noticed that the css is not inherited from the theme. This mest be adjusted in the plugin itself.

    Although I have Custom Sidebars (https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-sidebars/) installed, untill now I only used the default primary and secondary sidebars.

    Thanks very much for looking into this problem.

    It has no sidebars

    Does the plugin use a custom page template for the bio?

    In Customize > Content > Layout options for the main content > Single, do you have “3 Columns” selected?

    Hi bdbrown,
    I have the 3 columns selected as the standard lay-out.
    Opening the individual bio, it looks as if there should be sidebars, there are 2 grey areas beside the main content, but they are empty.

    I found that the plugin has a template on location Tlp-team/lib/template/single-team.php .

    Perhaps the single-team.php is not using the theme sidebars? The two grey areas you see are the padding the theme applies to set up the areas for the theme sidebars. I see the tlp-single-container content area but no sidebars. You might check with the plugin support forum and see if the developers can give you some idea of what else to check:

    Thank you for looking into this problem, I will contact the TLP-team again for a solution.
