Support » Theme: Mesmerize » Extremely narrow sidebar problem

  • I’ll be using a right sidebar for all pages other than the home page. When I chose the template Page with Right Sidebar and added some widgets as placeholders, the sidebar/widget width is only about 1/2″ wide. Choosing Left Sidebar does the same thing. Any idea what could be causing this?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Today I set up a test directory in the client’s hosting, did a fresh install of WP, removed all plugins, installed and activated Mesmerize and the Mesmerize plugin. I’m just using the default front page header design. http://test.tbhs.org/ See any of the test pages, same narrow sidebar problem.

    I then set up a test directory on my own hosting, different hosting company. Fresh install of WP, removed all plugins, installed and activated Mesmerize and its plugin. For this one I chose the same header as my first site (preset2). https://tejadadesign.com/test Same narrow sidebar problem.

    BTW the “sidebar” widgets seem ok on the phone, just not on the computer.

    I guess I can’t edit my previous post any more. Sorry to take up so much of your time, but I really want to get to the bottom of this. I really like your theme and want to be able to stick with it.

    So today I also signed up to “testdrive” your theme and I’ve finally gotten in there. I was making a new page and see that my only choices for page templates are Default and Front Page template. In the test sites I’ve set up, my template options for new pages are Default, Front Page, Page with Right Sidebar and Page with Left Sidebar.

    Why the discrepancy? Is your theme not meant to use Sidebars?

    I have not yet updated the “testdrive” WP to 4.9.1 or the Companion plugin to 1.2.5 or Mesmerize to 1.1.3.

    i have contacted them a few times regarding all the crap code this is a GREAT theme but way too many glitches such as this. i hope they will fix this because i dont know how they can charge for a theme with all these issues.

    @xlaurenstephens are you having the same sidebar issue? Or are there other problems? I’ve considered purchasing the theme but want to be sure it’s “rock solid” before I do so.

    started busting my head on this issue last night… the sidebar works correctly on blogs, but it is useless on pages. I’ll probably work around it somehow.

    Hello,

    we are sorry for this issue we will look into them and we will fix into the next update.
    Meanwhile for the sidebar issue try to add the following code into the additional css field in customizer:

    
    .sidebar {
        display: block;
        width: 100%;
        max-width: 100%;
    }

    Regards,
    Iulian Palade
