Support » Networking WordPress » Global Widget area

  • Hello,

    I would like to designate a widget area that will display across the entire network for each child site that has a certain theme activated. I understand that with regular widget areas, for each child site, the widgets are reset, allowing each site to have their own set of widgets.

    I would like to be able to apply a widget from the super admin that will be applied to each sub site on the network.

    Please let me know how I can approach achieving this.

    Kind Regards,

    I know how to hard code a widget “area” but not an actual widget. Can I hard code a “text widget” into the theme? if so, any thoughts on how to approach this?

    @andrea_r Thanks for the reply, but I’m not understanding your suggestion. I need the content to be able to be administrated from inside the admin, not hard coded onto the theme sidebar.php,

    From the link you provided, I did not see how I can make a “dynamic
