[Resolved] How to change the order of the widgets ?

  • Hi !

    I would like to change the order of appearance of my widgets on the homepage.
    By default, I’ve 3 blocks (home widgets 1, 2 and 3), then my colophon Widget.

    I would like my colophon widget to appear before my home widgets. Is there an easy way to do it ?

    Thank you 🙂

  • Go to Appearance->Widgets from your WordPress dashboard, select the widgetized area you want to alter from the available ones on the right side of the screen, expand it with the little arrow if it’s not already expanded, then just drag and drop the widgets into the order you require.

    If you’re talking about the order that the widgetised areas themselves appear in the Appearance->Widgets screen, then you will need to edit your functions.php file and just change the order in which they are registered.

    As far as the widgets re-ordering yes that can most definitely be done from Widgets, however having colophon before the widgets would be slightly more difficult, because home widgets only appear on home page and colophon is site-wide and also added from footer.php

    <?php get_sidebar('colophon'); ?>

    Please don’t change anything in functions.php, unless this is a Child Theme with Child Theme’s functions.php.


    OKay, what I wanted was in fact to have colophon before the widgets and I managed to do it.

    Anyway, thx for your help !

    Wonderful 🙂

    Thanks for using Responsive!
