Support » Requests and Feedback » Moving a widget

  • Hello,

    I’m facing an issue. At the moment I’m using WordPress 2.7.1 with the plugin Mailpress installed. This contains a widget, which is used to subscribe to a mailinglist, as you might know.

    Now, what I want to achieve is to move the widget to the top of the website, to make it replace the search bar.

    Is this possible in any way? Better: is it possible to move the widgets in WordPress from the sidebar, at all?

    Greets.

    You’d need to widgetize the relevant template file.

    Any docs available for that?

    Only http://codex.wordpress.org/Widgetizing_Themes.

    It talks about sidebars but you can use exactly the same approach in any template file. For example, I’ve created a few home page templates that include this snippet:

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    
    <?php if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Homepage')) : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Then in functions.php, I have:

    if (function_exists('register_sidebar')) {
    	register_sidebar(array(
    		'name'=> 'Main',
    		'id' => 'main',
    		'before_widget' => '<div class="widget_box side">',
    		'after_widget' => '</div>',
    		'before_title' => '<h3>',
    		'after_title' => '</h3>',
    	));
    	register_sidebar(array(
    		'name'=> 'Homepage',
    		'id' => 'homepage',
    		'before_widget' => '<div class="widget_box">',
    		'after_widget' => '</div>',
    		'before_title' => '<h3>',
    		'after_title' => '</h3>',
    	));
    }

    Hope that helps.

    Cool, I’ll try to work it out. I’ll contact you if I can’t get it to work, if that’s OK with you.

    Thanks so far!

    Not sure if this is the place for this but I thought I might give it a whirl. I am using qtranslate in my theme but I want to take the flags in the theme and move them insided the header anysuggestions. thanks in advance
