I am having an issue with tag pages and full width page templates.
The sidebar overlaps the content on my page.
I used the simple tags plugin to tag some Pages with it. These pages are using a page template which is full width (no sidebar). These display on tag pages with the blog sidebars overlapping the content on the page. Like this http://www.diywebco.com/tag/about-diy (I’ll leave this as an illustration only for a few days)
I was wondering if in a revised version of simple tags you might be able to add the functionality to this plugin to selectively turn off sidebar widgets (but not head and footer widgets) and only on tag pages. The best place to do this would be a check box, close to where you select the page template, (then you remember to use it for this) that says turn off sidebar widgets for this on tag pages.
Like custom everything that isn’t built into WordPress I could handle this by changing the tag page template to check if its a page. But then that would be overwritten by updates. Or perhaps you could solve this by adding a tag page template with the plugin, to check if its using a page template, then it would not be overwritten by wordpress updates. This isn’t ideal as people may be using different types of templates via the theme, and this is a themes solution.
Or I could choose not to tag full width pages, but then lose the ability to display them with other “related to this tag” content.
Which is the point! and one of the many reasons why your plugin is so wonderful. I use simple tags a lot as I use tags and categories to sort content, so many many thanks for making it easier to edit tags and categories and keep the lists clean and useful, and related, with your simple tags plugin.
I use the custom sidebars plugin. Perhaps as this plugin already has the “architecture” to change sidebars, he could add a turn off sidebar function for tag pages in his plugin. Just a thought…
