I click on customize because I want to create a left sidebar, but I don’t see any choices for that. It doesn’t seem to be in the same place that it was in when I was using the Pinboard theme. Where would I go to put in a sidebar?
Hi, currently this theme doesn’t have layout options, so in order to achieve want you want, you will have to edit CSS rules in style.css file.
From the perspective of usability, sidebar on the right is much more convenient for the users. We can see this all over the web – sites are moving sidebars to right and also top menus. But in case you still want to have it on the left, please read here:
The Random image gallery with pretty photo zoom WordPress plug-in which allows you to show random image anywhere in your posts, template files or using widgets. When you click the image it will create the pretty photo zoom effect. You can upload your images directly into the folder or you can set the existing image folder location; this plugin will automatically generate the perfect thumbnail image based on the mentioned width. This plugin is very useful to showcase images randomly to user.
Plugin configuration * Drag and drop the widget * Paste the php code to your php file * Short code for posts and pages
If you don’t want to show random image, then you would have to use sidebar.php copy in your child theme and insert the widget code manually and play with IF statement to filter by page or post ID which image to display.
Because side bar is outside of the WordPress loop you would need to search for the code that checks the ID of the main content in the loop.
