Support » Plugin: Side Matter » Side Matter not appearing in Genesis theme

  • I am new to wordpress and recently began using the genesis framework with a child theme for publishing a blog version of a book. I followed all the instructions, and included the side matter widget not only in the primary sidebar but also, for testing purposes, in other areas on the page just to see if it worked. I used the [ref] sidenote here [/ref] in a few places on the post and not only did I not see a numeral in the text itself, but no sidenote or any indication that side matter was working anywhere.

    does this plug-in work within the genesis framework? if not, are there alternatives out there that place footnotes in the sidebar (and not at the bottom)?

  • Hello there!

    I had sent two questions about this topic and for some reason hadn’t noticed your response to the OP until now.

    So, I am still having the same problem at my site. Tried deactivating FDFootnotes, as well as inserting primary and secondary sidebars in hopes that Side Matter would show up.

    I’ve contacted the theme developer (StudioPress) multiple times and consulted with a professional developer for support, but they all recommended that I speak with the plug-in developer.

    Be glad to take this offline if you don’t mind providing support for this, in which case I’ll be glad to provide consideration for your time/effort.


    I just installed this on a Genesis framework setup and can confirm that it does work normally without any extra steps when installing. I’ve tested on the Parallax Pro child theme–not sure if it behaves differently in other child themes.
