Support » Plugin: Content Aware Sidebars - Unlimited Widget Areas » Sidebar Showing Up in Wrong Place

  • Resolved langelliott


    I created a custom sidebar and assigned it to “search results” (in Static Pages) and “show with all authors” (in Authors), assuming it would only show up in search results and author archives.

    Indeed it did show up in those two places, but it also is now the sidebar that shows up in my “blog archive,” which is not at all desirable.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    FYI, I’m using the Genesis Framework with the Dynamik Website Builder child theme.

    It sounds like you have a custom query on your blog page causing the plugin to “think” that the page in fact is another one. Can you somehow confirm/deny this?

    When you create a sidebar with said rules, and the Exposure is set to Singular & Archives, you tell the plugin to display the sidebar with:
    – search results
    – author archives
    – singulars written by any author

    If you set the Exposure to Archives only, the sidebar will not be displayed with search results (being a singular in WordPress), and if you set it to Singular, it will not be displayed with author archives (being an archive) – version 2 will not have this “limitation”. You can read more about the determination of combined contents here:

    I suggest that you create two different sidebars (one for search results and one for author archives) and tell me which of those sidebars are being displayed on your blog page.
