Hello. I just set up a new site and installed the Swift theme. Everything is fine except that the sidebars don’t show up. I’ve tried various things like changing the layout options. I have a text widget with nothing but text in it in Narrow SB Left and a Calender widget in Wide SB Top.
This site is obviously under development…
i checked the html code in the browser, and the html of the sidebar was there.
it seem to be a ‘one in a million chance’ conflict with shadowbox:
this style from /wp-content/plugins/cool-video-gallery/cvg-player/shadowbox.css:
<div id="sb-container">from sidebar.php:
</div><!--/right container--> <div id="sb-container"> <div class="wide-sidebar">
Awesome thanks. I deleted the plugin and that fixed it. I was planning to replace that plugin anyway because so far every video I have tried to upload has failed.
Hi Jonas Grumby,
May I Know what sort of issue you came across with video playing.
Apparently there is a DIV ID #sb-container in both the plugin and the theme. As far as the uploads failing, I don’t know. I am now using a different plugin that lets you upload via FTP and specify the path.
I just tried this and I’m able to play the your video file from
http://johnnasta.com/cdb/wp-content/uploads/video/ExodusTrailer.mp4with this plugin perfectly.
You can use the
Scan Gallery Folderfrom
Gallery Detailspage after uploading via FTP.
About the DIV ID #sb-container, that comes along with the Shadowbox package. I guess then only either one will work.
This is happening again. Here is the live URL…
Sorry I didn’t follow the thread from the beginning. But it appears as thought there is an image trying to be displayed with an incorrect source url.
Is the plugin activated now? I guess not. So this is no longer the plugin issue i hope.
And with the image issue the above reply answers it 🙂
Hi, Im having the same issue. I have WP 3.14 and using Swift theme. After I installed the plugin the sidebar disappeared. According to alchymyth in the post above, there is a conflict with shadowbox:
Is there any possible way to fix this Praveen R?
any suggestions anyone?
Hi @danmont. It seems to me that you could edit the video plugin to replace all occurrences of sb-container (in the css & php files) with your own unique ID. Then you would not have the conflict. A good editing program will let you do “advanced search & replace” so you could do all of the files simultaneously and then upload via FTP. Of course make a backup first. HTH.
Hello, I am having the same problem, suddenly no sidebar, except I’m not using that plugin. The site, in development, is here: http://www.mossley-council.co.uk/dev/
I’m using a righthand sidebar layout with everything in Wide SB Top. The widgets sitting there are events manager, recent posts and links. These were working fine a few days ago.
Can anyone advise?
