Support » Plugin: Content Aware Sidebars - Unlimited Widget Areas » silly problem? did work first, suddenly did stop.

  • Resolved aundc


    i installed the plugin, generated 2 new sidebars and set one to “manual” and second to “replace”, configured where they should appear, added two widgets, one for each sidebar and placed a php-code into the footer (where i like to have them shown). And all this went to function very well! Happy.

    Now, my problem: in case while checking some other plugin issues, i deactivated all plugins and reactivate them again. After that the sidebars aren’t shown up again ;-( I look for them and found one in trash, the other one did still remain as active. setting the first one to active again nothing in the end did bring back it all again – there are these sidebars never showing again.

    so i redecide all what i had done before with success and cme to one simple question: what exactly is the right php-code to place sidebars in the template? you should wonder, but i’d use this: <?php dynamic_sidebar(); ?> and that did work. But when i try to reactivate the function of sidebars and tried the offered code “Insert <?php display_ca_sidebar( $args ); ?> in a template ” given at “installation” it didn’t work too now …!

    one thing else: might it be problematic if i do use the plugin “Dynamic Sidebars” too? Well, i did try and deactivate this while trying – no better result. And it had work before.

    so i have no more ideas how to get it back working – someone does have one idea please?
    many thanks in advance,

    WP 3.8

  • ok, short addition: i changed the function.php: added some lines = registered a new sidebar and did delete this one pretty but in this case not necessary plugin-overhead. so sorry. but by this integrated way it does work well too.
    wish all best!

    It is great that you resolved the problem yourself, even if it was without the use of Content Aware Sidebars.

    I recommend to use <?php dynamic_sidebar(); ?> on a Main Sidebar and then let content aware sidebars replace/merge with it, but <?php display_ca_sidebar( $args ); ?> will function as well, as long as the sidebars have the setting “Handle: Manually”. Additionally, the function will only display a sidebar when its conditions are met.
