I’m really stuck on this: Is there some way I can make a widget (or hard-coded sidebar element) appear both in a specific category’s sidebar AND in posts belonging to that category? I never assign more than one category to a post, so at least that should not be any problem.
I can use Widget logic to make eg. a text widget appear in just one category, but then it won’t show up in the posts (assigned to that category). Some line of code I can use? Ideas?
Grateful for any hints!
I’ve asked about this seemingly impossible thing several times during the last weeks, and now Alan gave me an elegant solution.
Basically install his Widget Logic plugin which gives you a php code field in each of your widgets.
Here you insert the code that makes this widget appear where you like it – in my case: is_category('x') || (is_single() && in_category('x'))
where x is the category’s ID number.
I’m using it to set up a big Italy site using WP as a CMS. The sidebars on different pages has to show relevant info for each Italian region. Each of the regions again are defined with its own category so I can post to each of them – and they’re spread out on different Pages using a redirect plugin.
Soon to be seen on dolcevita.no (now testing on dolcevita.no/wp) And a big thanks to Alan! Kjetil
