I’m having trouble deactivating the sidewide sidebar. Is there an easy way to do this that I’m missing?
Hi Stephen @stevedtj –
I think if you remove all the widgets from the sitewide sidebar, you have, effectively, deactivated it. I don’t think there is any other way, other than some custom CSS that would hide its content on certain pages, if you have a very special case that can’t be handled with the Appearance>>Widgets interface page options.
Here is some documentation we have about the CBOX widgets: https://commonsinabox.org/understanding-cbox-widgets It provides some info about how they work.
Hope this helps and definitely let us know if you still have questions.
Also – if you want to totally get rid of the sidebar – in CBOX Theme options, under “Sidebar>>Sidebar Size” you can choose the “Disable” option. Not sure if this is what you want to do.
Thanks so much for that info. I didn’t realize you could disable the sidebar in the sidebar sizing options.
Unfortunately it looks as though when I select full width theme on certain pages, such as the members directory, it just leaves a narrow white space where the sidebar used to live and then pushes the sidebar down all the way to the bottom of the page, underneath the content. This is with the sidebar disabled. Attached is a screenshot.
This doesn’t seem to happen on every full width page, just on some of the more complex buddypress pages.
My other issue is that since we have custom-made templates for some of our custom post type listing and search pages, it doesn’t seem to play nice with how cbox is laid out. Since we have to select our custom template from the template drop down, we can’t use the option full width.
Any thoughts? Thanks so much for your help! We love cbox.
Hi Stephen @stevedtj–
Thanks for letting us know that the sidebar size = “disable” is not working. I opened up a ticket on GitHub for the developers to take a look. You can track their progress here:
For the second issue, have you created a child theme or are you just adding several templates? Can you provide a screenshot to show how your page is rendering so we see the problems?
Thanks so much for letting the team know about the disable issue. As for my second issue, we’ve resolved it, so no worries.
