How to: Create Custom Sidebar in Pagelines Framework 2.0

Goal: Add a custom Sidebar to Home page’s “Content” (not Template) area so any Widget can be added.

WordPress framework: PageLines Framework 2.0.1

Solution: Copy one of the Sidebar sections and customize it to fit in the Content area of the Home page template. We’ll copy “Full Width Sidebar” and turn it into a new Sidebar called “Home Page Knowledge Center Sidebar.”

Copy: wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections/sb_fullwidth

To: wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/sections/

Open: wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/sections/sb_fullwidth/sections.php

CHANGE:


<?php
/*
Section: Full Width Sidebar
Author: PageLines
Author URI: http://www.pagelines.com
Description: Shows full width widgetized sidebar.
Class Name: FullWidthSidebar
Edition: pro
Workswith: templates, footer, morefoot
*/

class FullWidthSidebar extends PageLinesSection {

function section_persistent() {
$setup = pagelines_standard_sidebar($this->name, $this->settings['description']);
register_sidebar($setup);

}

function section_template() {
pagelines_draw_sidebar($this->id, $this->name);
}

}

TO:


<?php
/*
Section: Home Page Knowledge Center Sidebar
Author: PageLines + Reid Walley modification http://designparc.com/
Author URI: http://www.pagelines.com
Description: Home page Knowledge Center sidebar.
Class Name: HomePageKnowledgeCenterSidebar
Edition: pro
Workswith: main
*/

class HomePageKnowledgeCenterSidebar extends PageLinesSection {

function section_persistent() {
$setup = pagelines_standard_sidebar($this->name, $this->settings['description']);
register_sidebar($setup);

}

function section_template() {
pagelines_draw_sidebar($this->id, $this->name);
}

}

Finally: Go to Site admin > PageLines > Store > Sections > Child tab and click Refresh Store.

New Sidebar called Home Page Knowledge Center Sidebar is now available in Site admin > Appearance > Widgets section.
