    I’m sorry if this is a duplicate. I’ve searched for a week before deciding to give in and post this.

    I’m trying to use the custom sidebar feature, and I can not seem to get it working. I’ve been troubleshooting a bit, and found that if a post has more than one category, no custom sidebar widgets show up, but if I remove all but one category, it pops up.

    Is there a way around that? Most of my posts have at least 2 categories, and I need them to show up in both.

    My site is http://mommybrainreports.com and an example would be the category of WalmartMoms .. If I click on any post in there, I also have a secondary category of Weight Loss Journey for many of them…

    Any help that you can provide would be most appreciated.

    Thanks so much! So glad I bought this theme! I’ve received many compliments!


    I think this is a limitation of Kriesis framework/widget logic. As far as I can see the posts which are part of two or more categories display the widgets of the first category area only. You can use Widget logic plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/ to add more widgets though.


    Hmm.. I added widgetlogic, but I can’t figure this thing out. I don’t need it to show widgets from more than one category, I just can’t get it to show any. First category would be perfect if I can get it show even that. I have it set to the one sidebar rather than the 2 small ones… does that made a difference?



    ok… new question. I went back and messed around with the sidebars.

    I can get the custom sidebars to show up in 2 out of 4 of the categories I want them in..

    It shows up here:


    and here:


    but not here:


    or here:


    They were all created at the same time, and in the same manner… Any help you can give would be appreciated,



    Which widget areas did you use for the widgets? Try to place them in the “Displayed Everywhere” widget area…


    Ok.. putting them in the “Displayed Everywhere” widget made it appear in the walmartmoms category, but the product-reviews is still blank… :(

    and now for some reason, my widgets are getting cut off on even my home page. Is there a way to lengthen my sidebar and make it taller?


    oh phooey… I figured out the display everywhere widget & widgetlogic… thank you…

    But.. I’m still getting maybe too tall for my sidebar? Is there a way to extend it past the top 3 posts? I’d like it to extend all the way to the footer if possible…



    No I’m sorry this is not possible – the height is auto generated and depends on the amount of widgets which are used.


    It’s dependent on the number of visible posts, or widgets? I have more widgets than are showing…



    oh.. goodness.. I got it working.. figured out how to add more posts, etc… Thank you so much for all of your help. I love this theme!!!


    Glad that you found the solution :)
