    Hi There,

    We have pages with identical names.

    When creating a sidebar for these pages the widgets placed in these sidebars will give problems.

    THe move from location. Do the identical names is causing a bug

    Als it is hard to see which page you are choosing to have another sidebar (since the nested structure is not visible when choosing a page).

    Please resolve this issue asap


    Guys this is a very urgent matter!

    Also changing the slug of the specific pages does not work.



    Hi hotspot,

    WordPress does not allow page names to be identical at the slug-name level. It causes huge issues with the database so we can’t do anything about that unless the slugs are (at the very least) different.

    Can you provide a link to the two pages and give specific details on what widgets are messing up and exactly how they should be behaving?

    Keep in mind, if you have been removing and adding widget areas around a lot this can cause issues with how wordpress recognizes what widgets are supposed to be in which areas. This is a wordpress bug and not something we can alter and usually doesn’t cause problems but it *can* if you are rapidly removing and adding widgets areas.




    So page names/structure like this will cause problems in WP?!:

    – doelgroep/products

    – banken/products

    – account/products


    It depends on what you have set as the slug(url name) if you’ve been manually changing them. If we can see the site/pages live we can give a bit more guidance for sure.

    Here is the codex entry on pages if you want the more offical word from WordPress on the ins and outs of pages and their recommended structure: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages




    Even when we gave the pages an unique slug the problem still appears!

    We are in a semi live environment so we cannot have this problem for to long.

    Also the urls cannot go public.

    please give me your e-mailadress so i can send you the urls.


    You can send the information to my email at DevinVinson (at) gmail.com. Make sure to include a link to this topic so that my spam filter doesn’t grab it :)


    Hi Devin,

    Thanks, i just sent you an email.

    Looking forward to a solution.


    I sent a response a bit ago which I think might resolve the issue.




    Hi Devin,

    Thansk for you help, too bad we cannot fix/solve the issue.

    Hope Kriesi will be able to fix it in the next update.



    I’ll close this thread for now. Kriesi can reopen it anytime.

    Best regards,
