    I did some searching to learn about enfolds sidebars and I can’t find a solution for the website I have taken over to update.

    The site has multiple sidebars on different pages but when I go into Appearance/Widgets I only see Display Everywhere, Sidebar Blog, Sidebar Pages, Footer-column1 though Footer- Column 5. All of these are empty except Sidebar Pages, which has Text Office.

    The About page has the “Sidebar Pages” selected but the page has extra links at the top of the sidebar that are not in the widget. FA@’s has the “Sidebar Pages” selected and only shows the Office information in the sidebar. Pricing has the “Default Sidebars” selected and Office is displayed but above it shows links to Features, Pricing, Request a Demo, and Sign up Today.

    How is the information above the selected sidebar different from other pages?

    Hey Actionrev,

    Thank you for the inquiry.

    It is possible that Layout > Sidebar Setting of the pages have been set manually, or that a specific widget area has been selected for each page. Please edit the page and check the value of the Layout > Sidebar Settings.

    Best regards,

    I checked that in the past.

    For example, About and FAQ’s, are set to Sidebar Settings:Right Sidebar, Sidebar Setting:Sidebar Pages, Title Bar Settings:Default Layout-set in Enfold, Header Visibility and transparency:No transparency, but About shows links above the “Sidebar Pages”: text: Office sidebar.

    Same thing is going on with the pages, Benefits and Pricing. Sidebar Settings:Right Sidebar, Sidebar Setting:Default Sidebars, Title Bar Settings:Default Layout-set in Enfold, Header Visibility and transparency:No transparency, but Pricing shows links above the “Default Sidebars.” Default Sidebars is also displaying Text:Office but I’m not sure how to edit the Default Sidebars.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the info.

    Is the Sidebar Pages widget area empty? The links above the widgets are from the default Page Sidebar navigation, which can be disabled from the Enfold > Sidebar Settings panel.

    Best regards,

    Enfold>SidebarSettings>Page Sidebar Navigation is on. Sidebar Pages has one entry with the Title:Office that displays address and contact info.

    I was unaware of this setting and it explains why FAQ’s, Pricing, Features, etc look the way they do but it doesn’t explain why the About page has extra links in the Sidebar above SidebarPages:Office.

    Hi,

    has extra links in the Sidebar above SidebarPages:Office.

    Those are probably the default sidebar widgets or the dummy widgets. To disable it, please add this snippet in the function.php file.

    function avf_remove_default_sidebars( $show ) 
    {
    	return false;
    }
    add_filter( 'avf_show_default_sidebars', 'avf_remove_default_sidebars', 10, 1);
    

    Best regards,

    Probably? Did you look at the About page above the Sidebar? Above the Sidebar are multiple links that are not on any other page. The links are pages the previous designer created. Please take a look at the about page and click on the links. I would like to know how these are being placed above the sidebar. Thank you.

    Hi,

    The default Page Sidebar navigation should not display when the assigned widget area is not empty, so it is quite odd that it shows in the About page.

    Do you need the default Page Sidebar navigation? The links in the About page get removed when we disable the Page Sidebar navigation option.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Best regards,

    I could turn off the default Page Sidebar Navigation but then I assume I would have to manually create widgets for a sidebar assigned to specific pages. That also wouldn’t explain why those links showed up only on the About page. Any ideas where those links could be coming from?

    Hi,

    Faqs, About, Benefits and Pricing have the same content in sidebar on my end at the moment however if the links you mentioned were something like this – https://imgur.com/a/O3fz9gr, those are default widgets that is displayed when there is no widget placed inside “Displayed Everywhere” widget area.

    Code Ismael shared disables default widgets. When you add any widget to Displayed Everywhere widget area, it displays your widgets and disables default widgets automatically.

    I assume I would have to manually create widgets for a sidebar assigned to specific pages.

    That is correct but you could also use a plugin such as this one – https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/ and display widgets conditionally, e.g. “display X widget if page is Y” :)

    “Faqs, About, Benefits and Pricing have the same content in sidebar on my end at the moment however if the links you mentioned were something like this – https://imgur.com/a/O3fz9gr,”

    No, the links were not pages that were copied from the Main Menu. They were unique pages I couldn’t find linked anywhere else on the site. They were only on the About page, above the Sidebar, and were removed when Ismael turned off Page Sidebar Navigation in Enfold>SidebarSettings. I turned it back on so you could see. An example of the links are below and a link to the About page. The code Ismael shared can’t be found in the functions.php file.

    Hi,

    Thanks for clarification, I now understand the confusion.

    That is indeed Page Sidebar navigation that displays submenu items on the top of sidebar.
    #4063 (no title) is the page I linked in private content field. It displays “#4063 (no title)” because your page has no title. It is displayed there because it is set as a child page of “about” page – https://imgur.com/a/YRQ5Ndx as you can also understand from the slug.

    You can disable Page Sidebar navigation or unset About as parent page for those subpages :)

    Best regards,
