    I wonder why my standard pages widget in the blog’s sidebar doesn’t look like the demo theme.

    Demo theme:

    Here at the top of the sidebar are pages listed with arrow and grey hover effect:


    My theme:

    Here in the blog, using the standard pages widget, the pages are listed as simple text and not with these arrows and hover effect like the demo theme as mentioned above:


    I have just added the standard pages widget to the sidebar:

    I’m not so familiar with PHP and CSS, so where have I to change what kind of code to get the same effect as in the demo theme?



    The strange thing is, I’ve created a complete fresh, new blog, activated CORONA, no plugins, imported the dummy data and take a look here:

    The first item with the list of pages appears because I have activated in the theme’s settings -> Layout & Settings -> Page Sidebar navigation the option “display sidebar navigation”.

    Then look at the item below, where I added the standard pages widget: no list, no arrows are shown.

    I don’t want to use this theme settings activated, because I want to create my own sidebars with sometimes sidebar shown, and sometimes at special pages not.

    So where can I set my CORONA displaying the pages listed in the sidebar like this:



    Hi colorit2,

    I believe you are just using the incorrect widget for that styling. Try making a menu with the Menus manager (under Appearances) then using the Custom Menu widget. Once you choose a menu to display, it will give you the look thats shown there.


    thanks! That’s completely new for me … never used such a kind of menu + widget and haven’t found anything about it in the theme’s docu.

    But I gave it a try and it seems to work in this way, not with standard WP page widgets or pages plugins.



    Glad that it works.

    Best regards,
