    I’m relatively new with wordpress so it is perfectly possible that I am approaching this problem wrong. Here is my issue:

    1. While what I really want is a sidebar, I have come to the conclusion that I can not use a sidebar widget because some of the filtering and controls aren;t available in the sidebar. (for example, I want to filter upcoming events by a category or I want to use standard enform controls for some for some of the sidebar content)

    2. Because of #1, I then simulate a sidebar by selecting a 3/4 – 1/4 layout and use the 1/4 area as what would normally be my sidebar.

    Which leads to my issue that I would like to duplicate the capability that comes in standard sidebar when I have “page sidebar navigation” turned on and the menu representing the page hierarchy is displayed. I don’t see a way to have that show up in a main content area. Is there a way I can accomplish this?


    Hey Mike!

    Thank you for using Enfold.

    You can create a custom shortcode. Add this in the functions.php file:

    function foobar_func( $atts ){
    	return avia_sidebar_menu($echo = true);
    add_shortcode( 'foobar', 'foobar_func' );

    Go to the widgets panel, add a text widget. Place the [foobar] shortcode.

    Best regards,
