Re: [webdesign-396] Co-working

This is a two step process.��

First, anywhere in your theme code (header.php, sidebar.php, index.php, footer.php etc) that you want a widget add the following code:

����<?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('YOUR SIDEBAR NAME') ): ?>

���� ��in here place any html or content that you want if there is no widget placed in that sidebar...

����<?php endif; ?>

Then in your functions.php you need the following code:

If ( function_exists('register_sidebar')) :
����register_sidebar( array(
���� ��'name' => 'YOUR SIDEBAR NAME'));
endif;

You can add other things to it as well like 'before_widget', 'after_widget' etc.��

note: YOUR SIDEBAR NAME is a custom name, ANY name of your choosing. It is just that they MUST MATCH in both places in the code.

More info can be found in the wordpress codex at:

and

Once you have done the code listed above in the right places, you will be able to go to the widgets area of the dashboard and you will see your new widget areas. Just slide any widget to that area and it will appear in the proper place in your code.��

Pam,
GoDaddy is a pain, but you should still be able to FTP to your WordPress directory to update your CSS file. (under wp-content>themes>yourtheme)

You mentioned child themes which makes me think you may be working with a theme framework such as Thesis or even Twenty-Ten. If that is the case, it won't be quite as simple as with a more vanilla theme. You may need to spend some time getting to know hooks and functions.php (the one in your theme file not in the main directory.) These types of themes rely on function calls far more than others. Thesis for example is very easy for end users but is more difficult for developers to customize.

If that is not the trouble you may find it helpful to peruse

and

which will help you understand more about the WordPress loop and the template hierarchy.

Good luck!

I used Godaddy. I know I know, but it was all I knew at the time when I started this site back in Sept. The client JUST got me the content, so I'm stuck with Godaddy. And, of course, They installed Wordpress for me. I'll never do that again.

I have co-working every day, just about seven days a week. I would need to know the time.

Also what host did you install WordPress on and how did you install it?

Kind Regards,

Aoirthoir,

I'm having a devil of a time with this wordpress site. I was under the impression that this was easier to customize than Joomla, but after going to Lynda.com for some tutorials���talking about child templates���this is NOT going well. I am a designer and was able to go into Joomla and customize the css with little problem. Do you have co-working tomorrow? If so, may I come there and work and ask you some questions about this site?

Thx, Pam Adams
