I am trying with no success to add a sidebar to Stretch Theme. It is absolutely the perfect solution that my client wants. EXCEPT for the lack of a sidebar. Any tips on registering a sidebar widget area to this theme would GREATLY appreciated
Where do you want to display the sidebar exactly?
Ultimately I would like a right primary sidebar widget area.
There’s a fair amount of work to make that happen as you need to create a new template file and also add CSS code as the default theme doesn’t include any code for the sidebar.
In theory couldn’t i duplicate the default page template, rename it, add a sidebar code ….say “newpagewithsidebar” upload it along side the other templates?. also add a “register sidebar” code to functions.php and then maybe copy some css for the sidebar from another similar theme and tweak it?
I actually tried this and i think i missed something.
Me too and should be finished next week.
Well please let me know if you manage to do it! That would be awesome to know. I am just a little over my head here.
Any news on this? I am looking to do the same thing. Please let me know if either of you had any success.
It can be done.
Would you happen to know if there are specific instructions posted anywhere?
None that i know of. It would require a fair amount of work i think.
