The widgetized sidebar allows us to embed pages inside other pages. This is especially useful for creating custom headers, footers or items you want on multiple pages without having to go in and edit each page manually. Like a pricing table etc.
We first create a new page and call it what we want to use it for. e.g Header, Footer etc.
Then add the content you want to display inside this page.I have added a text element with my logo shortcode and a navigation bar.
We set the page template to blank so that all that is loaded is what we create in this page.
Like so, by click Blank Page Template.
If you do not see this option, click Screen Options top right.
Make sure “Page Settings” is selected.
Next we save the page once we have added the elements we want inside it.
Now we go to Appearance > Widgets inside the WordPress Admin
Next we want to find the “Shortcode Widget” and drag it over to a sidebar…
I’ve dropped the shortcode widget inside “Footer Widget 2” it must have its own empty sidebar.If you need to create more sidebar navigate to ProStyler > Content Settings and scroll down to Add Sidebar.
Now this is the part we are interested in, We want to select the page we have just made from the dropdown list…
Like So… Now we have a custom page setup, we have now set it to use a sidebar the next step is to put it where we would like it to display.
Now create a new page, or edit a existing one if you want to embed it in that. You can place this anywhere you want.
Click “Insert Element”
Click “Widgetised Sidebar”
Enter a Title For Your Element. This will allow you to find items on your page later quickly.e.g Custom Header etc
Next we select the sidebar we would like to use from the drop down menu.
We added the shortcode widget to Footer Widget 2 and placed our page inside it.So we will select Footer Widget 2
Here you can adjust the margin. This is the space around your element.
You can animate any element you want, simply select a animation effect.
From the list…
Click “Save Page”
Click “View Page” To see your newly embed content in all its glory done with a widgetised sidebar.
That’s It, Anywhere we want content to display from the page we created we just use the Widgetised Sidebar and select the sidebar we have put the shortcode widget on.
