Sidebars / Widgets

Sidebars

With "SmartOn" theme you can easily create unlimited sidebars and assign them to unlimited pages. To start working with the sidebars, go to SmartOn => General settings => Sidebars in your admin panel. The interface is illustrated in Screenshot 27.

Sidebar position

Choose the sidebar position for preset sidebars (Archives, Portfolio single and blog single post).

Add sidebar

Create a new sidebar which can be later assigned to any page. Check the Setting the pages section of the documentation for more information on how to assign sidebars to your pages.

Custom sidebars

Sidebars should be preset on some pages like Archives, Portfolio single and blog single posts. You can achieve that with the help of this block.
