Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Add Widgets to Center Column Front Page Only

Add Widgets to Center Column Front Page Only

I would like to add widgets to the front page only in the center column. Additionally, I would like to only have 2 blog posts on the front page. The widgets would go under the blog posts.

I have the adding widget to center column figured out, but it goes on all the pages not just the front page.

Can any one help me with the code and where to put it?

Try the plugin "Widget Logic"

I don't get it. There's no instructions for Widget Logic and I don't see anything about this 'plugin' in the admin panel outside of editing it. I don't see how that is going to answer my original question.

And the funny thing just happened. I found in the WordPress settings the abilities to limit the number of posts on the front page. Tested it out, and when I cut it to two it the software added a numbered navigation bar at the bottom, and duplicated the widget areas.

What's causing that? There really has to be a better way of doing this.

If you google "widget logic", the first result leads to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/

Download the plugin from there, install it at your site, then all widgets will have an extra field where you can put Wordpress conditional tags such as

is_single() AND in_category('Cheese')

to limit the widget to specific pages. The above example would limit the display of this particular widget to single pages of posts filed under the category "Cheese". See http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags for more Conditional Tags. You can group or combine these tags endlessly with AND and OR and brackets ( ... )

Widget Logic is cool but it does not help get widgets in the center column of a page.

It would be nice if there was a way to add a widget area to the content area of a page without editing the theme's code.

I agree with you Dan. Shouldn't have to write a ton of code to put a widget area in the center column.
