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

[SOLVED] How to Add New Center Column Widget Areas in Atahualpa 3.7.3

In a previous forum thread re Atahualpa 3.7.1 (http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...d+widget+areas), it was suggested that the ability to add new custom widget areas would be added back in new versions of Atahualpa.

But that ability still has not been added back in Version 3.7.3.

In the forum thread mentioned above, Juggledad advised that to add a new center column widget area in Atahualpa 3.7.1, "You need to edit index.php and put it there."

For Version 3.7.3, can you please advise specifically how and where to add new Center Column Above Loop, Center Column Loop, and Center Column Below Loop Widget Areas?

Can I still use the following code for the three respective new widget areas?

<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Center Column Above Loop Widget Area'); ?>

<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Center Column Loop widget area'); ?>


<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Center Column Below Loop widget area'); ?>

If so, specifically where do I place each of these code strings?

Many thanks for your help!

P.S. I tried to revert to Atahualpa 3.6.4 theme, but somehow when I do so, all the page titles and page content do not show up on the site. If easy to fix this, I would be happy to revert to Atahualpa 3.6.4!

We are using Wordpress 3.2.1 on this new site.

Many thanks again!

You have to edit index.php - put the
above the loop before line 7 which is
HTML Code:
<?php /* If there are any posts: */
put the 'in the loop' code after line 15 which is
HTML Code:
	<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $bfa_ata['postcount']++; ?>
put the 'after the loop' after line 35 which is
HTML Code:
	<?php endwhile; ?>
