Use block2 in bagslyd template
« on: August 30, 2015, 02:16:11 PM »
Can anyone explain how to use the block2 option with the bagslyd template.
What to do from the backend and how can i get content in there.
Does the template (or other files) must be modified.

Thanks in advance.

the old story....
go to wb-options -> advanced settings and check, that the point "Section Blocks" is activated - if not, set it to activate and save your settings

for the next step it give's many possible way's
i use the sidebar not on all pages, my solution is:
1. on the first page, where you planed to use the sidebar, go to Managed sections (top right corner in the first section of the backend/ page
2. add a new section to the first, type is, what you need in the sidebar (mostly: wysiwyg)
2. now you have a table with a list with your used sections on this page. every section has a select-field with the option (in bagslyd) Main or Sidebar. Set the new section to Sidebar and save the changes
4. put some content into this section and save this - now you can see this content in your sidebar

i use the sidebar on ca 30-40% with the same content (contact data etc), for this solution i need only one section in Block "Sidebar" to edit, for the other pages i use the droplet section-Picker with the ID from my first sidebar-Content and the pages without sidebar use the full-wide-screen


if you need the same content in the sidebar everywhere....
its also possible to build a "stand-alone"-page  (invisible) with the sidebar-content and a sectionpicker-code directly in the index.php of the template
or the globalBlocks-snippet from Ruud

if you need different content on every page in the sidebar....
see my points 1-4 and build new sections on every page

In advanced settings section blocks is set to on, but in the pagesettings there is no way to select the sidebar. The option is just not there.

If i try to set the template of the page to bagslyd it returns to "Standaardinstelling en".
Is this a reason why it is not working?
Any suggestions?

Maybe (or sure) i was wrong in my last post - sorry for that!!
i use screenshots now - please try again

the point in the general WB-settings -> advanced settings is called with "Manage Sections" and not with "Section Blocks"

here my settings


the next point
here a example


the names inside from the select field (here "Main") you found in the info.php from the template, what you use on this page. Remember: its possible to use different templates on every single page

another point - if you are the "Super Admin" (User-ID == 1) everything has to work in the backend - no permission problems
but if you not this "Super-Admin", its possible, that your usergroup has not enough permission's to manage section, but i think, than you dont have the link to the page "Manage Sections" here
