Advanced Features – Widget Control

You are here:

Advanced Features Addon allows you to control own widgets in two ways:

  • You can add any WP BASE shortcode in a widget, for example to accept booking throughout your website
  • You can control widgets to be displayed page by page, post by post. A particular widget can be displayed on every post/page, on particular posts/pages, or on every post/page except selected ones.

To use WP BASE shortcodes in widgets:

  • In WordPress admin side, visit Appearance → Widgets page
  • Find WP BASE Shortcode and drag, move and drop it to the desired widget area
  • Click Edit Content button. Text editor will open as popup
  • Include WP BASE shortcode(s) and other formatted text in the same manner as in post editor
  • Click Save and Close. WpB Shortcode readonly area should be updated.

Every WP BASE widget can be controlled to be displayed on every post/page or selected post/pages. Proceed as follows:

  • To display on every page, you don’t need to do anything special; this is the default
  • To display on every page, except for particular ones:
    • Visit posts/pages to exclude. Find meta box WP BASE Remove Widgets
    • Select widgets to be excluded in the pull down menu. To distinguish between instances of the same shortcode, you can get help of widget ID displayed in square brackets, e.g. [18]
    • Repeat above step for mobile devices
    • Save the post
  • To display only for particular pages:
    • Click Add Page by Page check box of the widget in Appearance → Widgets page
    • Visit post/page to exclude. Find meta box WP BASE Add Widgets
    • Select widget(s) to be excluded. To distinguish between instances of the same shortcode, you can get help of widget ID displayed in square brackets, e.g. [18]. This ID is the same as in Appearance → Widgets page
    • Repeat above step for mobile devices
    • Save the post

Use only WP BASE shortcodes inside WP BASE Shortcodes widgets. Other shortcodes may not run correctly.
