      Could you steer me in the right direction to add a widget to each side of the slider section?

       

      thanks

        Take a look at your home.php file where the slider widget/content currently is, and duplicate it twice. Make sure the 2 new widgets that you duplicate are renamed so you don’t have more than 1 of the same function. Also remember to register you widget in your functions.php file.

          Ok, I have been working on this and I am missing something and can’t get it figured out.  This is what I have for my home.php, I have tried a few different things so I know this one is wrong.

           

          /**
          * Display widget content for “slider” and “welcome” sections.
          *
          */
          function adapt_home_loop_helper_top() {

          echo ‘<div>’;

          if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘box-1’ ) ) {
          echo ‘<div>’;
          dynamic_sidebar( ‘box-1’ );
          echo ‘</div><!– end .box-1 –>’;

          }

          if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘slider’ ) ) {
          echo ‘<div>’;
          dynamic_sidebar( ‘slider’ );
          echo ‘</div><!– end .slider –>’;

          }

          if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘box-2’ ) ) {
          echo ‘<div>’;
          dynamic_sidebar( ‘box-2’ );
          echo ‘</div><!– end .box-2 –>’;

          }

          echo ‘</div><!– end #slider-wrap –>’;

          }

          echo ‘<div>’;
          if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘welcome’ ) ) {
          echo ‘<div><div>’;
          dynamic_sidebar( ‘welcome’ );
          echo ‘</div><!– end .welcome-wrap –></div><!– end .welcome-inner –>’;
          }

          echo ‘</div><!– end #welcome-wrap –>’;

            OK, so I have done some more work on it, I can’t get the box-2 (right widget of the slider) to be in the right position)

             

            Thanks

              Looks like you’ll need to add a width to the slider (middle widget) and you would also need to set it to float left as well.
