Create a sidebar for a page

Gridgets work by allowing you to create sidebars on individual pages. You can add widgets to these sidebars, just like standard sidebars, and the widgets will display above the page content. You can define styles for the sidebars, like background color and images, and define a layout so that the widgets you add display in columns.

To add a sidebar to a page, just edit the page as normal. Under the main content editor, you’ll find a new custom field section entitled ‘Widget Areas Before Content’.

add-widget-area

Enter a name for your new widget area and click ‘Add Widget Area’. This will register a new widget area on your site that will only display on one page.

You can add as many widget areas to your page as you like.

Adding widgets to the widget area

When you’ve added your widget area, you can view the page then click on the ‘Customizer’ button in the admin bar to open the Customizer panel and preview. Click on Widgets and you’ll see your new widget area.
