Client wants to add custom content to sidebar/other column
# November 28, 2012 at 9:02 am
No, I understand what you mean, they have been appended and prepended with jQuery. He likes it like that and prefers if they’re there, so I am just letting him do what he wants with it. I told him that navigation should really be at the top of the page but he prefers it where it is.# November 28, 2012 at 9:05 am
Sounds like he has no idea about UX.
So all you need for the main column (left) is the main editor. Nothing special.
For the right (sidebar), you might want to look at custom meta boxes to have input fields to post youtube videos (if needed), images (Attachments plugin) and a description textarea field.# November 28, 2012 at 9:07 am
I knew that one day I would have to come across setting up meta boxes, I’ve never looked into them really, the same with custom post types, never used them either :/
I will look into it now.
So, once it is done, when I am in the backend of wordpress editing the ‘About’ page, will i see the main large text editor and also 3 boxes to the right of it?# November 28, 2012 at 9:29 am
Ahhh, that’s exactly what I’m after, @chrisburton. I have just been looking at this;
Is this kind of thing I should be doing?# November 28, 2012 at 9:38 am
I use WPAlchemy but it’s not easy to implement. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-custom-fields might be something you’d like.# November 28, 2012 at 10:11 am
What a cool plugin!!! It’s pretty much perfect, thanks so much for you help! Take a look now, @chrisburton.
How do you get the attachments plugin to work btw? I have used the image function built in with the custom fields plugin and it just comes out as text

@watson90 Well go back to whatever you did before where it outputs normally. Then, in your theme file, try the following code instead of the one you showed me in codepen.Viewing 15 posts - 16 through 30 (of 39 total)
