    Hey folks,

    More of a feature request, apologies if I’m posting this in the wrong place!

    Maybe I’m being lazy, I usually create a few widget areas in my child themes for clients with https://codex.wordpress.org/Widgetizing_Themes, but wondering if there is a future in GPP for custom widget areas?

    Would love to be able to flip a switch in GPP settings and, for example, enable a “Before Main Content” widget area, similar to where your hooks are – https://docs.generatepress.com/article/hooks-visual-guide/

    Thanks for listening! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Hi there,

    We’ve considered adding an option in Hooks to activate a widget area. However, you can imagine what a mess that could be if people overdid it..

    Instead, I would suggest just registering your widget area normally, then calling it inside the hook.

    Not exactly a flipped switch, but it’ll work for now ๐Ÿ™‚

    Appreciate the feedback!
