I got the screenshot captured from another website and liked it. ( Sent in private info box ). I wanted to check with you if it’s possible to create the side bar blocks like in the screenshot.
1) The sidebar with icons (I will change it to my categories) and search bar.
2) The slider for posts in the second block in the screenshot.
Thanks.October 2, 2020 at 8:14 pm #1469923LeoStaffCustomer Support
It will definitely take some work to build something like that.
I would recommend using the block element with GenerateBlocks:
The grid blocks should help to build the two columns layout.
Then you can use either the headline or button block to insert the icon if you have SVG icons available:
And then for the post slider, you will need to find a plugin for that.
If you can link me to the example in question, I can take a look to see if they are using any plugins.October 3, 2020 at 1:56 am #1470115Jatin
Site link for checking out the plugin.October 3, 2020 at 6:07 am #1470378DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 10, 2020 at 4:31 am #1481731Jatin
Thanks David and Leo.October 10, 2020 at 9:17 am #1482224LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 22, 2020 at 8:16 am #1500111Jatin
I found the same on another site. There must be easy way to do it ?
Someone asked a question with their website name in Private box with Screenshot.
Can you please advise as its also a GeneratePress ThemeOctober 22, 2020 at 11:31 am #1500341LeoStaffCustomer Support
That is is using custom coding. I don’t think it’s easier than the method I suggested above.
If you right-click on the element, then you can see the HTML and CSS involved:

I am trying to create this layout using Generate Blocks but when i tried to create it and selected Right Sidebar this says “This will remove the current sidebar widgets for the selected sidebar. Your layout must have a sidebar set for this Element to show.”
I want to keep the other widgets and add this block into the sidebar. Is it possible ? I hope this make sense.October 25, 2020 at 9:30 am #1503670DavidStaffCustomer Support
For now the only thing you can do with the Block Element is to set it to Hook and set it to
generate_after_right_sidebar– so it can be either at the Top or the Bottom only.October 25, 2020 at 10:49 am #1503758Jatin
Thanks, but is it not possible to place it at my desired position. Let’s say after my first block of sidebar widget ?October 25, 2020 at 11:48 am #1503800LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 26, 2020 at 7:01 am #1504601Jatin
Hi guys, Not sure why but i am trying to create what has been suggested by Leo. You can see that in a screenshot link in private info box. The issue is when i am created it in editor the icons are looking aligned and when i look at the actual page the icons are not in order in second row. I am using GenerateBlocks 2 column layout for creating this.October 26, 2020 at 7:52 am #1504912DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 26, 2020 at 8:05 am #1504937Jatin
Thanks David. I want to create 2×3 (2 columns and 3 rows). I have divided the Grid to 50% layout only. Is there any padding option for adjustment to align these.
