    Hi there, I want to build up some of my pages using blocks instead of a page builder.

    On one of these pages, I want to add widgets, which are not listed in the limited list of widgets.

    so I added the widgets by shortcode instead, but when I at the same time decided to not use sidebars, my widgets in the blocks also disappears.

    Widget not in any sidebars

    How do I fix this?

    I the customizer deselected sidebars globally, as many pages are custom links, or many pages do not respond to the Content (no sidebars) layout setting, the sidebar is still there with a

    Search archives

    as content.

    Why does pages not respond på this local layout setting?

    Regards
    Carsten

    Hi there,

    Is this the plugin you are using?
    https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/widget-shortcode/

    You might need to add the desired widget in a widget area that’s not used/displayed on the page to activate the shortcode.

    I don’t see a sidebar on the linked page. Have you figured out?

    Hi there, thanks for your answer, I’m using

    amr shortcode any widget

    but I guess it’s the same. I turned sidebar off, but from what I can see, sidebars are not available for Home Page anyway.

    You might need to add the desired widget in a widget area that’s not used/displayed on the page to activate the shortcode.

    This is actually a good idea, leaving the widgets in the sidebar, but deselect sidebar in the customizer keeps the shortcodes working. I hope it with shortcodes in elements, as well which I will test.

    Thanks
