    Good morning,

    I want to modify the Dispatch Demo. I have a widget created by me (timeline posts in the right sidebar) and for my last theme I put it in a child-theme and registrated it in the functions.php. But I don’t know how to do it in GeneratedPress?

    And as I see the picture of a post has the same width like the posttext and the sidebar together. How can I modify it to get the picture in the same width as the text, so that they are both parallel to the sidebar.

    Here is my old design. This is what I want: old design

    Hi there,

    I want to modify the Dispatch Demo. I have a widget created by me (timeline posts in the right sidebar) and for my last theme I put it in a child-theme and registrated it in the functions.php. But I don’t know how to do it in GeneratedPress?

    You should be able to reuse the PHP code you made from the previous theme you’ve used and place it on a child theme’s functions.php. It should work the same unless you’ve used theme specific hooks.

    And as I see the picture of a post has the same width like the posttext and the sidebar together. How can I modify it to get the picture in the same width as the text, so that they are both parallel to the sidebar.

    Can you link us to the site in question so we could check for the best approach to achieve this? You can use the private information text field to provide the details.

    I have a second question: Do you know how to add code in the sidebar but for every category a different snippet? I use hooks but it works only in the posts. If I go to my category “xyzcat” it’s not working. But If I call one of the articles “xyzcat/article” it works. Or do I have to ad Archives too?

    It seems that some things are not really working. For example I used the customizer for my page and set padding for container. And it works for every page and post instead of the archives, why? If I go to archives like “categoryX” and set them, it works, put after exiting Customizer it resets to default values.

    If your code is built to work with any theme, then all you should have to do is plug it into the child theme and include any necessary CSS.

    If you want to include different PHP in the sidebar depending on conditions, our Hook Element is likely your best bet: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/hooks-element-overview/

    Hi Tom,
    it was theme specific because I get errors. DO you think I can also programm a widget with element hooks? Or is it only possible with function.php?

    Hi there,

    if you have a non-theme specific version of that function, then you can simply make the function call back in the Hook Element. You can of course write the function directly inside the hook as well but personally a large function is best used as a callback.

    Do you have an example?

    As you can see on my image at the top of the post I have at the right side a timeline widget. But it was theme specific … 🙁

    Do you have an example of the code that isn’t working?

    Hi,

    of_get_option() most likely is a custom theme function from your previous theme.

    It seems to be from this:
    https://wptheming.com/options-framework-plugin/

    Not exactly sure what the function does. Consider writing one on your own for this particular purpose. 😀
