How do I create and edit the sidebar on my Elevate site?

The sidebar layout you set here will be used on every page. Additional sidebar widgets can be added on setup of specific pages. The layout is a rough approximation of how your content will be displayed on the page.

  1. From the Administrative control panel, click on the “Content Management” Tab and select “Sidebar” from the drop down menu.
  2. Click on “Add New Widget”. This will induce a popup window where you will enter the specifications of this widget.
  3. Use the drop down menu next to “Size” to determine how many rows the widget will take up. (keep in mind the system will auto size the widget if necessary so what you see on this page isn’t a direct representation of what will be displayed on the user end). You may select up to 12 rows. The maximum number of columns is set to one and cannot be changed.
  4. Next input the desired name of your widget in the “Name” text box.
  5. If you wish to display the name and/or border of your widget to the users, you may select the checkboxes to the LEFT of either “Display Name” or “Display Border”
  6. You may hide this sidebar widget on either desktop or mobile by selecting “Hide on Desktop” or “Hide on Mobile” from the drop down menu. (The default setting for this is Display on Desktop and Mobile)
  7. Select the type of widget you wish to put in the sidebar by selecting an option from the “Type” drop down menu. (See What page widget types are available to build my page(s)?)


If elevate navigation is in the top horizontal menu, a sidebar is not activated.
