Let us tell you about some sidebars
required+ Foundation offers some widget areas (or sidebars) to add widgets. It’s an easy way to further customize your site without coding. By default we have four widget areas, let’s have a look at them.
The Main Sidebar is the default sidebar, included on most pages like the blog, page templates with sidebars and some more. There is nothing special about it. You usually want to use it for category widgets and the like.
Footer Area One-Three
We included an optional sidebar template in the footer area of the page. It uses three widget areas and all of them are optional. By default there are no widgets and therefore you don’t see the custom footer sidebar. Let us walk through how they work:
Widgets in Footer Area One
If you only add widgets to Footer Area One the widgets size will stretch all over the place and create it’s own 12 column row in the grid:
Widgets in Footer Area One and Footer Area Two
Widgets in Footer Area One and Footer Area Three
Widgets in Footer Area Two and Footer Area Three
Widgets in all the Footer Areas
Shortcodes take flexible content and functionality one step further and allow you to create columns, galleries and much more in your visual editor. We created them as optional plugins, learn more.
