Latest News: I have updated the documentation below.

You will notice that this settings is much smaller and has less to configure than the settings for Sidebar 1. That is because the Sidebar 1 is the most common sidebar used in websites.

The following image shows you what sidebar you will control with these settings.

Step 1 ) Go to Appearance -> Suffusion Options -> Sidebars -> Wide Sidebar (Top) to set up the following option. See image below.


Step 2 ) The following Style of wide sidebar (Top) allows you to select from the following options.

  • Show widgets in individual boxes
  • Flatten the sidebar (no boxes for individual widgets)
  • Tabbed Sidebar (Needs ALL your widgets in this sidebar to have a title! Some third party widgets don’t use the standard WP way of writing widgets. They will not work!)
