Within the framework, there are six default widget area “locations” — By default these are simply WordPress-registered widget areas, but when combined with the Theme Blvd Widget Areas plugin, you’ll then see why we’re referring to them as locations. With this plugin, you can create custom widget areas that you can then insert into these various locations for specific pages.
|Ads Above Header||ad_above_header||collapsible|
|Ads Above Content||ad_above_content||collapsible|
|Ads Below Content||ad_below_content||collapsible|
|Ads Below Footer||ad_below_footer||collapsible|
Default Locations Map
For a visual representation, you can match the locations from the above table to the screenshot below.
Fixed vs Collapsible
In the table above, you may have noticed that all widget area locations are either fixed or collapsible.
Fixed sidebar locations always display based on the current sidebar layout. — For example, if a Sidebar Right layout is selected for the current page, the right sidebar will always display and the left sidebar will never display. And if a Double Left Sidebars layout were selected, both the left and right sidebars will always display, but both to the left of the content area.
Alternatively, collapsible widget area locations will only show if they contain widgets. Also, they do not correspond to the sidebar layout, in any way; they’re always in the same spot, throughout your website.
