Are there any shortcodes for the widgets that would allow you to place widgets like the news ticker or video player on pages (other than the main page) or posts?
I seem to be really having a hard time finding ways to get these widgets on other pages the way it is currently set up.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

There is no any options for making the other page and post like home page. You can’t add the widgets on the other pages.
If you need the widgets on the other pages you have to write custom code for it. We haven’t created shortcode for the widgets. If you are familiar with WordPress codes, please create a shortcode and use it.
If you need help, you can hire customizer too. http://www.acmethemes.com/customization-request/
Note: Child theme is recommended to customize theme.

Thank you! This should be standard with the theme actually, it seems odd that they would only be available on the main page. As it is, I’ve had to use a different plugin just to get the other pages to look reasonably consistent with the rest of the site, but it should have a full consistency throughout the whole site. It shouldn’t require a customization order to complete the theme. Much appreciated!April 3, 2016 at 2:36 pm #4704acmethemesKeymaster
Thank you so much for you suggestions. We also think same as you. But we are very sorry currently it is not available. We suggest you to use Page Builder by SiteOrigin ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/ ) , Although we have not tested our theme with it but we think it will work. In coming future, we are planning to make similar types of plugin or shortcodes for inner pages. But it will take some time to implement. Again sorry for your inconvenient.

Thank you very much! I appreciate it!
I just tried it out and it definitely looks like exactly what I have been looking for, but the site started timing out while testing it. I cannot say for sure if it was the plugin yet or not, but upon deactivating the plugin, the site is behaving normally again. So, it would seem that it [may] not be compatible. I may try it again at a later date/time to confirm, but not today, I have too much to do.
I sincerely appreciate the support!
