I have placed the Video widget in the right hand sidebar of the site, but the video does not display on the homepage.
However, when clicking through onto a post, the video in the sidebar widget works fine.
Is this a known problem, or is there a fix to make the video appear on the homepage sidebar as it does on a post sidebar?
Also, a separate question, is it possible to create custom sidebars to display on posts made under different categories, so each category can have its own unique sidebar?January 11, 2018 at 3:03 am #24050acmesupportsModerator
Thank you so much for using the support forum for the queries.
1. Can you please provide your site details so that we can check the issues on your site. We checked here in our demos and it is working fine.
2. Please check this Custom Sidebar Plugin to add custom sidebars for category pages.
Let us know if you have any further queries.
Thank youJanuary 11, 2018 at 2:57 pm #24081
Thanks for the feedback.
Here’s a link to the test site I’m working on. First the homepage (where the video in the sidebar doesn’t appear):
Here’s a link to a post within the site using the same sidebar (where the video appears normally):
I will try out the sidebar plug-in as suggested, thanks.January 12, 2018 at 3:20 am #24088
Can you select only Right Sidebar( not both Sidebar ) on Homepage.

I changed homepage to Right Sidebar only, and the video displayed correctly.
I also tried moving the video to the Left Sidebar and using Both Sidebars option, and it still displayed correctly in the Left Hand, even with Right Hand Sidebar active (this is how I’ve left the test site displaying for now, so you can see it).
Ideally I would still like to place the video in the right hand sidebar, with both sidebars displaying.
Is this any help in isolating the problem and achieving a fix?
I have turned off all but the most essential plug ins we use on the site, but none of that has made any difference.January 13, 2018 at 4:27 am #24162
We thought it was width issue before, but it working now on Left Sidebar, it is strange to work with left sidebar but not in right sidebar ( when selected both sidebar ).
Can you place the video on both sidebar( Left and Right ).

I have now put the video in both sidebars as requested.
It seems to be working ok in both!
But, if I remove it from the left sidebar again, it stops working in the right sidebar.January 17, 2018 at 7:41 am #24422
There is nothing wrong in the right sidebar, can you check by clearing cache.

The problem in the right sidebar reoccurs when the video in the left sidebar is removed:
It only works on the right when the video is on the left too. I only put it on the left because you asked me to, to test it out.January 17, 2018 at 3:42 pm #24434
I have decided to remove the left sidebar from the homepage altogether.
Now the video in the right (only) sidebar works ok.January 17, 2018 at 5:43 pm #24460
Ok thank you and good luck!
