  • 2 Sidebars on the HomePage only

    Hi,

    I would like to have 2 sidebars on my home page and only the left sidebar on the remaining pages.

    As far as I can see there are 2 areas of code that need changing in the outer layout

    Firstly the code that controls the width of the content area:

    HTML Code:
       <div class="content-area<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27Two%20Sidebars%27" > content-minus-two</actinic:block><actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27One%20Sidebar%27" > content-minus-one</actinic:block>">
    The second is populating the sidebar:

    HTML Code:
       <actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%21%3d%20%22One%20Sidebar%22" >
                    <div id="right-sidebar">
                    <actinic:variable value="Regular Right Sidebar" name="SideBar" />
                </div>
                </actinic:block>
    There is a variable: "IsBrochureHomePage" to indicate whether you have the right page to display the 2 sidebars.

    Adding the sidebar to the home page seems straightforward:

    HTML Code:
              <actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22IsBrochureHomePage%22%20%2f%3e" >
                    <div id="right-sidebar">
                    <actinic:variable value="Regular Right Sidebar" name="SideBar" />
                </div>
                </actinic:block>
    However I am struggling to get the page widths correct.

    duplicating the content area code, swapping the minus one and minus two and using 2 block-if (IsBrochureHomePage and IsBrochureHomePage != "TRUE") doesn't work:

    HTML Code:
      <actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22IsBrochureHomePage%22%20%2f%3e" >
    
     <div class="content-area<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27Two%20Sidebars%27" > content-minus-one</actinic:block><actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27One%20Sidebar%27" > content-minus-two</actinic:block>">  
    
    </actinic:block>
    
    <actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22IsBrochureHomePage%22%20%2f%3e%20%21%3d%20%22TRUE%22" >
    
     <div class="content-area<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27Two%20Sidebars%27" > content-minus-two</actinic:block><actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22Wiz3%5fSidebars%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%27One%20Sidebar%27" > content-minus-one</actinic:block>">  
    
    </actinic:block>
    I was hoping someone could suggest an alternative or if I am missing a change in another part of the code?

    Many thanks
