Available Widget Areas

Widget areas (or Sidebars) usually contain widgets that an administrator of the site can customize.  Widget areas are very important in this theme if you want to build original page layouts. We’ve created many widgets areas and useful Widgets which combined can help you create modular pages.

Available Widget Areas

By default Vivi offers the following widget areas:

The main sidebar can be enabled or disabled on pages and posts, and displayed on the left or right side of the content.

Beside the main sidebar there are other widgets zones as you can see in the image above.

Custom Widget Areas

With Vivi you can also build out your own widget areas to be used in the page settings area.


In the Flothemes – Content Settings – Sidebars options, you can create custom widget zones that can be used on individual pages or posts instead of main sidebar. Simply click the + sign, name the sidebar and save changes.

You can use the custom widget areas that you’ve created above to give you more page customization:
