Sidebar / Column on front page?



  • Forgive me for my naivety, I don’t have any experience from Prestashop to carry over.
    Using the default community theme, I’d like to have a sidebar/column to display a tree of product categories on the front page, as well as a small box for links at the side of the page, next to the current “New Arrivals” and Custom CMS as shown below. How would I go about doing this? I can tell you I’ve tried enabling/disabling things in the advanced settings of the theme and have looked through all the modules and their settings to try and find a way to but can’t so far.

  • Hi @CaitlynMSL please post if you find a way to do this.

    I’m using Panda theme index columns do not change no matter what I check in advanced theme settings or modules>positions.

    See if this helps change default theme for you





  • THANK YOU! so much @Tomik
    FIXED!

    Can’t tell you how many hours wasted walking away coming back trying to do this! :(

    Wish we could get these sort of fixes pushed daily/weekly/whenever to our BO in case they are missed on the forum.

    Was just putting together an email for Panda dev asking how to do it.

    For those not sure how to make the fix, this worked for me:

    Went to github to copy the whole controllers/admin/AdminThemesController.php
    chose raw file then copied it

    Found my file on cpanel renamed the old one (just in case) then replaced it with the new github one.



  • @vzex Ah, thank you so much! I thought the theme settings were deciding things to appear on the sidebar, not which pages the sidebar would appear on. Much my mistake, thank you.

    True this would help allot.
