    Hi,

    I would like to add the pages widget (or preferably a custom menu widget) to the main content area of the error404.php page (instead, or preferably, in addition to the avia combo widget). What would I need to add to error404.php to achieve this please?

    Hi!

    You can add the widget into the “Displayed Everywhere” widget area and use: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/ and the is_404() conditional to display the widget on the 404 page only.

    Best regards,

    Peter

    Hi Dude,

    I already have the pages widget added to the sidebar, but I wanted to add it in to the main content area of the error404.php page, not a sidebar, just below the search box that appears and above where the avia combo widget appears. I have looked at the error404.php page and want the widget to appear above or instead of the code below:

    <h3 class=''><?php _e('Feel like browsing some posts instead?', 'avia_framework'); ?></h3>

    <?php
    the_widget('avia_combo_widget', 'error404widget', array('widget_id'=>'404',
    'before_widget' => '<div class="widget avia_combo_widget">',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h3 class="widgettitle">',
    'after_title' => '</h3>'
    ));
    ?>

    I tried to change the widget name in the code above to the pages_widget, but it didn’t work!

    Hi,

    Open includes error404.php and find this code

    <p><strong><?php _e('Nothing Found', 'avia_framework'); ?></strong><br/>

    Place this code at the bottom.

    <h3 class=''><?php _e('Feel like browsing some posts instead?', 'avia_framework'); ?></h3>

    <?php
    the_widget('avia_combo_widget', 'error404widget', array('widget_id'=>'404',
    'before_widget' => '<div class="widget avia_combo_widget">',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h3 class="widgettitle">',
    'after_title' => '</h3>'
    ));
    ?>

    Remove the same code below. Try to remove browser cache the reload the page.

    Regards,

    Ismael

    Sorry Ismael, am I missing something? You’ve just given me the identical code that already exists on the error404.php and that I referenced in my 2nd post!!

    That code displays the combo widget in the main content area of the 404 page. I want to add a custom menu or pages widget above this (or actually even above the search bar that appears above the combo widget)

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hi,

    Sorry my bad. Please do this instead. On functions.php place this code at the very bottom.

    function new_widgets_init() {

    register_sidebar( array(
    'name' => '404 Widget',
    'id' => '404_sidebar',
    'before_widget' => '<div>',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h2 class="rounded">',
    'after_title' => '</h2>',
    ) );
    }
    add_action( 'widgets_init', 'new_widgets_init' );

    Now edit error404.php and find this code

    <h3 class=''><?php _e('Feel like browsing some posts instead?', 'avia_framework'); ?></h3>

    Below add this code

    <?php
    if ( dynamic_sidebar('404_sidebar') ) :
    else :
    ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Go to Appearance > Widget and add some widgets on 404 Widget Area.

    Regards,

    Ismael
