How to Create Side Bar for Weebly Pages
Side bars are a very effective usability feature of a web page. In Weebly, you can create side bars for any page using the ‘Two Column Layout’ element. You can use the side bar to link to social networks, place advertisements and other pointers. Following steps describe how we implemented side bar for TeluguMahal weebly site. This is also a good example of using Two Column element inside another two column element.
To incorporate side bar, Drag-and-drop a two column layout element into place. Then adjust the column width to a size that you like the side bar to be by simply dragging the centre divider left or right. Now drag and drop any elements in to the sidebar column. You can rearrange the elements in the side bar simply by moving the elements to the place. Once you have all the elements in the sidebar the way you want, you can copy the entire two column layout element to other pages by clicking the green arrow button at top right corner of the element.
This will copy the two column layout element along with all of the elements added to the side bar. If you need the other pages to display elements in a different order, you can change it without effecting other pages. Changes made to a page remain with that page only. If there are any elements that are not applicable to other pages, you can delete them in the respective pages.
[Update: In the comments below, Bill Montana has a decent description about how to deploy the new sidebar tag. It has details of CSS and changes to html required to create a sidebar that is consistent across all pages. Thanks to Bill for keeping us posted.
