I am new at this, and I hope I am following protocol here. I am changing a previously created site to WP, so it is easier to update and maintain. I have a map of our states with cities that reflect past school projects, which I'd like to keep using as our program history. When you click on a city text appears in a right column that summarizes the project. I have created a WP page and have the image with the cities, but I cannot figure how to make it open text in a right sidebar (or column). I do have all the original coding, but I am not sure how to include this in WP or if it needs to be modified or even changed to something better. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
Welcome to WebmasterWorld Jaggie, It's not easy to change the sidebar with a click on a link within the main content area.
It would be much easier to turn off the side bar (use the Full Width or No Sidebars) template when editing the page - the name depends upon the Theme you're using. Then you can add some form of CSS or jQuery info box with your project summaries. Make sense?
Thanks so much for your help. Yes, I can use a template that has a main body with left sidebar. I am using the left sidebar for a sub-menu tied into the primary one across the top. In this case the primary one is "Projects" and the sub-menu on the side is different years. The main body has the same state map, but will change cities according to the year clicked. Each year the cities correspond to school projects, and this is a record of our previous projects. It was suggested that each year be a separate page.
And yes, it will work nicely to have each year be it's own page.
