    How do I get the Panel Headings or Styles heading on the right side bar of my pages.

    Examples here: http://demo.themeblvd.com/?theme=commodore

    I want to place the code….

    [panel title=”Panel heading” footer=”Optional footer text”]
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad veniam.
    [/panel]

    …so it will display on my right side bar. I can’t figure out how this works. I’ve tried everything.

    Hi Bruce,

    Unfortunately there is no feature in the theme for sidebar widgets to use Bootststrap panels. This is a whole separate thing.

    So none of the Compents found here…

    WordPress doesn’t natively support shortcodes in widgets. It is possible to add this functionality though through your Child theme’s functions.php, however that would be a customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    Here’s an article that shows how to do this by allowing you to put shortcodes in a Text widget:

    You can do this via plugins like this one, as well:

    Keep in mind that shortcodes are not styled for widgets and sidebars. So it’s possible that not all of the theme’s shortcodes will look right when placed in a widget.

    Got it. Reason I ask is that I am trying to create a “side bar” I can use on several pages without having to create the same thing on each page. So when I make a change, it will change all the pages this side bar is on.
