XF 1.4 different sidebar to what node/thread is displayed


Active member

Is it possible to show a different sidebar as to what node the member is on. for example if they where on the cars discussions node/threads i can display sidebar banners but if on a motorbike node/thread i show banners for motorbikes.

Thanks in advance.

There is no sidebar on the thread view template by default so I presume you are using an add-on.

You should be able to use conditional statements utilising the node ID to display different content for each node.
