Right Sidebar Blocks

No, this component will only be compatible with the next major version bump to stable, so stable 3.0.0 and higher. (The good news is that that bump is coming very shortly, most likely in a matter of days.)


It has arrived! :tada: :slight_smile:


That is wonderful news!! Thank you so much for that update!!!

Wonderful!!! Thank you, @JammyDodger for the news !!!

Is there a way to put the sidebar on the Left for RTL websites?
A right sidebar with a vertical menu also on the right isn’t great, the main body ends up being too far to the left.

I haven’t tried it, but flipping the placement of the main column and the sidebar should be doable in your theme with just CSS. Can you give that a try? At the moment, there are no plans to add RTL-specific support to this component.

I’m not very familiar with CSS, do you have something I can start with?

No, sorry, I don’t have anything ready-made.

Hello, it seems workable :slightly_smiling_face:

Add this to a component. Desktop > CSS

@media screen and (min-width: 767px) {
  .tc-right-sidebar {
    html.rtl & {
      float: left;
    + #list-area {
      html.rtl & {
        float: right;


Thank you!, that worked!

would be an idea to grant trust levels to view?

currently our site is private, but the right sidebar shows all info still for non logged in users, which creates a privacy issue.

Can we lock it to appear for only trust levels and which levels that can view it,

Many thanks

Just a thought. What about implementing maybe a swipe right to summon the sidebar on mobile?

Can’t it be displayed on the category list, I installed it here and feel like I haven’t installed it

how do I let it also show up on the topic page? I mean the discussion page like what we are seeing now.

Adding the sidebar to the topic view is not supported by the component (there’s much less room available for a column).

Is it possible to add a “View all” under Popular Tags like the “View all” from Top contributors?


Sure, that’s reasonable. UX: Add a "View all" link to the popular tags block by pmusaraj · Pull Request #39 · discourse/discourse-right-sidebar-blocks · GitHub should add it (once it gets reviewed and merged).


Love this! Thanks for making it. :handshake:

Is there any way to exclude admins group from the top contributors list?


Also I added this:

*Trying to increase min width to 1024px.

But it has no effect. I know this is on me, missing something, as I have no experience with front end stuff/css. Any help would be appreciated.

Excuse me for the necro-reply, but I am having the same exact issue. My custom footer template disappears, but header stays intact.

Unfortunately I am not too familiar with the plugin API as I am more used to the vanilla DOM.

It looks like the CustomHtml component used in the footer and defined in the core:

is overwritten by the CustomHtml defined in this theme component:

By API, Carson suggests using the below-footer plugin outlet to define your footer custom HTML.
I can show you an example later.
