How’s mobiles? Normally something like 80 % or more are using mobiles and for them sidebars are useless. Will they see something or is this only for desktops and tablets?


@Jagster Yes this will work on mobile :grinning:

The Layouts Plugin can be configured to work on mobile. Here’s some more info from the documentation about how to set that up:


As our british friends say: splendid indeed :laughing:

Now I have to give a spin. My users are… not so tech savvy so they need all possible help and info.


Just to summarise a few changes that have occurred recently:

  • I’ve added support for Right Sidebar Blocks too
  • I’ve partially migrated it to Glimmer (the widget invokes a Glimmer Template)
  • I’ve added caching to prevent frequent calls to tags.json (which it was calling with each page change!) - if you want to see a new tag you must refresh your browser. This will alleviate:
    • burden on the server
    • the visible refresh.
