Define a widget area in a partial template



  • Good morning.

    I just defined a widget area in the menu.tpl (partial used in header.tpl) called navbarsearch with a global scope (all pages). That area is visible in the admin panel, I assigned a dummy html widget to it.

    theme.js

    {
    	name: 'NavBar Search Area',
    	template: 'global',
    	location: 'navbarsearch',
    }
    

    partial template:

    <div widget-area="navbarsearch" style="background-color: red; flex-grow: 1;"></div>
    

    api output:

    "widgets": {
        "navbarsearch": [ {
            "html": "<div class=\"well\">Test</div>"
        } ], ...
    

    The api-output of any page shows the widget contents, but it doesn't get rendered into the widget-area... Did I miss anything?

    Best,
    Flo

    Widgets are only rendered on the page itself right now https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/blob/master/src/middleware/render.js#L53. We would have to add support so they are rendered in renderHeader method as well. Open an issue on our github it could be a nice addition.
