Sidebar

Mainroad comes with a configurable sidebar that can be on the left, on the right, or disabled. The default layout can be specified in the [Params.sidebar] section of the configuration. The position can be specified for home, list and single pages individually. Use the keys home, list and single with values "left", "right" or false. The layout can be configured per page, by setting the sidebar parameter with one of the same values in the page's front matter.

The sidebar consists of multiple widgets. Widgets can be enabled individually using the widgets key with a list of widget names as value. You can add your own widgets, by placing a template under layouts/partials/widgets/<name>.html. The list of widgets can be overwritten from a page's front matter.

Some widget respect optional configuration. Have a look at the [Params.widgets] and [Params.widgets.social] sections in the example configuration above.

Menus

Mainroad supports multiple menus. The main menu is fully responsive and displayed right under the site header. The secondary menus side and footer are displayed in a sidebar widget and the page footer. To add a page to a menu, add a menu: <menu> parameter to the page's front matter:

menu: main # Add page to a main menu

You can also add a page to multiple menus by providing a list:

menu: ["main", "side", "footer"] # Add page to a main, side, and footer menu

Note: Don't forget to enable the sidemenu widget in the widgets configuration param if you want to use the side menu.

Note: Please keep in mind that Mainroad menus don't support nested items i.e. submenus.
