The ClickBump Version 6.3 updates adds several enhancements, in addition to support for WordPress 3.5

Most notable of these is the new “ClickBump Menus” widget. Once you use this widget, you will never use the default “Recent Posts Widget” again. It allows you to place an unlimited number of menus inside any widget area.

But what’s really cool about it is how easy it makes it to create magazine style layouts with multi-column menus. Each custom menus widget has its own unique setup options allowing menus to flow vertically OR horizontally across the page, complete with thumbnails, post excerpts, comment counts, and more. All without touching a line of code or custom CSS.

Here’s a video walkthrough of the new widget and its features:

    So if I have a static page like the about page, can I create the menus on that page. How do I add widgets to a “Page” in wordpress?

    • Hi Susan, to add widgets to a page is the same as adding widgets to a post (or to a category landing page, 404 page, search page, etc).

      To do so, go to “Appearance > Widgets” and drag the desired widget over into one of the six sidebar areas. Once you’ve done that, you can specify, via the widget’s “Widget Visibility” panel, whether it appears everywhere on the site, or just on specific page types (only on home, on pages only, on posts only, on categories only, etc). You can also specify the converse (on all pages except home, etc)

    Hi Scott,

    I have a presales question: Is it possible to have totally different customized sidebars for every single page/post?

    Would be great to hear from you

    • Hi David, its possible but only with the addition of a plugin. You can have sidebars that are specific to the home page, to post pages, to pages, 404, search, category pages, etc, but not post-specific.

    Hi Scott,

    Just a couple of questions. Is the functionality of the clickbump seo plugin incorporated into your theme(s)or are they separate products? On your theme product page about 3/4 of the way down I read this, “ClickBump Engine makes it super simple to integrate these concepts into your site structure by allowing the easy creation of Silo structure sites and if you opt for the bundle package with ClickBump SEO! > topic modeled content with LSI integration.”

    Since I don’t see an option to buy a “bundle package” I suppose you just buy these separately?

    • Hi Glen, great questions. I’m currently not offering a bundle package that includes ClickBump SEO!, so yes, you can order that as a separate purchase.

      The functions of ClickBump SEO! are independent of the theme. The plugin actually works with any theme.

      The creation of a silo structure is made possible by the theme’s enhanced category management tools.
