WordPress Sidebars featuring Dynamic Widget

In this WordPress theme Minion, we support 2 sidebars: Main Sidebar on the left side, displaying all the main navigation and the Secondary Sidebar to the right side.

The Main Sidebar with main navigations

On the Secondary Sidebar, we have developed an exclusive Drag & Drop function for Tab and Accordion areas in backend. By dragging & dropping, you now can freely add and remove any widget you wish to have on these two sections.

Did you thinked about releasing a “plus” version of the theme too? Donno a pro version or something in between your premium themes and free ones with some more basic settings added to wp customizer like google fonts picker and few more styles(this one is b&w with green accent color, one could be with blue …etc)?

@BuleSolePhoenix !

To install the theme using WordPress installer, you need to use file.

1. From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Appearance > Themes menu.
2. Click on the Install Themes button.
3. Click on the Upload link
See the screenshot:
4. Navigate and select the theme file on your computer. Its name will be displayed in the input field.
5. Click the Install Now button and WordPress will attempt to install the theme.

Hi there,
How do I make the secondary side bar empty? I don’t want anything to be displayed in it. And is there a way to remove social media bar on the right?

Absolutely cracking theme DW! Can I ask how you put the custom content into the about and contact pages? such as the timeline, the nice tabular layout for contact details etc?

Hello @ Mishka Plyushevy !
– To resolve this problem you can log in to Dashboard > Appearance > Widget > Secondary Sidebar > and then Remove all the widget here.
– To remove social media bar on the right, you can add the following code to the style.css file:

.site-actions .social {
display: none;
