I’ve been tasked with moving a website from cold fusion to wordpress. In the old site there are several templates that are brought into the site via cfinclude. I’ve coded most of a custom wordpress theme that recreates the look and feel of cold fusion site, and copied relevant html to corresponding pages. However, each page of the site needs its own “sidebar menu”, for lack of a better term, and many pages share one or more templates.
The solutions I find, multiple custom sidebars and widgets, result in short code, which won’t work in the html, and short of making each page its own php template, I can’t directly insert php code either. I’d rather not hardcode the html in each page, unless that’s the only option.
Maybe this is a pathetic noob question, but I’m not terribly familiar with all the details of either cold fusion or wordpress.
