Condition in Sidebar.php

    Hey everyone, my problem is that i want to add a condition to my sidebar to only display the chatbox I want to embed when it’s a single page view. Here’s the code that i tried.

    `<?php if (is_single() == true){
    Chat
    }
    ?>`

    Is it because adding this condition in sidebar.php the problem and if is, is there anyway i can embed a chat only during single.php view?

    Edit: Sorry for posting in wrong section of the forum. Too bad i can’t change it’s location….

    Never mine, i found a way to do this by creating another sidebar and call it with this code:

    If anyone has a better way then this then please reply.

    Your is_single() test should work, and it doesn’t require the ‘== true’ it returns true or false so if( is_single() ) will return true if on a single.php view.

    But will it work if i execute it in sidebar.php? Because i tried and it didn’t work.

    Yes it will or at least it shouild do. The sidebar.php is generally called from the individual files. In my single.php I call get_sidebar() thus I’m on a single page calling the sidebar – works for me anyhow :)
