    Hi guys,

    I'm currently in the mode of designing my site and have been researching everywhere trying to find out how a design was done on wordpress on the sidebar.

    Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

    From what I'm thinking, it could be a widget,but the person has locked he's website so that I can not inspect element(how was this also done?), I really want to know how he added the "read more" feature on the right sidebar.

    Here is a link to the site http://cheattingworld.com/category/androiios/
    Apologies if this is your site.

    Any help would be great.thanks

    Hmmm, I think he is just using latest posts widget... the other part is all theme layout and features..
    As i saw, this guy is using ARRAS theme...

    You have do 1 thing. Open the desired website and just press ctrl+u .
    After that it gives you the source for the website. I think that it may helps you.

    I also thought it was just the latest post widget but it does not give you the option for the "read more" button, Yes tha'ts correct its the ARRAS theme he is using, I tested to see if it was part of the theme but seems like there is no option on there for it also. Wished I could just get hold of the coding so that I can see how it was made

    Go on http://whatwpthemeisthat.com/ and enter that website. You will know all the plugins the version/name of the wp theme that website is using.

    Hi,

    He is using Arras, you know that.

    Here the starting HTML code for the widget:
    Code:
    [FONT=monospace]<li [/FONT][FONT=monospace]id[/FONT][FONT=monospace]="[/FONT][FONT=monospace]arras_featured_stories-2[/FONT][FONT=monospace]" [/FONT][FONT=monospace]class[/FONT][FONT=monospace]="[/FONT][FONT=monospace]widgetcontainer clearfix[/FONT][FONT=monospace]">[/FONT]
    He is using Arras Featured Stories WIDGET and no "default text box" as stated.
    This code is interesting :

    Code:
    [FONT=monospace]<a class="sidebar-read-more" href="[URL]http://cheattingworld.com/contra-evolution-hack/[/URL]">[/FONT][COLOR=#000000][FONT=monospace]Read More[/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=monospace]</a>[/FONT]
    That is the readmore button.


    Looking at : https://code.google.com/p/arras-theme/source/browse/theme/trunk/library/widgets.php?r=423; template DEV worked this :

    Improved 'Read More' button in Featured Stories widget. So it is default. If you use this template, there should be a box to tick. If you can not find it, ask template support. If you do not use this template, you have to find a similar widget (or use the same, since you can find the source code directly)...
    I hope I resolved your problem :)
