I can't wait to get my hands on this. Awesome work yet again!

Thanks. It's really an awesome feature. I've spent the last hour implementing this and the forum blocks on one of my boards. I'm really expecting a higher interest from advertisers, now where we can place their ads only in the specific forums and categories and target their real audience( They're paying for impressions and now they're not wasting them anymore by showing the ads in not related forums)

Figured it out. If this could add a bock over/under the content as well as the side bar we could use this in area where we are really stuck.

Is it possible to move those block from sidebar to above or below content? 

No. I asked the same question right above yours. If you find a mod that does this please let me know. Our site would be so much more intuitive if this feature were an option  , @Fosters

I bought it couse I though it's possible to move those blocks ;/ 

We're sorry for this misunderstanding.  As stated in the title of the application and description, we made it clear that this app is targeted to the Sidebar and not all hot zones.  The Sidebar has a different template and acts differently than the main page, which is why we wanted to offer this app for the Sidebar.

I just installed this and have one comment, and one question. First, overall this is a great idea for a mod, and I hope you keep updating it.

In the description I think you need to emphasize that it works on your custom blocks only, and not on the system blocks. I was really hoping that it also worked on the system blocks, for example I don't want my Pages categories navigation menu on my index page, but I do want it on all other pages and all other categories. A great feature would be to make this also work on the system blocks. 

An ideas out there to make a system block not appear on my site's index page, but on all other pages?

I am having some issues getting this working--it doesn't seem to work with a custom block that I created. Even though I select only one category, it is still showing in all categories. Any idea why it isn't working?

Is this still an issue? If yes, could I please get ACP access to take a look at this?

Can you tell me if you can place Blocks independently on the Category List, Featured Records, Record Listing and Record Display? Or are the Blocks just placed into the Category regardless if they are Category List, Featured Records, Record Listing or not?

I am also going to assume that if I place a block in Database 2, the block will only display in that Database and none of the others?

Does this only work with your blocks and not system blocks? With this work with other 3rd party blocks?

Yes only blocks creates with the pages app, but it supports all blocks , even 3rd party ones 🙂

With this, could each record have its own sidebar of blocks?

I'm trying to come up with a different article (so front-end mods/non-admins can edit--normal turnover, but frequent changes needed to be made to said pages) for each sub-organization on my website, and each sub-organization would have a wiki-like "info block" that gives you basic details like "leader" or "established 2009," etc.

I'm having an issue with images (uploaded into a block and then implemented using Pages Sidebar) disappearing for some reason, showing cracked images in their place. This has happened several times, with different blocks but all implemented with Pages Sidebar... and with no other blocks or other placement.

I add the images to the blocks in the standard fashion. Once they "disappear", if I right-click and copy the image address, I get a 404 error.

Sample code for one of the image embeds: 

<p style="text-align: center;">
	<a href="http://vinylguardgolf.com" rel="external nofollow"><img alt="new_logo_300.png" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" data-fileid="54516" data-unique="2iub2bh33" src="https://www.turfnet.com/uploads/monthly_2018_08/new_logo_300.png.3e8977aee383d6e3ba6f5e1a1e445fbe.png">
  </a></p>

Screenshot of cracked images attached.

Guidance, please...

Well, the image doesn’t exist at that location or at least is not publicly accessible. So it fails.

In general: do not directly link uploads from your uploads folder. You might rather upload it to the theme and then use the theme tag for that image in your source code.

Perhaps a semantic question, but how can images exist in uploads and then NOT exist at some later point?

They can for example be deleted when they are not used anymore (e.g. as registered attachment) and your manual block call doesn’t count as “use”, since the system doesn’t know it. 

So again: Don’t use the direct file URL. Use a dynamic link to it.
