Custom Public Sidebar

I've seen it partially asked, but never answered completely.  I want, for now, to customize my public sidebar with additional links to other pages.  I do not want the supporter nav to appear for now.....I am not ready for allowing people to sign in....but I want the same functionality as the supporter nav to put links on that sidebar.  I would also like to keep the "donation" and "volunteer" buttons that come with the supporter nav sidebar.  Can you tell me how I can do this on my public nav sidebar?  Any code examples with dummy links to dummy pages built in would be great.

While it's not possible to have the exact same functionality for your public nav (sidebar) as you have for your supporter nav — particularly the "Include in Supporter Nav" checkbox on your page settings — you can customize your sidebar manually by editing the _columns_2.html template in most themes. 

To learn more about how to customize your theme, I would recommend reading our theme documentation. If you have specific questions (or get stuck!) feel free to email your organizer or reach out to us at [email protected]
