[resolved] How to make inside pages same as front page design? (8 posts)

    I'm sorry... I'm sure this is answered somewhere in the volume of literature but I'm not finding it.

    My interior pages (archive pages and permalink pages) do not have the sidebar. My starting point was the default WordPress template, which also operates that way. New pages do have the side bar. I need all my pages to have that side bar.

    Is there a setting or easy piece of code?

    It is probably mentioned just about everywhere - except where you looked ;-)

    Make sure <?php get_sidebar(); ?> is in each of your templates.

    That does it, but the sidebar is below the content now. It seems the content on inside pages (in the default template) is so wide it bumps the next DIV down. Hope I'm on the right track.

    I wish there was a plug in that would standardize all these pages.

    Your problem comes from using the default. It has a widecolumn (when no sidebar) and a narrowcolumn (when sidebar is present. You will have to edit some PHP code in the header.php to achieve what you want. Or, you can always pick a theme that's easier to edit.

    Thank you. I would like an easier theme next time. Do you have suggestions?

    Thank you!

    I figured out how to hand code it about 5 minutes before this was posted. But I guess that's how the Gods teach us design.

    Thanks everybody. Case closed for me.

    Apart from creating your own, the only way to get exactly what you want is to edit a theme someone else has created. The task is finding one close to what you like as a starting point.

    Kafkaesqui had already done what you were attempting and was kind enough to make it available to everyone. Too bad you didn't know about it sooner.
