Mantra
page column on blog posts vs static pages (3 posts)

    Hi all, I am new to the Mantra theme and am using it for a website with static pages (which have a wide format and do not use a sidebar) ... currently am adding a blog section and just wondering if it's possible to have sidebar column showing up only on the blog section (i.e. no column on the static pages, but only on the blog posts)

    ... changing layout options in the mantra settings would seem to apply to any & all pages, so my question is whether it's possible to apply settings only to one particular page (i.e. which would display blog posts) .... any insight into this would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks in advance

    After you set the layout to 2 columns, 1 sidebar (so it applies to the blog section), you edit all your static pages and set them to use the "One column, no sidebar" page template.

    thanks for your feedback theZedt ... I will try this asap ... just wondering though, would those edits get overwritten when updating the theme? or is there a way to make the changes more permanent?

    thanks again
