    Hi all,

    i trust that you are well

    I am stummped on a few issues with regards to my sidebar & thought perhaps someone might be able to find help

    I am using theme twenty eleven (default)theme that came with wordpress

    My side bar works fine on index on page with posts
    example http://www.atomcoupons.com

    & works fine on pages (warning! this example plays audio radio commerical)
    http://www.atomcoupons.com/coupon-code/iolo-technologies-coupon-codes/

    But...when i click the post on the index page, to the post url the sidebar disappears
    http://www.atomcoupons.com/iolo-technologies-produce-utility-software-that-optimizes-and-protects-computers/

    I use the <?php get_sidebar(); ?>, but why is this not showing sidebar from main index templete

    I then add
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    on single post php, the sidebar appears, but text runs accross the page over the main post (i.e not contained in the sidebar)

    Does anyone know what is happening or how to fix

    Regards, GuN

    try using a plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twenty-eleven-theme-extensions/

    also, do not edit the default theme Twenty Eleven directly, but create a child theme to work with; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
