    Hello,

    I am using twenty eleven theme version 1.3 and I really need to be able to display sidebar in every post the way it displays on the home page. I searched online and tried to edit single.php using the instructions I found but nothing seems to work. I don't know that much about programming, could anyone help me fix this problem?

    Cheers!

    many users are working with this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twenty-eleven-theme-extensions/

    if you rather want to code, read my article.

    in any case, if you want to customise the theme, start with creating a child theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    why not upgrade to the latest wp version 3.4.2 and use Twenty Eleven 1.4 ?

    Have you tried putting

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    in single.php?

    No - not in the default Twenty Eleven theme! Using the plugin mentioned above is the easiest way to add a sidebar.

    Yes correct Esmi.

    But this will be ok if its a child theme of twenty eleven?

    In a child theme, no problem. But never in the parent theme.
