Side Matter
[resolved] Sidenotes don't appear (2 posts)

    I absolutely love the idea and look of Side Matter, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work on my site.

    Here is an example page, http://wanglophile.com/side-matter-test/, where the sidenotes don't appear.

    My theme is Ryu by Automattic.

    I would be very grateful for any help.

    Hi wanglophile,

    Looks like the Ryu theme is one-column by default and does not include a sidebar. Side Matter needs to be used with a theme that includes a sidebar widget area, or there's no place to generate its notes.

    If you have experience with WP child theme development, you could edit the Ryu theme's layout to add a sidebar (this post could be a good starting point if anyone responds). Otherwise, you'll need to use a different theme to get Side Matter working.
