Twenty Eleven
[resolved] Widget sidebar on static page no visible (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I am setting up a website using Twenty Eleven and will be using static pages for the primary content. For some reason I do not get to see the widgets on the static page but they are visible on a post page. It is set up to have content on left (widgets on right). With home page set to static the widgets are not seen, I have set up a few test pages and no widgets on any of them either. But widgets on the post pages. I have gone through all the pages I could think of (back end) to check for a setting to arrange. What have I missed? Or is this a feature of Twenty Eleven? Any feedback would be a great help

    Thank you for reading
    Ian

    Hello!

    By default this theme works like you have described, for pages it does not show any sidebars. But, if you go and edit a page on the backend , and on the right side you set inside Page Attributes (usually under the page publishing options), you can set the Template to Sidebar Template, than it will show the sidebars. Unfortunately you will have to set this for every page individually where you want a sidebar to appear.

    I hope this was helpful, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

    Greetings,
