WordPress 2.0 - Permalink Pages Have No SideBar... (13 posts)

    Hello:

    I am using WordPress 2.0 and the WordPress Default Theme.

    My Blog is at:
    http://www.BlogViewsByRoz.com/index.php

    It seems that my *permalink* pages *do not* have the *right sidebar* as the rest of the Blog pages do.

    Here is a Permalinked page:
    http://blogviewsbyroz.com/2006/03/02/electic-academy-online-learning-facility/

    As well, from the Permalinked page there is no way to get back to the main Blog page.

    I noticed this problem after sending this link out to over 8,000 of my discussion groups members.

    Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.

    Sincerely,

    Roz Fruchtman

    That's the "default" theme for you. Doesn't have sidebars on anything but the index page.

    [If this were me, and I didn't want to change themes, I'd use a little bit of js on the other page templates:

    <a href="javascript:history.go(-1)" onclick="self.status=document.referrer;return true">BACK</a>

    That would do it....]

    Why to complicate? Clicking on the blog title it always takes you back to the main page. Don't most themes do that?

    Hehe..that's what I had basically said in my reply above, but noticed he either modified something or something wasn't right in that part of the header I guess...didn't want to add to the confusion so I removed it... :/ =(

    Had not realized that the default template was set up to not have a right column on all pages. I would not have chosen it had I known as my experience is very limited with editing php and css. I am learning as I go along here trying to get a blog up to convert from MovableType.

    We have been working on getting this blog set up since last Friday. Nothing else is getting done and it is getting to be a bit much.

    I am not sure what to do now as this format is unacceptable if I can't have the sidebar on all pages.

    This is a review blog and not everyone knows to click on the header. I am not looking to upset people when they are visiting.

    IF anyone has any suggestions I would be more than a little grateful!

    Sincerely,

    Well I went back to look at my original MovableType Blog (which I am trying to convert from) at:

    http://www.BlogViewsByRoz.com/index.htm

    An example of a Permalink page is here:

    http://www.blogviewsbyroz.com/mt/archives/2006/02/roz_says_this_b.html

    Notice... there is a way to *get back to* the *main* page of the Blog.

    I had not remembered or even noticed that there was no sidebar, but I DID know that there was a way to *get back to* the main page. That had been enough for me for over a year, so I suppose while I would like the sidebar, I could live without it, but would want a way to get back to the Main Page - that is obvious *to all.* I never assume that everyone knows everything! (IF I had a choice, I would like the sidebar, but... )

    I would be happy to be able to get back to the main page.

    IF anyone can help I would be most grateful.

    Thanks.

    Roz

    Roz - another poster has just said she managed to fix this somehow in the default theme. I've asked her to post back how she did it. You can watch for her reply in this thread:

    I'm just echoing it here for you, hope it helps:

    Tracyred06 posted:

    On single.php, add the following line almost at the bottom, right above the command to get the footer:

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    The entire sidebar doesn't show up. No archives, and I see that sidebar.php has commands that call for the archives to show if it's the front page, etc. That doesn't bother me. I just wanted my categories and some navigation that I added.

    Oh, and I also had to change this at the top of the single.php page.

    Was:
    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id="content" class="widecolumn">

    Changed to:
    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">

    Moshu points out in the other thread referred above that there is something known as the "kubrick all-sidebar theme". Maybe that would work better for you?

    This is so great! It is like posting, going to sleep and getting up to world full of answers!

    Only, I went out to do errands.

    THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!

    I will try all of this. Also I was led to the link with the All-sidebar version. I want to try the solution here to add the sidebar as I too want to learn to tweak WordPress. I don't like to feel so needy when there are just simple things to do. I am new to PHP and CSS, AND... WordPress.

    Thanks again to everyone.
