Page Sidebar for Twenty Seventeen

Description

Twenty Seventeen is the official WordPress theme in 2017 and it’s really awesome, but unfortunately it has no way to display a sidebar on pages 🙁
Let’s fix that.

Sidebar on all the pages

This tiny plugin will add the Blog Sidebar to all the pages, including the front page! You don’t have to touch a single line of code, and it works for Twenty Seventeen child themes too.

For best results, go to Customize > Theme Options and set Page Layout to One Column.

Sidebar on individual pages

If you want your page sidebar to differ from your post sidebar, it is recommended to install Content Aware Sidebars. That plugin allows you to show and hide widget areas on a wide range of conditions, giving you complete control over your sidebar.

Installation

  1. Navigate to ‘Plugins > Add New’
  2. Search for ‘page sidebar for twentyseventeen’
  3. Install and activate the plugin
  4. That’s it! Blog Sidebar will now be displayed on all pages

Will this plugin work with my theme?

This plugin only works for the Twenty Seventeen theme and its child themes. Try installing it while using another theme, and you’ll see it do… nothing at all.

How to show/hide a different sidebar on pages?

This plugin adds the Blog Sidebar to all pages. If you want to display or hide different sidebars on different pages, we recommend installing Content Aware Sidebars.

Sidebar is not displayed on the front page?

Due to limitations in the theme, the front page sidebar will not be displayed if using the Front Page Sections feature.

Is it possible to move sidebar to the left?

Not with this plugin, it simply adds the Blog Sidebar to all pages.

I have other questions, can you help?

No sidebar on front page ‘panels’

I regret to report the plugin’s only half working. Sidebars magically appeared on separately-published pages, but not on those I’ve allocated to the front-page panels.

I belatedly found this in the info: “Due to limitations in the theme, the front page sidebar will not be displayed if using the Front Page Sections feature.”

Pity, as that’s where I wanted them – but if you use a lot of pages (as opposed to posts) on your 2017 site, this would be very handy.

Simply works as it should!

If you need the Blog sidebar everywhere in Twentyseven this plugin does the job.
If you combine this plugin with Content Aware Sidebars (also by Joachim Jensen) you will have a really flexible way to put al sorts of content in the sidebars.
