    Hi everyone,

    I just downloaded and installed Simple Sidebars to use with my Genesis framework. I created a few sidebars and used them with no problems on some of my wordpress pages. Now the problem I'm having is on my Blog page and posts I want to use a Blog sidebar. I created the sidebar and selected it on my blog page, but it still shows the default sidebar, as do most of the blog posts. What should I do?

    What version of Genesis & WP are you using? How did you set up your blog page?

    Since that's a dev site, try turning off all your plugins except simple sidebars.

    Hi Ron, I deactivated all the plugins except Simple sidebars, and Brafton article loader (because that gives me the content for my blog). The problem is still there. I can change the sidebar on any of the pages, but on the blog it will not change.

    For the blog I created a page and changed the layout to the Blog Template. Would this have anything to do with it? Also, I found some articles about how to use your plugin and they say to register the sidebar in the functions.php file and even to create a sidebar-blog.php, so I did this also.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    I don't know if you resolved this candy_cayn - I found this thread while trying to solve the same problem myself.
    I was unable to fix it per se, but my workaround was to simply use the default sidebar for the Blog Page, and use the Simple Sidebars for the other pages.
