    Hello,

    I need your help creating a custom page template with just the left sidebar (the secondary menu & primary sidebar) and the content. Since it’s a standalone custom page I won’t be needing to make a child theme.

    Can you help me? A hint or some other materials to read would be helpful also.

    What I already did.
    Because I’m a beginner I started reading the codex section for making a custom page and then proceeded: I took the Full Width template page/php file included in the theme but when I edited the file and included a div area with the left sidebar it actually reverted to a default page – thus including the right sidebar as well. I tinkered with code to the best of my close-to-0 abilities but did not manage to make it work.

    Thanks

  • Still you need to create the Child Theme.

    You’re right.

    I’ll put some hours tomorrow in it and make it work. I’ll comeback to mark the topic as resolved after I’ll solve it.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Still haven’t solved it.

    What I did (maybe I missed something)
    1. Did a child theme
    2. Made the template page (situated in the child theme folder)
    3. Made a functions file in the child theme folder with a function that has a simple if: if page template = mine then disable right sidebar

    The function I used is an edited copy of the function from the parent theme that removes the sidebars if the template is a full width page.

    Any help is appreciated. 10x

    Solved it. Forgot to add the filter in child’s function.php

    Thanks mybdbis for the help.

    Its you who actually solve the problem, and glad you make it.

    All the best!!

    after I created the page template I added this function in my functions.php (file in the child theme)

    add_filter( 'sidebars_widgets', 'oxygen_disable_sidebar_right' );
    
    function oxygen_disable_sidebar_right( $sidebars_widgets ) {
    
    	global $wp_query;
    
    	    if ( is_page_template( 'page-template-produse.php') ) {
    		   	$sidebars_widgets['secondary'] = false;
    	    }
    
    	return $sidebars_widgets;
    }
    
    	add_action( 'sidebar_widgets', 'oxygen_disable_sidebar_right', 11 );

    Thanks!
