Front page with sidebar

  • Is it possible to have a front page with sidebar (left or right)? I am trying to have 2 different languages and i can do that in all other pages but not in the front page. If not, how do i put a flag for viewers to be able to change to a different languages?

  • Did you try Customizit!>Front Page>Set up the front page layout>Right Sidebar?

    Yes, but is not working.

    I have the same problem. Front page layout is stuck on full width.

    I have the same problem. Front page layout is stuck on full width. site is betterpainting.net. using 3.1.6 on wp 3.8

    Use this link and scroll down (quite a way) to Pages and posts layout. That explains how to set the global default. But there’s also a similar dropdown in Customizit!>Front Page which sets the sidebar layout for just the Front Page, and may be different to the global settings.

    Then each Page can also be edited (Dashboard>Pages>Edit page – Layout Options) and there is a panel to set the sidebar layout there too.

    Is none of that working?

    The global settings are different from the front page settings. Global settings effect all pages. I just want to get a right column on the front page so I can put a sign up form there. I also want to be able to control which widegets appear on which pages/posts. Is there a way to do that? For instance: I only want the sign up form on the front page, but I want a number of other widgets on the internal pages.

    I can edit the pages ok. But it’s not great. Everything seems too big, too in your face, loud. Is there a way to scale that back?

    I did all that. I set the global default layout and checked the box for Force default layout everywhere. I can’t see anything changing!
    Can you tell me, in Customize–>Front Page–> Front Page Displays how must be: Static Page? I’m asking coz i dont know if i am doing someting wrong here

    Maybe if we change the size of the slider? Then there will be more space?

    Look how the frong page appears. http://www..feraspis.gr
    I’m sure theres not enough space. The sidebar goes underneath

    Front Page can point to either a Static Page or your Latest Posts. So there are a few combinations that can be set (Home & Blog refer to Pages):
    1) Front page displays: Don’t show any posts or page
    2) Front page displays: your latest posts =Displays posts
    3) Front page displays: A static Page
    Posts page: –Select–
    Front page: –Select– =Displays posts
    4) Front page displays: A static Page
    Posts page: –Select–
    Front page: Home =Displays static page
    5) Front page displays: A static Page
    Posts page: Blog
    Front page: –Select– =Displays posts
    6) Front page displays: A static Page
    Posts page: Blog
    Front page: Home =Displays static page

    Options 4 & 6 are the most likely to use. You’ll need to set up the Home/Blog static pages if you want them.

    The sidebar position is often raised and it will need a Snippet to change it. It’s on Nic’s wishlist I believe.

    I will follow your advice and hope for a change! Is the only page that i can not translate. Do you know if there is a simple way to put flags somewhere on the up right of a page, for different languages.
    Thank you very much for your help!

    Please start a new thread when you have a new question.

    Two easy ways to add flags are explained here.

    Yes, i did that and is working. Thank you very much.
