    Hi Fruitful,

    Rather than the slider homepage... I want to make my homepage a standard page with a sidebar.

    I can't seem to work out how to do it. I want this page to be the main homepage at the root domain.

    Thank you!

    I've sorted the root domain problem.

    How do I make the homepage the default template (sidebar) instead of full width? I've selected "Default Template" in the page editor but still no change?

    Thanks :-)

    Battlarts,

    In fruitful theme default home page template it's front-page.php you can remove it.

    Hi Fruitful Code,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Do I simply delete the front-page.php?

    Yes, just remove or rename front-page.php
    Add widgets to Main sidebar

    I am having a similar problem but a little different.

    I have set my homepage to be a static page and it is my welcome page for my site. However I would also like the recent posts to show up on the right side of my homepage like it does for all of my other pages but I cannot figure out how to do this.

    I do not want my homepage do just be my recent posts but for my homepage to have the right sidebar for recent posts. Is this possible?

    Fruitful Code - Thank you very much! Worked great!

    loveyourbirth - I renamed front-page.php to front-page_.php and the homepage now inherits the default template with sidebar.

    I created two separate pages. One for my latest posts ('Blog') and another for my homepage ('Home'). In Settings >> Reading... "Front page:" must be set to your static homepage ('Home') and "Posts page:" must be set to the page you want your latest posts to appear ('Blog').

    You can now drag widgets into the sidebar for each page in the Appearance >> Widgets section.

    Same question: How do you rename the front-page.php?

    Thanks!

    Is there a way to have custom sidebars per page? This is great stuff!
