In-Post sidebar? (8 posts)

    I know by default that Twenty Twelve does not have in-post sidebars. Twenty Eleven didn't either but at least it had an extension plugin to add those.

    Does Twenty Twelve have anything similar? Should I even bother trying seeing as Twenty Thirteen should be out in a little bit and hope that in-post sidebars will be an option?

    I like the minimalist look that Twenty Twelve does, I just don't like the lack of side-bar options.

  2. I don't understand the question, as Twenty Twelve clearly has a sidebar in single.php - or what else is a 'in-post sidebar'?

    There's an option to activate the sidebar for pages and having no widgets removes the page sidebar by default.

    However, for individual posts I don't see an option for that. Is this something I have to manually change in the code? Is there a plugin that I can install to do this for me? Or should I just wait for Twenty Thirteen or find a different theme that allows for post sidebars?

  4. having no widgets removes the page sidebar by default.

    then add widgets to the widget area - after all this is the purpose of a sidebar.

    afaik, there is no time frame set for the development of a Twenty Thirteen - this could be close to the end of the year...

    however, you can always look for a responsive theme with (undestructable) sidebars on posts;

    try for instance the tag filter for the WordPress Themes' Directory: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/tag-filter/

    Sorry, I don't think I was clear. I have widgets in the sidebar and it's for the page sidebar. My page sidebar works fine.

    But, for individual posts, I have no sidebar and there appears to be nowhere to place widgets to even form an individual post sidebar.

    Is there a way around this besides getting a different theme?

  6. a single post would call the widget area 'Main Sidebar' - do you have widgets in there?

    if yes, and they don't show, then your theme might be broken, or some plugins are interfering;

    temporarily deactivate all plugins to see if that helps.

    Yes I do. I have search, categories, recent posts, and an ad affiliate in that section. These widgets show up on the two pages that I have which are "Home" and "Latest posts".

    I disabled all plugins and the sidebar on the pages were still there. However, on individual posts I still did not have a sidebar. This has been an issue with me since I created this site and I have been using the Twenty Twelve theme since version 3.0. Never with any version did I have a side bar for individual posts so I don't think I have a broken theme.

    I know other themes automatically have individual post sidebars and I'd like the same for Twenty Twelve. If I'm being confusing in anyway, I can take screenshots and upload them to make communication easier.

    Your patience and help is much appreciated in this problem.
