Support » Fixing WordPress » No sidebar on Archive pages

  • I notice on my individual Archive pages, there’s no sidebar. At http://www.beyourowndetective.com/blog click on any post title. Also on these pages the body of content is way over to the right where the sidebar normally sits, and there’s also a big empty space on the left third of the page. I assume this is normal behavior for the Kubrick theme.

    If I want to have a consistent look throughout my blog, can I get this page to have the same layout with the sidebar as the other pages? I searched the WordPress site but didn’t find documentation on this.

  • That’s the divine “punishment” for those using the K. theme, LOL
    That’s like that by design. Look for the all sidebar Kubrick to change it.

    I tried other themes but I actually found them more difficult to work with. Do I find the all sidebar Kubrick theme in the codex? When I find the theme, could I get away with just uploading the file that controls the archives page? I also wanted to be able to have stuff like Ads by Google in the sidebar of all my blog pages.

    under K. – All Sidebar edition

    I downloaded the allsidebars theme, but I’m wondering if I could make this work by just uploading 1 or 2 files from allsidebars, to my existing K theme, instead of having to switch to a new theme. This way I won’t have to customize a new theme from scratch to match my existing one.

    Couldn’t I add <?php get_sidebar(); ?> to archives.php in my existing theme to force it to put a sidebar on my /archive/ pages you get when you click on a post title?

    I see <?php get_sidebar(); ?> already exists at the very bottom of archive.php, just above <?php get_footer(); ?> but this tag is missing from archives.php.

    When I tried adding it to archives.php, that didn’t work and I can’t figure out why.
