    Hi Robert, Thank you for using the willingness theme.

    willingness supports both, right and left sidebar options. However, it doesn't support any page template at the moment. It only shows the default layout you use through Appearance -> Widgets.

    You can go to Appearance -> Widgets and keep widgets on sidebar you would like to use. More details here -> http://enwil.com/willingness

    If you use both sidebar then every page shows both sidebar. If you use right sidebar, then every page shows the right sidebar. If left, then left. You can't change that for only one page.

    However, that option(Page Templates) will be available in the next update of willingness, which will be pretty soon.
    Till then, hold on.

    If it's urgent and you have some programming knowledge then you can create your own custom page template. Here's a good tutorial for that: 'How to create a custom page template'

    Could you consider sending me the link of your website along with page you want to change the layout / template of?

    Thank you robert!

    Hi Manish , Thanks for getting back to me , here is the link to the site i should of supplied it first day it is not attached to a proper domain yet

    I was thinking one solution might be to write a php if statement into the sidebar.php file to detect different page templates?

    I know how to create page templates and i have seen some code written that does this / i see your own theme has a corporate template option.

    Regarding the sites home page I just want to have a right sidebar and have the the remainder of the content fill what is left of the page horizontally, on the rest of the page I would like to have both left and right side bars.

    Regards

    Robert

    Yes, that would be perfect. You'll get exactly what you want through that.

    Regarding the sites home page I just want to have a right sidebar and have the the remainder of the content fill what is left of the page horizontally, on the rest of the page I would like to have both left and right side bars.

    I understand your problem. It can be easily solved by using a different page template(right sidebar template) for the home page. But the problem is that 'willingness' doesn't have other page templates by default. You'll have to create a new page template.

    So, keeping this thing in mind, I'm releasing this feature in the next version upgrade of 'willingness'.

    Hope it helps,
    Thank you Robert!

    I am using the Willingness theme. All of my widgets are showing up at the bottom of the page instead of the right and left columns. Please advise. Thanks

    Are you using it on your mobile phone/ipad or on screen under 1060px?

    Willingness theme is responsive. Which means that it adapts the screen condition. The sidebars were designed to show up at the bottom of the page if the screen is under 1060px.

    Any chance you could send me your website URL?

    It must be my monitor, when I look at the website from my tablet it shows the right and left column. I guess I need to figure out how to change the settings on my monitor.
    Thanks for your help -

    One other question, is there a way to only display the most current post and display a link to older posts? Currently the page scrolls to every post.

    @Confessionsofanemptynester - next time, please don't post the same question more than once - this thread is not the same question and already marked resolved - continue in your own thread:
