    Hi, Sorry for the linked wording. If you click on it though it takes you to my blog. Can anyone tell me how to make the front page two columns. I would like a sidebar on the left.

    Thank you.

    Hi, currently this theme doesn't have layout options, so in order to achieve want you want, you will have to edit CSS rules in style.css file.

    From the perspective of usability, sidebar on the right is much more convenient for the users. We can see this all over the web - sites are moving sidebars to right and also top menus. But in case you still want to have it on the left, please read here:

    Hi, I'm using the Tiny Forge Theme. I'm using an Image Widget in the widget area on the front page (on the right)Page set to DEFAULT TEMPLATE

    I want to have the same widget area in my other pages, but want to be able to add different images in that widget area on each page.

    Tried to have it on the front page template - but it takes away the widget area and places the image at the bottom.

    Any idea?

    Hi, Lorraine,

    in terms of front page template, it doesn't have the sidebar and only two widgets are placed on the bottom.

    Is it something like you can see on this website:


    If yes, this website uses plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/random-image-gallery-with-pretty-photo-zoom/

    The Random image gallery with pretty photo zoom WordPress plug-in which allows you to show random image anywhere in your posts, template files or using widgets. When you click the image it will create the pretty photo zoom effect. You can upload your images directly into the folder or you can set the existing image folder location; this plugin will automatically generate the perfect thumbnail image based on the mentioned width. This plugin is very useful to showcase images randomly to user.

    Plugin configuration * Drag and drop the widget * Paste the php code to your php file * Short code for posts and pages

    If you don't want to show random image, then you would have to use sidebar.php copy in your child theme and insert the widget code manually and play with IF statement to filter by page or post ID which image to display.

    Because side bar is outside of the WordPress loop you would need to search for the code that checks the ID of the main content in the loop.

    This may be the answer to your task: Content Aware Sidebars http://wordpress.org/plugins/content-aware-sidebars/

    Your site looks beautiful!
