Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar missing in pages for Twenty-eleven

  • Change is gonna come

    I’ve just started building my website and realise that, while the sidebar is showing up on the home/blog page, it’s not present on Pages.

    I’ve searched the two blogposts for stray <div> code but can’t find any. Same with the Pages html.

    Twenty-eleven does have a sidebar on pages so I don’t know where I’ve gone wrong.

    I’d be grateful if someone could help. I’m using Safari.

    I’ve just started

    take it slow and use the forum search – most ‘problems’ and false expectations with Twenty Eleven have been addressed already by this forum.

    there is no sidebar in static pages in Twetny eleven – by design.
    same for single posts.

    there is however a page template with sideber (Sidebar Template), which you can use under ‘Page Attributes’ – ‘template’ when you edit a page.

    alternatively, try the plugin

    if you consider customisations which include editing templates, strongly consider to create a child theme first, to make the customisations with;

    for pure css edits, consider using a custom css plugin;

    Thank you alchmyth. I discovered that in each page’s edit function there’s a Page Attributes box on the right with a drop-down menu which includeds the choice to have the sidebar. I’m now using it and there is a sidebar on every blog and static page at my site. This was a very simple solution that needs flagging up somehow.

    Judging by the confusion in other threads on this topic, the designer could do more to make it easier (idiot-proof) for people like me. The initial description in the Theme page is not clear.
