Support » Theme: GeneratePress » Sidebar not displaying on pages and posts even after using Customize

  • I am unable to get any sidebar (left or right) to display on any of the pages and posts on my site. I have checked the existing documentation in the forum and applied some of the solution listed (Using Appearance -> GeneratePress -> Layout Options and Appearance -> Customize to specify sidebar layouts for the three types of pages) but it has not helped. I am using Generatepress 2.3.2 child theme and I have a single post template configured (see link above). Woocommerce and sections options are both deactivated

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi there,

    I think that’s happening because you’re using Elementor to build your entire pages (including the sidebar).

    What happens if you create a new page without Elementor activated?

    Hi Tom,
    I just tested a post now by deactivating Elementor and Elementor Pro and voila! the sidebars appeared.
    Is there any other page builder that works well with GP you would recommend as all the pages on my entire site are built with Elementor? If not is there a workaround?
    Once again many thanks and sincere regards.

    GP and Elementor work great together, so you shouldn’t need to switch it up.

    I think you just have Elementor configured to take over the sidebar area of the theme, as well as the content.

    If you just deactivate Elementor Pro, does the issue go away? If so, maybe you’re using their theme builder to build the sidebar?

    Let me know 🙂

    Hello Tom,
    Again I did the test and deactivated just Elementor Pro and indeed the problem was solved and the Sidebars were displayed.
    That means the problem is with the Elementor Pro config. Please, do you have any idea which Elementor Pro specific config I should change?
    Best regards and thanks for all your help.

    I don’t have a ton of experience with Elementor, unfortunately. Are you using their theme builder? Maybe there’s a sidebar element?

    It may be worth reaching out to their support as well.
