    In your theme’s single.php edit in notepad to change the following:

    AT TOP of single.php change class="widecolumn" to class="narrowcolumn" like so

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id=”content” class=”narrowcolumn”>

    AT BOTTOM of single.php add <?php get_sidebar(); ?> just before <?php get_footer(); ?> like so

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Save the revised single.php file and upload to your theme’s folder. Clear cache and see the sidebar appear in single post view.
    Good luck.


    Excellent! That’s what I want!

    Thanks Again!

    Thanks for the info – now it works like it should “out of the box”!

    This has always bothered me (why does WP assume that I don’t want to navigate any further when viewing a single post?) and I finally decided to look into it this morning while waiting for files to transfer from one PC to another.
