I'm making a site with Twenty Eleven and want to have the sidebar on the right for some pages and on the left for others. More specifically on the left for Arabic pages and on the right for English pages (I am using WPML). As I could not find control of this in the theme I started reading about creating additional page templates - it would be useful for me to change the logo image and the sidebar content per language as well now that I think about it. I've nearly understood what I have read in Codex and forums but it is still a little complex for and I don't have a clear picture of the steps. Can anyone help me here ?
I guess it could be done by making a page template that can be selected in the 'Templates' dropdown of 'Page Attributes' when creating or editing a page.
OR there could be an IF statement to pick up the url's with /ar/ for the arabic language.
thanks to anyone who can answer this
