I'm trying to port my work's existing website onto WordPress and I've encountered an infuriating problem that I cannot work out how to solve. I am using WordPress 3.0 with the 2010Weaver (Ivory Drive) theme.
I have setup a static homepage in WordPress and in order to display my blog posts, I have created a second page called 'news' which is where I want my blog posts to go to. I've set this up in the 'Reading' section of the admin panel.
I'm using a plugin called 'Sidebar Generator' to create custom sidebars depending on the page being viewed. When the 'news' page is displayed, I want to display a custom 'news' sidebar to be displayed and have defined the call in the page creation to call the 'news' sidebar when the news page is viewed.
However, the sidebar doesn't display in the news listings page (www.mysite.com/news), although it DOES display when the individual post is clicked through (www.mysite/news/news-item).
I can't seem to figure out why the sidebar isn't being displayed on the top-level news page, but is being displayed on individual items..
