[resolved] Twenty Eleven with Child theme: default and sidebar (8 posts)

    I have all static pages so far, with my Home static page set to use the Sidebar template, and the rest of the pages use the default template. I'm not sure why I decided to do it that way, now.

    However, I don't see any difference in the output between the two templates.

    Is there some distinct differences between the Twenty Eleven Sidebar and Default templates?

    When I had one of my pages set to the default template it was lacking the sidebar and that was the only noticeable difference to me.

  3. what layout option do you have selected under:
    dashboard - apperance - theme options?

    if you have 'one-column, no-sidebar' selected, then even the 'sidebar template' will not show a sidebar.

    please post a link to your site to illustrate your problem.

    alchymyth, I have "content on left" selected.

    I don't have a "problem" - yet.

    My content appears as I want it. However the main page


    has "sidebar" template selected

    and this second static page


    has "default" template selected.

    I can see no difference between the layout of the two, and as I progress to potentially making some static pages parents of others, I thought it best to try to understand "if" and "what" the difference(s) may be between Twenty Eleven's "default" and "sidebar" templates.


  5. I see that you are using the 'theme extensions' plugin;

    I am not fimiliar with the possible settings options of that plugin;

    but it is possible that the plugin is overwriting the 'default' non-sidebar page (?)

    Do you mean that your understanding is that without the theme extensions plugin, the Twenty Eleven's "default" template would NOT offer a sidebar menu, even if the theme was set to have the Default layout "content on left" instead of "one column, no sidebar"?


  7. yes - without a plugin, the default page.php template in Twenty Eleven does NOT provide a sidebar, regardless of the layout settings.
