Cannot figure out how to make the side widget bar show up.

  1. I apologize. I am just such a newb and I cannot figure out how to get my side navigation widget menu on the twenty eleven theme. Everything I've looked up says to go to directory then to content and I just can't even find the directory. Help me please.

    Thank you!

  2. Hi Sarah,

    See if this guide helps: Widgets.

  3. Hi Sarah,

    Your theme description details are here http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentyeleven/
    The live demo site is here http://twentyelevendemo.wordpress.com/

    I recommend that you see here http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/workings-of-duster/ for an article that describes all features of the Twenty Eleven theme, which is NOT designed to provide a sidebar on single posts when displayed on their own pages.

    To populate the sidebars Ephemera Widget you can make use of the Aside or Link post formats when you create a new entry (or convert an old one).

    Note also that widgets now have "visibility" settings so we can select which pages they display on. See here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/#widget-visibility
