Missing Sidebars for Widgets in 2011 Theme

  1. I recently changed my theme to the 2011 theme, which I'm enjoying. However, I noticed that the pages generated for individual posts do not have sidebars on them, even though I selected the "Content Left" option in the theme setup. I thought that perhaps the problem was that individual posts use the "showcase" template, but adding widgets to the Showcase widget section didn't seem to resolve the problem.

    Am I missing something, or am I relegated to having widgets only at the bottom of these posts?

    The blog I need help with is leading21.wordpress.com.

  2. Oh, and yes, I looked at the 2011 Theme article on the WordPress site, which was about the only suggestion I gleaned from a brief search of the forum.... thanks for the help!

  3. The theme is operating the way it is designed to operate. There is no sidebar on single posts in this theme. I find this article to be very helpful when working with the Twenty Eleven theme.

  4. Thanks, timethief. I appreciate your help. Is there some sort of resource that provides information in a summary format for such mechanical aspects of themes, or does one have to just slog through the theme descriptions?

    BTW, I checked out your blog. It is lovely and very useful. Thanks for adding value to this community!

  5. There is a features filter in the searchbox in the Themes Forum here http://theme.wordpress.com/ Click "find a theme".
