Widget

  1. Hi I have added widgets to my side bar however they do not display on my pages

    I have read all the question and answers on the subject and i cant figure the reason why it must be something wrong with the template?

    The blog I need help with is thetarotman1.wordpress.com.

    Please read this detailed article on your theme: The workings of Duster / Twenty Eleven http://href.li/?http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/workings-of-duster/

    There is no sidebar on single posts when displayed on their own pages in the Twenty Eleven theme. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentytwelve/

    And no widgets can display on any page in Twenty Eleven unless you select "sidebar template" for in the Page Attributes module.

    All widgets are found here > Appearance > Widgets
    Also note that some widgets have visibility settings which are used to define which pages they will appear on.

  3. In reference to the top navigation menu you have created I believe you will want to rethink it.

    Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is
    (1) there is only one page we can post to in any blog and
    (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update.

    Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with new posts.

    By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into the custom menu.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    Note that there are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
