want main sidebar to appear with all posts

    I am using theme Twenty Eleven and would like my main sidebar to appear with all new posts, so new users get to see the widgets. Currently, when I do a new post, users can only see widgets by clicking on homepage. Can this be modified so users can see widgets on iPads and iPhones as well?

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



    Hey Patricia,

    The Twenty Eleven theme does not show a sidebar on single post pages. To the best of my knowledge, there’s no way around that on WordPress.com.

    I suggest checking out some other themes. Look through the demos for a theme that you like and shows the sidebar on single post pages: http://theme.wordpress.com

    As for the widgets displaying on mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android, etc…) that’ll depend on your mobile theme settings.

    You can turn off the WordPress.com mobile theme by going to Appearance > Mobile and changing Enable Mobile Theme to No. This will make mobile devices load up whatever theme you’re using, and assuming that theme displays widgets on mobile devices, you should be set.

    Hope that all makes sense. :)



    Thanks for your help Andy. Would you have any idea what to search for to find a theme like you describe? There are so many themes available and it is hard to see whether they will show a sidebar on single post pages. Thanks for your very helpful advice!
