Widgets - THEME Twenty Eleven

  1. Hi, I would like to create widgets in my pages THEME Twenty Eleven.

    It was possible only for the starting page.

    Other pages from my menu get the messages, trying to create a widget : 'Your theme has 2 other widget areas, but this particular page doesn’t display them. You can navigate to other pages on your site while using the Customizer to view and edit the widgets displayed on those pages.'

    Please help : is there any other way to create a widget for all the other pages from the menu -THEME Twenty Eleven? I don't like it without widgets. It looks not nice.

    Thank you for the answer.

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

  2. Hi,

    The five widget areas available on the Twenty Eleven theme are as follows:

    1. Main Sidebar -- This widget area displays on static pages with the Sidebar Template assigned to them, as well as on the blog page and archives pages. It doesn't display on posts, or on pages on which either the Showcase or Default Templates have been assigned.

    2. Showcase Sidebar -- This widget area is specially designed to display on pages that have the the Showcase Template assigned to them.

    3.-5. Footer Areas One, Two, and Three -- In my tests, I found that widgets inserted into any of these widget areas will display on all posts, pages, the blog page, and archives pages, as well as search results.

    If you prefer the Main Sidebar widget area, then you must assign pages on which you want widgets in this widget area to appear to the Sidebar Template. See the Template section of the Page Attributes support page for relevant information on selecting a page template on themes that have optional page templates.
