Twenty Seventeen is the official WordPress theme in 2017 and it’s really awesome, but unfortunately it has no way to display a sidebar on pages 🙁
Let’s fix that.
Sidebar on all the pages
This tiny plugin will add the default sidebar to all the pages, including the front page! You don’t have to touch a single line of code, and it works for Twenty Seventeen child themes too.
For best results, go to Customize > Theme Options and set Page Layout to One Column.
Sidebar on individual pages
If you want your page sidebar to differ from your post sidebar, it is recommended to also install Content Aware Sidebars in addition to this plugin. That will allow you to show and hide widget areas on a wide range of conditions, giving you complete control over your sidebar.
- Navigate to ‘Plugins > Add New’
- Search for ‘page sidebar for twentyseventeen’
- Install and activate the plugin
- That’s it! Sidebar will now be displayed on all pages
Will this plugin work with my theme?
This plugin only works for the Twenty Seventeen theme and its child themes. Try installing it while using another theme, and you’ll see it do… nothing at all.
This plugin adds the default sidebar to all pages. If you want to display or hide different sidebars on different pages, we recommend installing Content Aware Sidebars as well.
Due to limitations in the theme, the front page sidebar will not be displayed if using the Front Page Sections feature.
Not with this plugin, it simply adds the Blog Sidebar to all pages.
