Hey, I am trying to use a layout that will have a left sidebar and right main content area. I have this layout selected both in the page lines layout editor and in the individual page meta settings but no joy. I would like to use the left sidebar to display a vertical menu with a custom background. I am trying to use a content box to do this but it isn't working. Any ideas?

@vrtkl1

Take a look at this screen cap:

Do you have that checked?

Also, if you're trying to display a content box in the sidebar, give it a class in its meta settings so you can style it appropriately (background, etc) through CSS.

Also, this

Hope this helps!

Thanks Henry. Still a no go. I looked at the wiki and it all makes sense so I'm stumped as to what is going on.

If you try setting a different page layout (i.e. full content area with no sidebar), does the setting work?
