To clarify, you'd like the same posts page formatting to be present on all pages even though those pages are normal pages instead of blog pages?

What kind of subpages are you referring to, though? Are they regular child pages?

Hi Catrina, They are regular child pages. When there is no static homepage you get two columns with the latest post. On a regular page, you get one columm and the posts are after a other. I want to display two post beside eachother like a magazine. I hope so that anyone can help me. Greetz, Ren?©

Hi, The page you are trying to recreate on -

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

Is simply a page called Blog, which has been set in the Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Settings > Reading > Static Page > Post Page and has Magazine mode enabled, with two full width posts set. The full width post settings currently doesn't work on Category or Archives pages. As you can see from here:

Hello there again :) I have another question. I have checked the magezine mode in the site options - blog and post. that i understand is only for the homepage. right? When you go to the page options i see the following options: Site Defaults Blog Page Archive Page Category Page Search Results Tag Listing Author Posts 404 Page Vanilla Mediawiki I guess these are the page types right? So actually what i want to create are category pages with posts in the page. And when i go to the template set up i see all the page options and 5 templates. When i click on one of the templates i can insert content options. And i see on the right another content area. and have another choise of options. But when i want to make a new page i can only choose for one of the five templates.. And not one of the page options. And i do not have the choise to set the content area.. This i think is a bit strange. Or pherhapse i'm doing something wrong. But when you have all the options, like page options and template options. Why cant i choose one of them when i make a new page? Can you tell me more about that? And if i can not choose the page options when i start a new page, where can i choose one of the options? Best regards, Sandra. ;;)

Actually you appear to have only one post in that topic. That is in magazine mode. You may have the sidebar hidden in Page Options, preventing you from seeing the sidebar, and making it look like it's full width. Rest assured, that's a magazine mode post. Category pages are always in magazine mode by default.

Hi,

The filter should have been added now to core. So can you add this code to your child themes function.php file or if you're using the PageLines Customisation plugin, add it to the plugins functions.php file.

@PageLines Rockstar is it possible to apply this filter to specific categories rather than all of them?
