I have a feeling that this may be one of those very obvious things I'm overlooking but nevertheless I can't seem to figure this out. :)  I want my posts to be full width.   I tried setting the Posts Page Layout Mode to fullwidth but it still is defaulting to one sidebar on the right (although it's empty).  I can manually change on every post but this site will have several authors so I want to avoid having to explain that extra step to everyone.  Isn't there a way to fix this?  I can't sent link bc this is an intranet but if you need screenshot let me know.

 

Thanks and Happy New Year!

-Beth

Is your blog page the homepage or is your homepage set to be a static page?

When you edit the page for your Blog (in WordPress page editor), what are the Layout settings in the PageLines Meta Settings? Is the layout set to be full width?

The post layout mode is blog layout and the post page layout mode is set to full width.  I'm using PlatformPro.  I don't know what version - can't seem to find that info...

Ah, ok. Sorry about that, I thought you were using PageLines Framework. To check the version info, go to Appearance > Themes. The latest version is 1.6.0.

Ok thx. I'm on 1.5.3.  I did notice the blub at the top about upgrading to 1.6.0 but don't see where to do that.  It's not under misc settings....  Also I'm on Wordpress 3.5. Thx for your help!

I haven't gotten an answer yet....  I'm trying to figure out why my posts pages are displaying full width despite being set that way.

It would help to have a live link we can look at. Otherwise, we can't take a closer look at it and see what the issue is.

Phooh.  I can't sent link bc this is a private intranet.  Guess I'll just have to manually set every post to full width.  Just seems like setting the post page layout mode to full width would work.  Thanks for your time anyway!

Hi there, I've not used Platform previously but checking on the legacy docs there's an option for 'single post content area' in the layout dropdown. See - http://www.pagelines...tions-templates which might be able to help further.
