Hi everybody and thanks again.

 

 

Inspired by some blogs layout like this

I have set my default blog page with 3 coloumns with 2 sidebars on the right:

 

the first sidebar shows most popular post, provided by a plugin,

 

while the secondary sidebar shows my subscribing form

 

 

   

    The problem came when I wanted to set the

 

blog post page default to a classic 2 coloumn page,

 

showing only the secondary sidebar , which is essential

 

for my listbuilding.

 

 

Unfourtunally I couldn't do that, nor by Drag and drop section,

 

neither through the single post settings.

 

Posts only shows the primary sidebar.

 

 

Can you tell me if any solution is possible?

 

I hope I only missed some setting option...

Hi,

 

What you will need to do is goto Drag & Drop and add the Secondary Sidebar to the SB1 area. You should now have Primary and Secondary in SB1, SB1 is always used in 2 column layouts such as sidebar left or sidebar right, SB2 is only used when the layout has 2 sidebars.

 

You will then need to hide the Primary Sidebar on the pages your Blog post pages.

sorry, but I'm afraid I didn't get it:

 

did you mean setting SB1 (in drag and drop section) with

 

both primary and secondary sidebar?

 

By doing that, the blog appears

 

with sidebar 2 under sidebar 1 one in the second coloumn...it's a mess.

 

 

I am showing you the setting shotscreen here;

I mentioned above that in doing this you have both Primary and Secondary appearing together. Therefore, you will need to hide the Primary Sidebar.

 

Goto PageLines > Page Options > Blog, in the check list for all sections in each template area, click on SB1 and then check hide Primary Sidebar. This will now remove the Primary sidebar from you Blog page, you will have to do the same for each of your templates, unless you want to have both Primary and Secondary appearing together.

yes, thanks.

 

Done, but the result is far from the solution I had in mind.

 

In fact, by following your instructions, the front blog page only

 

shows  the secondary sidebar....

 

 

Forgive me for being didascalic, but just to be sure to communicate the best,

 

I have pasted here a simple picture of what I'd like to do,

On the settings for The blog page - simply have both sidebars active

 

and on the single post page hide the primary sidebar by putting a tick in the hide primary sidebar.
