Sidebar Layout

The following layout options are available for the sidebar:

  • left sidebar
  • right sidebar
  • no sidebar.

If you select the left/right layout, you can then select which of the widget areas you want to display in the sidebar.

Also, you have the option of hiding the sidebar for single pages, thus, this will appear only on the archive page.

You can set the blog to be displayed in full-width layout or you can use the default layout.
