    I’m using the Portfolio pages in the Executive theme but can’t figure out how to add a sidebar to an interior Portfolio page. I removed the PHP code that makes the single-portfolio.php go full screen but I can’t add a sidebar.

    Dose anyone have a fix for this?

    It’s an interior page like this: http://www.careerbuildercommunications.com/speakersbureau/portfolio/jennifer-seith/

    There’s a space for a sidebar but nothing shows up.

    Do you see the sidebar on the Widget page? If so, did you drag anything into it?

    I did and it doesn’t appear. I sent in a Helpdesk request and they said they can’t help and to use the forums.

    I even added a custom sidebars widget hoping that would populate a sidebar but it doesn’t. I would modify the code but I’m not sure where to start.

    Which custom sidebars widget did you use? Did you use the Genesis Simple Sidebars plugin?

    I used a plug-in called Custom Sidebars which didn’t work and I just tried Genesis Simple Sidebars which didn’t work.

    Essentially, all you need to do is remove this line from single-portfolio.php

    [php] /** Force full width content layout */
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout’, ‘__genesis_return_full_width_content’ );[/php]

    Then, if you want to add layout support to the portfolio post type, just change the supports line in functions.php to add genesis-layouts.

    [php]‘supports’ => array( ‘title’, ‘editor’, ‘author’, ‘thumbnail’, ‘excerpt’, ‘trackbacks’, ‘custom-fields’, ‘comments’, ‘revisions’, ‘page-attributes’, ‘genesis-seo’, ‘genesis-layouts’ ),[/php]

    Thanks Jen! I would have never come up with that solution.
