    The standard layout on my site (built from the Agency theme) is full-width. This BLOG page is set to show the primary sidebar on the right. I’d like the posts to show the primary sidebar as well while maintaining the default layout to be full-width. I’m sure it’s possible and would appreciate any assistance.

    Is it also possible to show a sidebar (possibly different than the primary sidebar) depending on what category the post is in?

    Thanks so much for your help!



    Go to edit your post, and see if the “Layout Settings” panel is there. If not, click on “Screen Options” at the top right, and click the checkbox to enable it.

    That will allow you to select your layout on a post by post basis.

    As for different sidebars for different categories, there are two ways that I frequently use: either create custom templates for each category with a different sidebar in use, or use the default sidebars and the plugin Dynamic Widgets to choose which ones appear in which locations.
