Something else I missed when looking at themes for my new blog was post template options.
Seems as though the Twenty Eleven theme won’t display the sidebar when viewing a post/article.
Thankfully, it’s not a huge modification and there is lot’s out there on how to do it.
Basically, you modify the theme’s single.php file and add the get_sidebar() function. But that in itself will not be enough, you need to adjust some CSS as well.
I had tried with just the get_sidebar() modification… but after a quick search I found an example.
Check out Zeaks “ADD SIDEBAR TO POST VIEW IN TWENTY ELEVEN THEME” for an example on how to modify the CSS to make this work.
I used it as a reference and it worked great.
