    I have the site default set to no side bar but how do I add one to say the post page. There doesn’t seem to be any option per page to turn on the side bar at all. I can select a side bar say ‘Optional Sidebar 3″ instead of default, but no sidebar appears even though there is something in that sidebar.
    Also: On my post page
    http://test.shields.ca/post-archives/
    Only one category is appearing. I think they were all there at one time, but for the life of me I can’t find where I changed that setting.

    @fireflywebs: To have sidebars on specific page
    Go to => Dashboard => Pages => Edit a page => On right hand side you will see Page Attributes, under Template: you can select your option and Publish.

    To have meta displayed on your posts page
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Layout Options => Archive Display Meta => Select Show Meta and Publish.

    Let me know if this helps you out!

    I have a sidebar selected under ‘Select Sidebar” under the template on the page in question, but no sidebar is showing (following doing the publish).
    On EVERY page there is the ‘default side bar’ in this field, but no sidebar appears on ANY page even though there are widgets in that sidebar because I have the site set to ‘NO sidebar’. I don’t see how to activate the sidebar for any particular page… there doesn’t seem to be that option.

    It wasn’t the meta I wanted turned on. It’s that only one category of posts is on my main post page. How do I turn on the rest?

    I have looked everywhere for a setting. This is a bug. All the posts except for my category called ‘recent updates’ do not appear on the post page at all. Further I have another ticket here (https://catchthemes.com/support-forum/topic/recent-posts-on-home-page/#post-232775) which is also an issue.
    However, the posts were appearing on the post page I think. Now they are gone.

    Update. One more thing.
    I often use the Page Builder (Site Origin) option for ‘post loops’. It’s a page widget to call in certain post categories to a page.
    When I pull that into a page I get the message
    “Your theme doesn’t have any post loops.”
    I have never had this before with this widget.

    This wasn’t attempted until now so it hasn’t been a conflict to cause the above issue.

    All the sidebars (on each page) are not listed, only Optional one, two or three.
    I am trying to get a sidebar on my post page for instance. I have a widget in ALL the sidebars in widgets, but how to turn on sidebars for the page is the issue. There is only ‘select sidebar’ and no option under page attributes for a layout.

    Also, note the second issue on this ticket for post loops, and the fact that all the posts but one category have disappeared.

    These are HIGH Priority for me.

    My sidebar issue only appears to involve the post page. I found the setting for the others pages under page attributes.
    The other 2 issues are also part of this ticket.

    @fireflywebs: Hello there,
    The Select Sidebar option in each post/page will work if you change Template metabox option on post/page to Left or Right Sidebar. This should work.

    Only one category of post showing up on your site.
    For that
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Homepage/Front page Settings => Turn on Display Recent Posts/Content on homepage then you should see Categories Select Box and Select All Categories
    and then you can again turn off Display Recent Posts/Content on homepage and Publish.

    Can you please explain what you are trying to do with Page Builder (Site Origin)?

    Let me know if this resolves your issue.
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    I do not see a Template metabox option on the post page where there is an option of left or right sidebar. It shows only “select sidebar” and the dropdown shows default, or optional sidebar one, two, or three.’

    Only one category of post showing up on your site.
    For that
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Homepage/Front page Settings => Turn on Display Recent Posts/Content on homepage then you should see Categories Select Box and Select All Categories
    and then you can again turn off Display Recent Posts/Content on homepage and Publish.

    Yes, that worked. Thanks.

    With Page Builder turned on a page, there is a widget option called ‘Post Loop”. If you pull that widget into a page row you can then set up the post loop options you desire. IE a category of post. However, with this theme I get the message ‘your theme doesn’t have any post loops.’ I don’t understand why other Catch themes do and this one doesn’t.

    For the post loop. I have added post loop to the About Us page as a test. If you go there you will see what I mean. See second row (click edit on the actual box that says Post Loop.)

    This screen shot will show what it SHOULD allow me to do.

    I took this test screen shot from another site which is using the Catch Theme “Clean Education Pro”

    See 2 comments above since your post yesterday.
    Also. PLEASE!! log into the account that I sent you the credentials for earlier
    (test.shields.ca)
    And confirm for yourself that there is no option for a side bar on the Post Page.

    So there are about 4 bugs that need to be corrected in the next update for the template…. which I hope is very soon.

    1) The home page (if a static page) will not accept a category for posts, instead it only shows them all, no matter what category is selected.
    2) There needs to be a difference between what posts go on the home page and what goes on the post page. There doesn’t seem to be a way to do that since there is only the single setting on the Homepage/Front page.
    3) There is no way to put a side bar on the post page. No option exists under page attributes as with the other pages.
    4) Page Builder Plugin (with the Site Origin Widgets). The Post Loop Widget will not work. Error message says there is no post loop for the template, yet every other Catch template allows it. I have become accustomed to using this widget.

    If you can give me a work around for any of these now I would appreciate it. Can you tell me when the updated theme will be issued?
