Description (last modified by sabernhardt)


I have 2 problems with twentyseventeen.

1. When I change the section by customizer, theme options, frontpage sections, I see the right content, but when I want to save, it's all gone and blank again. I saw some people had the same issue, but no solution. Can anybody help?

  1. The sidebar in the appearance widgets, is filled with search and so on. But it only disappears at the posts, not in the main menu. And the posts disappear as a page and not in the sidebar.

Anybody any idea how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance,

Sorry, posts appear as a page, not disappear... This is because I had no other choice then to put it in the menu, as posts otherwise would not be visable at all.

The first problem is resolved by deactivating plugin WPGlobus, then changing the section and save and then reactivating WPGlobus. Thanks to AmberSLT

The second problem still exists.

Sorry for the very late response. This might have been better in the support forums.

Do I understand correctly that you wanted the widgets—including the Recent Posts links widget—to appear on every page (whether it is a Post or Page)? If so, the easiest method might be moving any widget you want on all pages from the Blog Sidebar widget area to one of the two Footer areas. Another method involves creating a child theme and editing the template file.
