Side Bar on Blog only

    How would I add a sidebar widget to only my blog page? I want to show latest posts etc in the widget but I don’t want the sidebar on any of my other pages.

    Also, how do I change the font in the blog?

    Hi Simon

    Thanks for reaching out.

    You can add widgets to the sidebar widget area at Appearance > Widgets > Sidebar. Once that’s done, go to each of your pages and set the page template drop-down menu to Full Width. That’ll ensure that no sidebar is displayed on each page you select this page template on.


    Another option for more granular widget display control is: Jetpack Widget Visibility. This module will let you set positive or negative display conditions for each widget. If you’re activating Jetpack for the first time I usually suggest doing a bulk deactivation of all modules at Jetpack > Settings and then choose the modules you want to make us of.

    Let me know how it goes 🙂



    Thanks Andrew, excellent support as always.

    What about blog font?

    Super 🙂 Glad to hear you’ve been making progress.

    You change the font in the blog section of your site by adding the following to Appearance > Custom CSS:

    /* Blog */
    .blog .page-header ~ .container,
    .archive .page-header ~ .container,
    .single .page-header ~ .container {
    	font-family: Arial, "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, sans-serif;

    That’ll change the font of everything between the page header and the footer. I might need a bit of clarification to get this properly dialled in.
