Change templates

Some themes come with more than one template which allows you to, for example, choose whether a given page will have a sidebar or be full width. To illustrate how this feature works, search for, install, and activate a theme named Azul Silver.

  1. Create a new page.
  2. On the right side of the editor, click the arrow beside Page Attributes and  choose the Custom Sidebar Template.
  3. Publish the page.
  4. At this point it may not be obvious that you have a sidebar. To make it more apparent, visit your widgets and drag a widget to the custom sidebar. Now you should have a visible sidebar on your new page.
  5. Visit some of your other pages that (by default) are using the default template and notice that they have no sidebar.
  6. Switch the new page to the default template and notice that its sidebar also disappears.
  7. That's it!
