If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Is it posible to have ONE sidebar for the Home/Front page and all the other pages with TWO sidebars?
Short answer NO
Long answer yes but would require you to make a lot of modifications as I believe the code restrict you to only wide, 1 or 2 columns with one choice for the whole site. I suppose you need to create new templates…is that right James? More flexibility is always better
I think this can be easilky achieved by replacing following code in sidebar.php
if($k_option['includes']['sidebarCount'] != 2) $sidebarSize = ' fullwidth_sidebar';
if($k_option['includes']['sidebarCount'] != 2 || is_home()) $sidebarSize = ' fullwidth_sidebar';
So you get fullwidth sidebar IF you have activate only one sidebar in options menu OR if you’re on your homepage.
In your options menu you need to activate 2 sidebars to make this solution work.
@Monsoon: Another template wouldn’t help because the sidebar.php is called via get_sidebar – you would need to copy and paste the sidebar.php code to your new template and remove get_sidebar function.
Sweet thank Dude.
Now lets up the ante…what if you want to assign a different sidebar to posts or pages? Lets say 2 sidebars on the homepage and on back pages being able to chose between one large, one medium or two small sidebars. I know I would love to have that on my pages… more flexibility. Higher level pages get 2 sidebars, one level down they get a medium sidebar and 3 level down thy get a single small sidebar.
I am still trying to make that work but that amount of flexibility would kick ass
