    Hi,

    why does the sidebar on the author pages change when there are no posts to be displayed for that author yet? And how can we fix that?

    We do have guest authors on our blog on a regularly basis. When they have allready published posts, their author’s pages show a sidebar with more information about our blog – exactly the way that we want to have it. If an author does not have a published post yet, the sidebar on the author’s page is somehow automatically generated. And even worse, those automatically generated pagelinks in the sidebar show pages that are not meant to be shown publicly in such way (e. g. various “Thank you” pages for different occasions. How can we display the correct sidebar on those pages as well?

    All the best,
    Patrick

    Hey microtool,

    check in your widget area which sidebar gets displayed on it.

    Send us admin access, if you still need help with this.

    Best regards,

    Hi Andy,

    no ‘defined’ sidebar gets displayed on it, that is the problem. The sidebar is automatically generated instead, when an author does not have made any posts yet and when his/her list is empty. So why are author pages with no entries displayed with a different sidebar as to author pages with entries? I would think that both share the same sidebar.

    Thanks for any other ideas,
    Patrick

    Hi,

    edit your page in question and scroll down, while looking on the right side for “Layout->Sidebar Settings” and choose “No sidebar”.

    Best regards,
    Andy
