If I make a 2 column blog with no sidebar and create a blog page for the top menu bar do I make the posts pages or post? How do I get them to appear under the blog page dropdown menu?

Hi Neil,

How to remove a sidebar? First, log into your WordPress dashboard. Click Appearance, Widgets on the left side of your dashboard. Find the Sidebar area. Enlarge the widget section by clicking the down arrow, click Delete. Do these steps until you’ve deleted all the widgets under the Sidebar area.

How to make a 2 column blog? You can do it in the Post/Page editor, go down at the bottom you will see Layout Metabox. You choose a 2 column layout for your post layout from here.

Cheers,

Florentino

The free GeneratePress that I had didn't allow 2 columns. The upgraded paid version does.
You set it in the customizer.

I have GP on my blog with 2 columns but I haven't tried to see what it would look like if I eliminate the sidebar. I doubt remember how I made it do 2 columns.🤣

Hello!

You can use short codes. Find it on plug-in section just add new find Shortcodes Ultimate, Install and then activate.

If you want to minimize or remove your sidebars just go to the lower part of your edit post you can see there Side bar layouts choose "Full Width" or "Full width centered"

All the Best!

To make them appear in your blogroll you'll need them to be published as posts, not pages.

To create a 2 column blogroll you'll need a theme that has that option such as GeneratePress. e.g. marionblackonline.com

If you have a static page as your home page then publish an empty page titled Blog and WordPress will automatically add your posts to the page as required. Add the Blog page to your menu. Don't try to list all your content in your menu, you'll soon run out of room.

Thanks. I'm using Generate Press. I had already created a Blog page on the top navigation bar. I'll check out your training. It really helped me understand the block editor. Do you have any training for Elementor?

I've only just started using Elementor so I've only got one training video so far I've been using Thrive Architect.
