The Layout settings are not working for the Blog page on this site:
They are currently set to:
Sidebars (none), Footer Widgets (0), Disable Elements (Secondary Menu), Page Header (Hero)
The same settings work fine on the blog posts and Main page.
Any ideas?GeneratePress 2.1.3GP Premium 1.6.2July 9, 2018 at 2:35 pm #619675DavidStaffCustomer Support
WordPress doesn’t accept input from meta boxes on the blog page. You can disable the sidebars for the blog page in Customiser > Layout > Sidebars.
Are you using sidebars, footer widgets, secondary menu anywhere else on the site? As they can all be disabled in the Customiser. If you are then we can throw a little bit of code at it ( or wait for GP 1.7 which is in Beta where this is super simple ).July 9, 2018 at 11:10 pm #619865Patrick
Thanks for the fast reply!
By customiser do you mean this?:
I am not using sidebars anywhere right now.
Would be nice to have the option though (it is an online course sit, so the course lessons might benefit from sidebars).July 10, 2018 at 2:27 am #619980DavidStaffCustomer SupportJuly 10, 2018 at 2:44 am #619991Patrick
So I used Appearance > Customize to disable the sidebars, and footer widgets globally.
But why do the Layout controls (like disable secondary navigation) of the Post Page not work?
I have different menus for different pages, so that cannot be handled globally.July 10, 2018 at 3:53 am #620045DavidStaffCustomer Support
The Layout module is a meta box, and unfortunately they won’t work on Blog / Archive pages, as they don’t have a page ID that can be queried.
The good news is, GPP 1.7 which is currently in Beta, introduces a new module called Elements, one of those Elements is the Layout module. This will come with Display Rules, so it will be super easy to assign different settings for individual posts / pages / templates (blog / archives etc).

Looking forward to 1.7!
Thanks for the help 🙂July 10, 2018 at 4:32 am #620065DavidStaffCustomer Support
You’re welcome! Have an explore of the Customiser, note that under Layout there is a specific Blog section that adds lots of functions, its also where Featured Image settings are controlled globally 🙂
