How do I edit the design of the single blog post page? I want to remove the sidebar and the “Leave a Reply” form.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Thanks for reaching out and thanks for you question on customizing a single blog post. Can you link your website URL in the thread so that we can inspect the site and let you know what needs to be done.
Also, are you using Crio Pro WordPress theme, or are you using a different BoldGrid theme?
We look forward to hearing from you!December 13, 2021 at 2:23 pm #45964Donald GerardGuest
Thanks for responding. The website is https://re-presentmedia.org/. We’re using the Callaway theme from BoldGrid.December 13, 2021 at 2:38 pm #46040Joseph WKeymaster
The following JS snippet changes the elements responsible for controlling the width of the header and footer to use a fixed width, like your page content, instead of the full width design.
jQuery('.site-header .bgtfw, .site-footer .bgtfw').removeClass('container-fluid').addClass('container');
Enter that code into the Custom JS area located under the Advanced section of the Customizer to apply the fix to your website.
Please let us know if you have any other questions for us Donald, we are always happy to help!December 13, 2021 at 3:39 pm #46046Donald GerardGuest
Thanks for responding. Please explain how that snippet of JS will help remove the sidebar from the single post page.

Sorry about the mixup Donald, I was responding to your other topic thread and it seems I accidentally posted that response here.
The sidebar for blog pages in Callaway can be disabled by applying some PHP filters to the theme framework responsible for displaying that content. We have an article that outlines how to disable the blog sidebar along with the code snippets you will need to make the adjustments. The article references the GridOne theme directly but the steps will work for Callaway as well.
The reply form is automatically added to any Post that has comments enabled and disabling comments for the post will remove that form. You can turn off comments for an individual post by navigating to Posts > All Posts in the WordPress admin and then clicking the Quick Edit option under the desired Post in that list. Look for the Allow Comments checkbox and make sure that it is not enabled.
There is also a global option under Settings > Discussion in your WordPress admin that allows you choose if comments are enabled for new Posts created on your website, however changing this setting will not deactivate comments on existing Posts.
Please let us know if you have any other questions Donald!December 13, 2021 at 4:58 pm #46054Donald GerardGuest
Thanks, that worked! Sidebar and comments on single blog post page are gone.December 20, 2021 at 4:06 pm #46234Donald GerardGuest
Question: If I want the sidebar widget to appear on the single blog post page, how do I change which links appear in the sidebar widget?
Thanks in advance,
DonaldDecember 20, 2021 at 4:20 pm #46293
If you would like to change the links that appear in your sidebar widget you can do so in the customizer inside of the Widgets section. Just click the Sidebar widget and add or remove any link you would like using the Widget options.December 21, 2021 at 6:51 am #46296Donald GerardGuest
Thank you, sir! Yeah, this Callaway theme is cantankerous. Perhaps I can convince the website owner to move to Crio!December 21, 2021 at 6:51 am #46297Donald GerardGuest
Thanks!December 21, 2021 at 6:58 am #46305
You’re most certainly welcome Donald! Crio is an awesome theme and I think you’ll find the controls powerful but also familiar to Callaway. If you have any questions about Crio or any of our BoldGrid products we’re always here to help!
