    I’m using the latest version of Business Line downloaded from your site (as linked here)

    I have tried to turn off the Archive Widget on Posts but it does not work. I’ve tried every possible combination and option I can find in the WordPress dashboard. Nothing works. Instead I keep getting this:

    The Meta widget behaves equally – refusing to be removed on Posts. They will however obey and not be shown on ‘Posts page’. [This persistent behaviour is not related to role of user or any other feature].

    If I switch to Twenty fourteen theme, all widgets obey perfectly. This leads me to think that it may be a theme issue with Business line.

    I’m grateful for your guidance on this. Many thanks.

    You can control the WidGets from Appearance > WiDGets

    You Can set Full Layout from Appearance > Business Line Options > General Options

    You can set Full Width Template during Page Editing/Creation

    Yes – I should have said I did all that and that I’m quite adept at configuring WordPress and you theme.

    I’m not interested in Full Layout or Full Width Template.

    The problem remains the same as described. Kindly look at it.

    All that does is obliterate the sidebar. Have you actually checked the issue at all?

    Obliterating the sidebar means that I cannot have widgets on the Home page AND no widgets on Post pages (as is possible in Twenty Fourteen).

    And just to be clear I am using the Widgets controls outside of the theme as well – but that does not help.

    All themes may not work in the same way. Business Line has one sidebar scope for all pages which is applicable for all the pages, posts etc. You may find some plugins which can control the way how widgets will be shown in different pages.

    I can’t find your last response telling me to ‘select the red marked option’

    I’ve now tried all combinations on that page and on Widgets controls in WordPress.
    I cannot achieve in one setting:
    1. No widgets on Home Page – AND –
    2. Widgets on individual Posts
    [As is achievable on the WordPress Twenty Fourteen theme].

    If there is a way to achieve what I want in the CURRENT (unmodified) theme version, then please spell it out.

    Right.. so I was right.. after all the time wasting. The theme cannot in it’s current configuration achieve what I want. My time has been wasted because had Business Line been properly compared to Twenty Fourteen in the first post I made, the same conclusion would have been arrived at earlier – and my time not wasted, with elementary superficial responses.

    The Theme can show Full Width Layout without the Sidebar. We focused on this with an Red Arrow in our Screenshot. For pages it is possible to use Full Width Templates, too.

    Different Themes have different features and functionalists. A Theme may not fulfill all requirements users may have. Then users should search for plugins or customize the Theme for their purposes. There are various plugins which can show specific widgets in specific pages/posts. These are not Theme Issues, right? These are features which may have or many not have in a Theme.

    Twenty Fourteen has two sidebars. One is for main layout and one is for contents. The difference is Twenty Fourteen doesn’t show any default WidGets when the Sidebar remains empty. But the space is also occupied by the sidebar. You can also remove the default widgets from Business Line simply replace the whole code of sidebar.php with the following. Thus if you don’t use any WidGets in the Primary Sidebar the Sidebar will be empty.
