  • Left Sidebar: A Layout where your widget sidebar is displayed on the left side of content.
  • Right Sidebar: A Layout where your widget sidebar is displayed on the right side of content.

By Default, Munk uses the left sidebar layout and if you select a different layout in here then it will be applied for all the archives pages of your site including blog home, category, tag and author archives as well as search results page.
