Site Layout For Entire Pages
You can change your Layout setting from the Customize menu (Appearance > Customize > Theme settings > Site Layout).
The default layout is : Content – Primary Sidebar. You do not need to change anything if you do not want to switch the sidebar position.
Changing this will change the entire page.
Different Site Layout For Spesific Page
You can choose a specific layout setting for each page or post. To do this, go to the page/post you want to change (not the Customizer)
See image bellow, click the G icon to make the panel show up, scroll down until you see “Layout”. Select which layout you want to have for that specific page / post. For example, for About page, you want full width layout with no sidebar, then choose “Full width content”.
