How to stop the 2011 theme from adding the body class singular to pages and single posts

Add this code to your functions.php file. you will have to add the sidebar into your PHP templates. There is more information in this turorial where I grabbed the code below. http://www.transformationpowertools.com/wordpress/twenty-eleven-sidebar-on-single-posts-and-pages

add_filter('body_class', 'blacklist_body_class', 20, 2);
function blacklist_body_class($wp_classes, $extra_classes) {
if( is_single() || is_page() ) :
// List of the classes to remove from the WP generated classes
$blacklist = array('singular');
// Filter the body classes
  foreach( $blacklist as $val ) {
    if (!in_array($val, $wp_classes)) : continue;
    else:
      foreach($wp_classes as $key => $value) {
      if ($value == $val) unset($wp_classes[$key]);
      }
    endif;
  }
endif;   // Add the extra classes back untouched
return array_merge($wp_classes, (array) $extra_classes);
}	

To leave the pages as full width, and only add sidebar to single.php use this slightly different code.

add_filter('body_class', 'blacklist_body_class', 20, 2);
function blacklist_body_class($wp_classes, $extra_classes) {
if( is_single() ) :
// List of the classes to remove from the WP generated classes
$blacklist = array('singular');
// Filter the body classes
  foreach( $blacklist as $val ) {
    if (!in_array($val, $wp_classes)) : continue;
    else:
      foreach($wp_classes as $key => $value) {
      if ($value == $val) unset($wp_classes[$key]);
      }
    endif;
  }
endif;   // Add the extra classes back untouched
return array_merge($wp_classes, (array) $extra_classes);
}
