    Hi,

    I have modified the theme with bigger width (960px) and with right sidebar.

    You can get more information here http://blog.pixelthemes.com/freebies/buttercream-wordpress-theme-with-right-sidebar/

    Thank you,

    Awesome. That's exactly what I was looking for.

    However, I just downloaded and installed it and the sidebar isn't showing. Do I activate it somewhere?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Shelley,

    In the admin, Please go to Appearance -> Widgets.

    There you can add widget items to the "Right Side Bar".

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you,

    Hi vijayrajesh,

    Thanks for your message. I have the widgets in the right side bar. Here's a screen shot of my settings: http://www.lettersets.com/example1.jpg

    However, the widgets are showing up at the bottom of the centre column as shown here and there is no sidebar: http://www.lettersets.com/example2.jpg

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks for your assistance. I really like the preview of the edited version you made and I hope I will be able to get it to function correctly.

    vijayrajesh above really helped me with getting this right - thank you for your quick and effecicient help - will recommend you!

    For other people trying to implement the edited buttercream theme with a sidebar and to make it function in IE7 and lower, edit the ie.css file in the layouts folder to the following:

    #masthead hgroup {
    	width: 960px;
    }
    .main-navigation,
    #main,
    #content {
    	width: 960px;
    }
    
    #content
    	{
    		width:650px;
    		float:left;
    	}
    .navbar {
    	border-top: 2px solid #422619;
    	position: fixed;
    }
    #main,
    #masthead hgroup {
    	border-left: 4px solid #ede9ce;
    	border-right: 4px solid #ede9ce;
    }
    #header-menu {
    	width: 75%;
    }
    #header-menu ul.menu {
    	float: left;
    }
    #header-menu ul.menu ul li {
    	width: 120px;
    }
    #header-menu ul.menu li:hover > ul {
    	visibility: visible;
    }
    h1.site-title a {
    	font-size: 100%;
    }
    .post-date {
    	right: -32px;
    }
    a.post-edit-link,
    a.comment-edit-link,
    .search .page a.post-edit-link {
    	margin-right: -17px;
    }
    #header-image {
    	margin: 30px auto -60px auto;
    	display: block;
    	z-index: 100;
    	position: relative;
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    	width: 850px;
    	height: 265px;
    }
    #header-imagesm {
    	display: none;
    }
    .bluebar {
    	display: none;
    }
    .entry-content img {
    	max-width: 560px;
    }
    .sidebars {
    	width: 600px;
    	margin-top: 30px;
    }
    .widget-area {
    	width: 33%;
    	display: table-cell;
    }
    #sidebar-1 {
    	border-right: 1px dotted #82573f;
    }
    #sidebar-2 {
    	border-right: 1px dotted #82573f;
    }
    #sidebar-3 {
    	margin-right: 0px !important;
    }
    ul.commentlist > li.comment > ul.children,
    ol.commentlist > li.comment > ul.children {
    	padding-left: 180px;
    }
    li.pingback p,
    li.trackback p {
    	width: 390px;
    }

    This is great. Is there any way to get it on the left side?

    I was wondering the same thing, but my sidebar option in widgets are 1st, second and 3rd for the bottom not the right sidebar. I have no option for this.

    How do I get this to work?

    Many Thanks

    Andy

    Is it possible to modify the original theme in child themes to achieve a right hand sidebar. This would ensure all future updates in the theme could be used.
