    Hi, Our site was built with a single column, full width format.

    I want to add a right side bar or even just a second column. My technical skills are limited, but I have spent a lot of time trying to sort this out. I need help or guidance, Please.

    Which theme are you using? From the CSS alone it looks like there's a fullwidth template. I gather there might also be a template with a sidebar. Try by going to the admin panel in the pages section, select the page you want the sidebar in, and see if in the drop-down list with the available templates for the page you can find one that might include a sidebar.

    Sorry, I'm using twenty twelve.
    The template is front page template and it is a fullwidth template. I tried the home page template and that left me with a header and no content. No side bar template available.

    I've opened 2012 and I find 2 templates. front-page.php has a sidebar. There's also a fullwidth template, but it's just an additional layout. You have the choice to apply the template you prefer.

    This tutorial in the codex could help if you don't know how to apply a page template:
