[resolved] How do I modify the default theme to get 3 columns? (7 posts)

    I did a search but found nothing, so it's off to the forums for help!

    I like the default theme very much! Only problem is - I want to make it into 3 columns, and I want to put in Adsense boxes into the right-hand column.

    I am a COMPLETE know-nothing when it comes to CSS or RSS or things of these sort (I used to do some html but only *some*). If someone can write out the code and tell me where to insert it, I would be most grateful.

    Here's something for starters:

    Found that thread asking the same question.

    If you don't know how to do CSS, you're better off finding a pre-made 3 column layout in the Theme Viewer. I believe there are a couple there that look like the theme you want to use.

    Thank you! :-)
    It is, though it's not my own theme. I used the Bricks 1.0 theme in the WRC Theme Viewer and basically flipped it around, then got rid of the bricks image on the blue column and moved that column up so that both columns were basically level with each other. I took out the calendar, redid the header and some other small details, and I think that's it.

    I would put my version up for download, but a couple of the changes I've made aren't "proper" for doing so. I've got some things manually coded into the sidebar and so on that are specific to my site.

    When I learn more about coding, then maybe I'll fix it and offer it up for download. For now I can just recommend using the Bricks Theme and modifying it to your liking, if you know how. You can email me through the contact page on my site if you need help. :-)
