    Hi, I use Twenty Ten theme. I would like to know how do I create additional sidebars on each side of the wrapper, I mean outside the wrapper? And, they have to be fixed. Any help is appreciated. Beforehand Thanks!

    My website is: http://buppha.co.uk/

    I have created some css codes for the sidebars to be put outside the container in my twenty ten child theme style.css (see the codes below). But, I don't know how to go from there?

    #outer-sidebar1 {
    	width:160px;
    	margin:0px 0px 60px 0px;
    	float:left;
    	position: fixed;
    }
    #outer-sidebar2 {
    	width:160;
    	margin:0px 0px 60px 0px;
    	float:right;
    	position: fixed;
    }

    Take a look at my site please @mercime. It doesn't look good with the 2 extra sidebars on the left-side - one on top of the head, and one below the footer? I want one on each side along with the container. So, I don't know what I did wrong there?

    @buddies You have to add the styles I posted the pastebin.com per topic in BPorg forums. If you added it, the right sidebar would float right. Also, you might need to increase the width of #xtra-container from 1500px to something like 1700px, then decrease it until there's a snug fit.

    Unfortunately, I can't get it to work. So, I have deleted the codes from my site since it doesn't look good with the sidebars on top of the header and below footer on one side. Anyway, thank you very much for your help & time. I will still keep trying, until I find the right solution.

    Happy New Year!
