    Hi, can any one tell me how I can get a left hand side bar list of items.
    Then when clicking a heading within that list it opens another list of items with images and descriptions once clicking the image, it links to a website, without the side bar disappearing.

    Sorry if I didn't explain myself too well I am very new to this and have the basics, but seriously want more.

    Any help would be wonderful!
    Thanks

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    Are you using a child theme or a custom CSS plugin?

    I don't think I am using either. I have a couple of plugins contact 7 form and custom side bars. but the custom side bars do not appear on the left hand side of my page.

    There isn't a left-hand sidebar in the 2012 theme.

    Ah! Can you please tell me what the best theme would be to choose for a left hand side bar. Once clicking on the subject it opens a few products with pictures and description then I can link the more info.

    Try looking for a 2-columns, left-sidebar, theme via http://wordpress.org/themes/tag-filter/

    Yes. How proficient are you with CSS, HTML and/or PHP?

    I'm not, I'm a newbie I use the HTML in Word Press but do not know what CSS or PHP
    Sorry to be a pain!
    I have changed my theme now. But I am now having problems with the drop down menu in Rainbow. It was working, but it isn't now. Not too sure if it is iPage where i host or something I have done.
    Do you know if you can change a theme to responsive? Or do you need to choose a responsive theme.
