    Hi there,

    I love the Pinboard theme! It is one of the best out there... But there is a problem that I would love to have some help with. I want to have a sidebar on the left, the content in the middle and a sidebar to the right. Two sidebars! Today it is only possible to have the sidebar on left side or the right side.
    Will it come in the next update or can I put it in, the css editor or is there a plugin that can fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have a child theme set up?

    Where can I see that?

    I have a CSS Stylesheet Editor.
    And below it says:
    /*
    Welcome to Custom CSS!

    CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a kind of code that tells the browser how
    to render a web page. You may delete these comments and get started with
    your customizations.

    By default, your stylesheet will be loaded after the theme stylesheets,
    which means that your rules can take precedence and override the theme CSS
    rules. Just write here what you want to change, you don't need to copy all
    your theme's stylesheet content.

    You'd know if you have a child theme - you have to make one -

    You can't do this in CSS - and it's fairly involved so you'll have to get into some coding. If that's not for you, you may want to look for a theme that has this option already.

    Can't I upload it in my Custom CSS?

    No, you can't make this change using CSS.

    Ok!

    I found a child theme creator plug-in.
    That is called: Orbisius Child Theme Creator 1.0.3

    Yep, that should work, but creating the sidebars is not simple - see:
