    open the style.css file and go to 44 line (approximately). You ll find the following lines,
    #sidebar-primary {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 0 60px;
    position: fixed;
    width: 240px;
    }

    Here change position: absolute;

    If you change it to Absolute, you will have the left sidebar OVER the two other ones (central content + right sidebar). That's ugly.

    I've tried it. Anyone to give the solution to this ?

    You should have mentioned that it cost money to be able to do this... Why would anyone want the bar to be static without option?

    @filthyseagal sorry i don't understand what you said.

    @dark Roast, are you sure if this line is commented that the bar won't be over the two others remaining and that three of them will scroll at the same level? Just to be sure before changing it in my server side.
    Thanks

    Hey Selmab, the bar will just scroll with the other two.

    @Dark Roast NO, it scroll but with a fix advance relative to the central and the other sidebar and that's ugly!! hopefully, i tested in the localhost.

    Hi Drk Roast, Could you paste here the URL of your website using this theme with the fix you did?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I'm working on a site which is only running at my localhost on the moment.
    Bur don't you want something like this: http://www.payitforwardfriends.com/ (found this URL in an other threat)

    Or do you mean with "with a fix advance relative to the central and the other sidebar" the margin's between the columns? And can't you just adjust that with the CSS?

    in this example, it's Ok. But when i comment this line, i get the 3 columns scrolling but 1 is shifted by a given distance relative to the two others. I mean, when scrolling, the (previous) fixed bar stay back by some pixels.

    Maybe because i've chosen not to have a title/description for my website like the example you gave, and the height of the title/description emplacement is equal to the number of pixels that keep the (previous) fixed bar back.

    As above, it was recommended...

    open the style.css file and go to 44 line (approximately). You ll find the following lines,
    #sidebar-primary {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 0 60px;
    position: fixed;
    width: 240px;
    }

    Here change position: absolute;

    This works, but if you've scaled the side-bar too wide then it pushes the content in the main column down.
