    Would anyone be willing to explain how to move the sidebar that is in the footer to the right hand side? Or better even insert a new sidebar on the RHS?

    Thanks!

    Have you a Child Theme?
    Can you post a relevant link to your website, or Pastebin.com your HTML and CSS code for one relevant page?

    A Child Theme is a folder within your theme that inherits functionality of its parent theme.

    Modifications to themes will erase upon theme update, unless Child Themes are used.

    any help on how to install one? sorry but i'm really dumb at these things!

    You may have an easier time just selecting another theme. Sixhours theme's are awesome (yep, I'm a fan ;) ) but what you are asking for would alter the whole flow and layout.

    Oh, and did I mention I'm a fan...? :P

    Edit: Nuts, that's a custom theme and I can't find the download link. Sorry, it looks like it's not available.

    Well a search may still help you in the theme repo.

    Thanks Jan! :)

    @loveateverybite - this is possible but requires some pretty significant adjustments. You definitely need to use a child theme if you attempt it. You can find some tips on creating a new sidebar here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/theme-buttercream-anyone-care-to-share-how-to-create-a-sidebar?replies=7

    If that's not up your alley, another of my themes, Pachyderm, has a similar look and feel, and also includes an optional right-hand sidebar:

    Or you can always search the directory--there's a tag search for right-sidebar:

    Good luck!

    Sorry, that version of the theme was created specifically for my client so it belongs to her. I can't share it.
