    Hi, i love P2 theme and i want to use it for my new website. but i want to add a 2. sidebar to the left. i have tried many times but i can’t do that. left sidebar appears, position is true but i have problem with the sleeve main and main area. maybe i only need to change the CSS file but i don’t know which codes. Can somebody please help me how to do it correctly? Thank you…

  • Sounds like a CSS problem. Post the URL to the site please.

    Hi, thank you for your reply, actually i’m testing that on a test url and i’ve made all css changes back to defaults, that’s so annoying i can’t find the right way. creating and placing left sidebar is ok but the main and sleeve main looks bad. i can give you my css file details.
    style css is here
    rtl stylesheet is here
    i’ve added this code to functions.php :

    if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') )
    register_sidebars(2);

    and i’ve created a php file named sidebar2.php
    i use this code to include 2. sidebar (in header.php) :
    include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebar2.php');
    creating, displaying and positioning 2. sidebar with no error.
    but when i do all that the main and sleeve main parts look bad.I’m waiting for some help, thank you again.

    Find all instances of sidebar in your stylesheet and duplicate them renaming sidebar to sidebar2 – shortcut!

    If you knew much of coding css you could redefine the entries to support both sidebars.

    “Find all instances of sidebar in your stylesheet and duplicate them renaming sidebar to sidebar2” i did it, 2. sidebar appears and i made float: left; and it’s on the left side but the problem is with the main content. i don’t know much about CSS styling that’s the problem. i need some CSS help. Thank you…

    Its very hard to understand the problem when I can’t see the problem, but I did take a look at the P2 theme and I think maybe you need to edit the #main part of your stylesheet, adding a width attribute to make room for the new sidebar. But, really, there is probably a hundred ways to do this and I don’t know what look you trying to achieve. Maybe a screenshot of the problem?

    ok, here is how it looks : site

    Here is Style CSS :

    Here is Rtl Stylesheet :

    2. sidebar is registered, and placed but #main and sleeve main parts look bad.

    sorry about the css links, they’re here :

    RTL STYLESHEET

    CSS STYLESHEET

    I don’t know much about CSS styling so it’s better when somebody write the codes that i need as a reply (uploading whole CSS will be much more better)

    Finally, i made it on my own, thanks to the people who tried to help me…
    🙂
