Support » Theme: Colinear » Child theme for Colinear – sidebars not working

    I’m trying to creata a child theme for Colinear, because I would like to me some minor changes to the layout.

    The child theme works partly: everything else seems to be fine, but I cannot use two sidebars. If I select two sidebars on the left I can only see one Right sidebar when adding the Widgets.

    What could be wrong?
    I have been following these instructions: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    I added functions.php to my child theme to load the parent-theme’s style.css file. Should I include more functions to the functions.php?

  • Hello,

    Delete your actual child theme.
    Install the Child Theme Wizard plugin and create a new child theme.
    Now you can customize as you wish πŸ™‚

    Thanks for advice.

    I tried this, but there is still the same problem: only one right sidebar is available under widgets when I choose layout with 2 sidebars on right.

    It seems that the problem only occured in the preview mode. When I saved the child theme to my site, everything works fine. So, this problem is solved.

    Glad to here it πŸ™‚

    Hi there. πŸ™‚

    I’m glad to hear that your child theme’s working correctly!

    The right sidebar on Colinear does drop down below its main content on devices that have smaller widths e.g. tablets, mobile phones, etc. If you were previewing your site via Appearance > Customize, then the main content width would have been smaller in the preview and the sidebar would have dropped down. This isn’t an issue when viewing your site on a full width desktop device.

    Let me know if that helps to clear up what was happening or if you have further questions.
