Couple of Customisation questions (Rockford) (6 posts)

    I am using the Rockford theme for my blog and I have a few customisation questions (as the creators don't offer support I wanted to ask some experts on this forum if they can help)

    Here is an example of a blog post http://www.thenomadiclondoner.com/2014/03/01/brighton/

    I basically want to move the sidebar to the left of the post (underneath the tags). How do I go about doing this?

    Also I would then want to increase the width for the body of text and header picture. How would I do this?

    Hey mvitti185,

    Generally there will be different page templates for showing sidebar on right and left. If this theme does not provide such template then you can create a child theme and include this css snippet in your style.css

    #container .single .thb-container.bottom .inner-wrapper {
       float: right;
    }

    Hi souravb,

    Thank you for your response.

    Which php. file does the template for sidebars tend to be? I currently am using a child theme. Should I alter the template of the parent theme or will adding the above to the style.css override the parent theme anyway?

    If there is already a template, you will be able to change it from the page editing screen in dashboard. Or if there is no template add the css in your child theme's style.css.

    I havn't use this theme, but these are the possible ways of rearranging the siderbar on the right side.
