How do I move a sidebar from right to left? (8 posts)

    I'm using a three column theme with two widget friendly sidebars on the right side. How can I move one of them to the left?

    I find plenty of information on how to customize the sidebar itself but I haven't seen anything on what file to edit and what code to implement in order to arrange the columns.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you have to ask - you don't.
    You find another theme that looks as you want it.

    Thanks, I appreciate the help.

    Actually, I know how to pick themes, and I've even customized the one I'm using a lot. That's why I'd like to learn how to to this one additional thing that I haven't been able to find.

    If you don't want to help, then don't. Let someone tell me where to find the information or how to do it. Otherwise, stop being a jerk and let a person learn.

    You have not provided a link. Hence we can not read either your mark up or your CSS. Nor can we use our tools. We do not know your theme. Nor any hackery you may have inflicted. How can anyone help?

    it's usually just a case of changing a couple lines of css.

    figure out which div contains the sidebar, and which contains the content to the left of it. look both div id's up in the stylesheet and you should see something like "top: Xpx; right: Ypx;". try changing the "right" to "left" and see what happens. if it messes up the other content then take a look at the css for that div and see if you can shift it to the right at all.

    Root- I'm using the Modernpaper theme from performancing. The blog is here. I'd like to move one of those columns to the left side of the post column.

    Ok. Brace yourself. Firing up web dev and using the convenient outline tool. You could usefully add a further container eg #main to include the content and the current lh sidebar.

    Then float #content left & #sidebar (whatever) right.
    Add a clearer div inside #main.

    When it blows up post again.
