    Hi! Was just wondering if anyone knows how I go about switching the sidebar (i.e all the widgets) from the right to the the left side. I am using the default (Kubrick) theme.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just move the following code in your theme files:
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    You'll have to adjust CSS too.

    You can also do it just with CSS positioning... a little bit of advanced CSS knowledge here.

    So I moved the <?php get_sidebar(); ?> to before the <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn"> command under the PAGE TEMPLATE PHP.

    Was that correct?

    Nothing changed yet.

    That's probably because I havent changed anything in the CSS. Can you describe what I have to do there?

    I will be indebted to you forever. lol

    Yup the first par was correct. Now you have to play with CSS to get things right.

    Look for:

    /* Begin Sidebar */
    	padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    	margin-left: 545px;
    	width: 190px;

    Note that you'll probably have to play with some other IDs or classes to not break the layout.
