    There’s a few problems and 2 solutions to that.
    The 2 solutions are to either:

    • float: left; the sidebar & float: right: the content column. I don’t remember if this presents any issues
    • What is referred to as the “perfect layout” (google: “holy grail layout css”) to see how to do that

    As you have probably figured out this is difficult to do. If you put the sidebar 1st in order of the HTML… the search engines scroll through that before they get to your actual content which isn’t ideal.
    The solution is the “perfect layout” solved by using flexbox css.

    The new version (working on it) will solve this issue where you can just choose which side you want the sidebar in the theme customizer.

    Thanks for this information.

    When should we expect the new version? please.

    I appreciate you guys like the current theme so much, so I’d like to give you guys something even cooler. I’m making sure its done right.

    Since there’s an interest from a few people (and I’m really liking the new version)… I will do my best to have it completed in the next 30 days, so April 22nd.
    Ideally it would be launched by then too.

    Thanks @mahwash

    Thanks for that, you’re doing a great job.

    The only issue im having at the moment is to be able to add both left and right sidebar to the theme, because at at moment there is need for me to display some items on both sidebars.

    I hope the new version will come with that functionality. Looking forward for the release. Cheers.

    I like the “Load More” feature you used. Looks good.

    Just remember, its important that all customizations made to any WordPress theme are made through a ‘child theme’. So in this case a child theme made for Social Magazine. Personally, I back up all child themes and regular themes in multiple places.
    If you were to update the version and those customizations weren’t in a child theme, all that work would be lost.

    Though I would put that out there just as a reminder for everyone.

    I back up my customizations and make copies.

    If you were to update the version with customization made directly to the theme… all of that work would be lost.

    Thought I would put that out there as a reminder to everyone to use child themes for customizations.
