I'm gutted this does not work right. I've been using WP for a few months now. Coming from a full html wysiwyg editor ( dreamweaver and express web ) I have found 1 part of WP by far the most annoying.
I've no issue with the idea of child theme's , plugins , tinkering with the CSS php code etc by the way. And there are lots of great functionality.... BUT !!!
actually finding out the name of the object you want to change is AAARRGGGHHH. Let alone finding where it resides. ( please don't anyone respond with "just pull up the source code in the browser" ) there is so many calls from 1 piece of code to another to another that rarely works.
i understand why its coded like this. but i think the usual answer of "go to line 2323 and cut/paste then try and find this line which will either be hear or hear or hear, but only if its a full moon etc, is getting a little old. I'm using wp as a tool. the end product is the site. If i wanted to spend hours in the code to do simple things i'd probably be a developer. ( as nodoubt the people who will slate this post will be )
I'm running twenty twelve ( child ) and have a a single sidebar. All i wanted to do was to reduce the width of the sidebar and increase the size of the main content div. 2 min job in anything other than WP.
spent a good couple of hours reading different posts all with totally different solutions ( non worked ) tinker with the #primary and #secondary entries ( counld't even find the entries ) and lots more besides.
So u could imagine when i came across this plugin how happy i was. arrowed down to the content div and simply changed the width. Same for sidebar and then repositioned with a drag. God, we were back in the modern world :)
Only to find the menu on the app wasn't working. all the options grey out upon selection of an existing theme except the create new, but that hangs if u try and use it.
So for the benefit of the developer ..... Great job and please just finish off. you would make a mint.
My thoughts are although most never dare say anything negative about WP, 99% of users would happily pay for this. ( lets face it, this basic functionality should be bundled with the base WP package never mind a plugin ).
