Support » Fixing WordPress » Side Bar Split

  • Hi

    I want my sidebar to be split about half way down the page so i can have more than one block on the side.

    Example

    |_______|
    |_______|
    |___|___|
    |___|___|
    |___|___|

    That just being the side bar.

    I have seen a video of youtube but cannot find it now.
    Thanks for the help

  • I think this is related with theme your using. I mean, if your theme does not provide it out of the box, then you have to edit the sidebar.php of your theme, so it can be devided one column at the top and two column at bottom. Not only that, you have to register additional widget areas for new added blocks. This requires a little bit of PHP programming and WordPress theme structure.

    I can’t deep into details, but roughly the layout should be like the following HTML code:

    <div id="outer">
       <div id="top">
          <!-- content for top block goes here -->
       </div>
       <div id="bottom">
          <div style="float:left;width:50%">
             <!-- content for bottom left block goes here -->
          </div>
          <div style="float:right;width:50%">
             <!-- content for bottom right block goes here -->
          </div>
       </div>
    </div>
    

    If it helps i can recreate a theme that has 2 sidebars down the one side and then i would just have to do the opposite and close the top section up after

    bump.
