Support » Theme: Decode » sidebar and conent side by side scrolling

  • Resolved y2k


    I love the theme, its exactly what i want except the sidebar issue that its separated from the content. I’ve been trying now all possible ways to achieve following but haven’t been successful:

    I want the the sidebar to behave like the content and not that it scrolls with the content. It should just start where the content does and be infinite. To reach widgets which are not visible u can scroll down and the content scrolls the same. It would be very helpful if someone could share any information with me, if this is even possible or how to proceed to reach my goal.

    Again, wonderful theme. Thank you very much for sharing.

  • I have a similar question. I’m not sure if this is exactly the same as issue as described above, but: When using the always-visible sidebar, is there a way to make the sidebar not stationary? i.e. to remove the scroll bar between the main column and the sidebar?

    y2k, have you tried the Always visible option for the sidebar? This may alleviate this issue you are having?

    fritzwk, not right now. I have two options and both are complex to implement together, adding a third would really increase complexity, but this may be added in the future.

    Scott Smith, yes i have. thats how i discovered it that the left side bar is static from its size. on the blog i am trying to use your template on, there are couple of widgets on the left side. This means that scrolling is a necessity but instead it just cuts the content and you cant scroll anymore. To achieve that i checked in the options that the side bar is always visible and to get rid of the bothering scroll bar and border i used following code
    under additional styles:

    .sidebar.constant.left {
    border-right: none;
    margin: 0;

    That is close, but maybe you want to try overflow: scroll; instead? That should allow the content to scroll on the x-axis as well as the y-axis. Also, maybe try making the widgets fix within the sidebar?

    I’ve tried this already. Scrolling is possible then but they are still seperated if i remember right? i want both areas (sidebar, content) to scroll at the same time. The sidebar should react as it is a part of the content and not that it is separate.

    Yes, I thought you said that you wanted “the sidebar to behave like the content and not that it scrolls with the content” but you do want the sidebar to scroll with the content then?

    is it possible to do it with the right side?

    There is an option in Sidebar Options to show the sidebar on the right.
