[resolved] Sidebar Widgets in Twenty Ten Theme (5 posts)

    I am building a child theme of twenty ten. I wanted to use a slider at the top of my home page (which I kept as my latest post page) that stretched all the way across the page. It covered my sidebar, so I pushed my sidebar down with padding in my style.css file, but now the sidebars are pushed down on every page. Is there a way to get the sidebars down on the home page and leave them at the default position for all other pages?.

  2. pushed my sidebar down with padding in my style.css file

    each page in a site using the theme Twenty Ten has a unique css clas thanks to body_class(); http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/body_class

    make that style selective for the home page;

    example:

    .home .whatever-you-have used { ... }

    Thanks for your quick response, but I am fairly new to this... Here is what I copied into and changed in my new style.css to push the sidebars down:

    /* Main sidebars */
    #main .widget-area ul {
    margin-left: 0;
    padding: 490px 20px 0 0;

    How should it read?

  4. this should be the section
    - first the original style, then the one for the home page, pushing the sidebar down:

    /* Main sidebars */
    #main .widget-area ul {
    	margin-left: 0;
    	padding: 0 20px 0 0;
    }
    
    * Main sidebar on home page */
    .home #main .widget-area ul {
    margin-left: 0;
    padding: 490px 20px 0 0;
    }
