  • Anybody?

    I assume you’ve checked this:

    http://themes.wordpress.net/

    Yeah, but the categorizing on it doesn’t work.

    when looking for a theme, i spent hours combing through those available. if you make the proper selections from the left menu in the themeviewer, it will provide you with pages of choices.

    good luck.

    I did that. I categorized for Fluid, 2 Columns, White, Left Sidebar.

    Yet, it still gave me things with millions of colors, right sidebars and fixed width.

    Just to make sure…

    You selected “and” instead of “any” for your search, right? Otherwise, you would have had themes which are fluid OR 2 column OR white OR left sidebar, and that’s a lot of themes.

    I tried it and most of them looked like they fit the criteria. The ones that don’t look right from the screen shots might have options that allow you to set the colors, or the position of the sidebar, or the number of sidebars, etc.

    Anyway, if you don’t find what you want there, I’m not sure what to suggest. That’s the best single place to look.

    Yeah, I got it to work, but none of the themes are suitable.

    I’m trying to make a theme based off sites like Gizmodo.com and such.

    just make it…. not real hard!
    something like this added to your css:

    #leftbar {
    width: 20em;
    height:auto;
    padding:5px;
    margin-right:10px;
    float: left;
    }

    #maincontent {
    width: 70em;
    height:auto;
    padding:5px;
    float:left;
    }

    then add the divisional declarations to your theme in the right place. Open #leftbar right after your container, and close it where you want it to stop. Open your main content at the bottom of the header.php and leave it open. Don’t forget to close the #maincontent (if you use that name) in your footer.php though. tinker with it a bit and you will be good to go.

    Is there a way to make the left bar extend all the way down to were the page ends?

    #leftbar {
    width: 20em;
    height:auto;
    padding:5px;
    margin-right:10px;
    float: left;
    height:auto;
    }

    add height declaration: it should be auto; if you want to have a minimum height do this:

    #leftbar {
    width: 20em;
    height:auto;
    padding:5px;
    margin-right:10px;
    float: left;
    height:auto;
    min-height:100%;}

    -adding minimum height of 100% of viewable screen upon entry of your page that is. you can also use absolute height subbing 1000px or so, but that is a hack of sorts.

    how is your page coming together? got a link?
