[Theme: Scrappy] Adding a 3rd column

  • Dany

    @extremecouponbeliever

    Hi
    I love love love the Scrappy theme by Caroline Moore. Could anyone advise me on how to:
    1. Add a 3rd column on the left of this theme?
    2. Once added, how can I adjust the size of the columns so the middle column wouldn’t be so scrunched?

    Thank you in advance for all your help. I’m a ditz when it comes to all the codes:|

    Hi there!

    This is possible, but it’s a bit advanced if you’re not comfortable with code. I can give you a general idea:

    * Create a child theme, so your changes will be preserved across future theme updates
    * Create a new sidebar file in your child theme (ie. sidebar-mysidebar.php) by copying sidebar.php from Scrappy and changing the filename.
    * If you intend to include widgets in your sidebar, you’ll want to add a functions.php file to your child theme and register your sidebar like so:

    function my_new_sidebar() {
    register_sidebar ('mysidebar');
    }
    add_action('widgets_init','my_new_sidebar');

    * Copy any of Scrappy’s display files (index.php, single.php, page.php, etc.) into the child theme and include the sidebar file just before the content div with get_sidebar('mysidebar');
    * Adjust the child theme’s style.css accordingly so there’s enough room for all three columns–this will require changing the width property of the .wrapper div, and adding styling for your sidebar.

    So yes, possible but not what I’d call easy. 🙂 I hope this helps point you in the right direction.
