    Hi all.

    I’m interested in adding a left sidebar to the Minimum theme, i.e. so I can have a sidebar-content-sidebar setup. I’m sorta familiar with this type of operation, but wanted to see if anyone had done it already and had any tips/ideas or knew of any links/tutorials that discussed this.

    Is there any way to ‘pull’ code from another theme that features 2 sidebars and just modify it or am I better off starting from scratch?

    There’s no site for this yet – it’s still in the dev stages (in my head) :)

    Thanks,
    -Kent

    Look in your functions.php file first – you should see where sidebar-content-sidebar has been “removed”. If you see it – remove that line and it should restore that functionality. Then look in your Style.css for Sidebar-Alt. If you don’t have that – you can take that from another theme to bring in some styling.

    Thanks for that, Anita. I ‘un-removed’ the other sidebar option, but there’s no sidebar alt in the CSS. I’ll dig around and see if I can scavenge some code from another theme.

    Would copying all the existing sidebar CSS and renaming it ‘sidebar-alt’ work? Maybe I’ll try that.
