    I have just installed the Eleven40 theme and have some issues…

    1. I have the theme set as Content – SideBar -SideBar.  If I display the calendar in the second sidebar the right side of the calendar gets truncated.  Is there a way to set with widths of the sidebars?

    2. The menu is getting displayed beneath the header.  Is there a way of getting the menu to display to the right of the header like in the sample?

    1. Yes, you can adjust the width of your sidebar, but you would need to adjust other parts of your stylesheet as well. Here is a link showing the mark-up of the various components, which will help you determine what to look for, and what to change:

    2. In the demo, the menu is added by dragging the custom menu widget to the Header Right. (Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets)

    I have found the code in the css file that controls the positions of the 2 side bars.  It is as follows:


    .sidebar {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    font-size: 14px;
    padding: 25px 0 0;
    width: 250px;
    }

    #sidebar-alt {
    float: left;
    padding: 25px 0 0;
    width: 150px;
    }

    I wish to make the left side bar with a width of 180 and the right sidebar with a width of 220.

    I have tried editing the widths but that did not work.  The second sidebar was placed beneath the first sidebar.  Does anyone know what changes that I need to make to this css file?

    The css is back to the original.

    In order to make what you want work – you need to switch the sidebars around. Currently the middle sidebar is Primary and the last one is Secondary. To make the sizes the way you want – you need to flip flop the columns. You can follow these instructions to do that and then change the CSS the way you want – http://www.billerickson.net/switch-genesis-sidebars/.

    You should be able do the widths on the sidebars the way you indicated above that you want:

    #sidebar-alt {
    padding: 25px 0 0;
    width: 180px;
    }

    .sidebar {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    font-size: 14px;
    padding: 25px 0 0;
    width: 220px;
    }

    But once the width of the browser window/viewing area is reduced, it will push one sidebar beneath the other because this theme is designed to be responsive.

    I’ve got a lot of experience customizing the Eleven40 theme, for several different client sites as well as my own website. I have a standard process for converting the content area and sidebar widths to percentages with max- and min-width settings in pixels just to ensure it renders well at almost every browser width/screen resolution combination.

    Let me know if I can help you, as this is “my” theme! :)

    I wrote some instruction before you posted yours and it’s not here. I then submitted 4 more times – different text entirely and they do not show up in here.

    I just posted again below this one and it will not save!!! Try this to flip flop the columns and then change the widths – http://www.billerickson.net/switch-genesis-sidebars/.

    I posted a message before Riavon posted their message. If you want the columns flip flopped so they will work correctly you can use this – http://www.billerickson.net/switch-genesis-sidebars/.
