There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] New Widget Area Above Side Bar + Spaces In Side Bar

Hello! I just changed my center area from two side bars (on either side) to one on the right.(with posts on left side) I'm wondering if it's possible to add a new widget area above my right side bar...I'm trying to get a search box at the top of the right bar and have the cats and recent posts side by side underneath the search bar.

Also how do I make spaces underneath widget areas - say if I want to place another widget underneath cats but don't want it to be butt up against it?

here's my site for ref.

Thanks,
Chris

You are actually using the right and right-inner sidebar areas. So what you want is a widget area that spans the top of the two sidebar areas.

this is not avaliable in an option or by using the new widget areas, but you can edit the code and create your own. You would need to work in bfa_footer.php and you should an area where it lays out the two sidebars. You'll probably have to add a <TD colspan=2> .....</td> to get it to work.

to get a space between widgets gpo to ATO->Automatically close comments on articles older than days->Widget Container and play with the third number in the 'margin: 0 0 15px 0;' rule, (the numbers are top, right, bottom, left) - if you change a number from 0, you need teh PX after it.

Hey Juggledad, that affected all the widgets - as you know. How can I just affect the one widget in the right side bar - (to create a space above it)?

Thanks,
Chris

Take a look at the source of the page, find the widget you want, look at the class and/or the ID for a unique name and use that in the CSS selector

Apologies, I don't really understand what your saying here. Where do I look at the source of the page. Is this in the ATO's? Do I have to go into edit themes?
