Hi everyone! I just recently installed this theme and I'm really liking it! One thing I'd really like to do, if possible, would be to have both sidebars on one side. I was able to do this with my previous theme (K2), and I was wondering if was possible with this theme.

Thanks for your help!

The theme is prepared to do that even though it is not implemented as an automated feature. I might be missing something but this should work:

Cut the following from header.php:

PHP Code:
<?php if ( $left_col == "on" ) { ?>
<!-- Left Sidebar -->
<td id="left">

<?php // Widgetize the Left Sidebar
if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) :
endif; 
?>

</td>
<!-- / Left Sidebar -->
<?php ?>
and paste into footer.php, right before this:

PHP Code:
<?php if ( $right_col == "on" ) { ?>
<!-- Right Sidebar -->
<td id="right">

<?php // Widgetize the Right Sidebar
if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(2) ) :
endif; 
?>

</td>
<!-- / Right Sidebar -->
<?php ?>
Go back to header.php and change this:

PHP Code:
<colgroup>
<?php if ( $left_col == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colone" />
<?php ?>
<col class="coltwo" />
<?php if ( $right_col == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colthree" />
<?php ?>
</colgroup>
to this:

PHP Code:
<colgroup>
<col class="coltwo" />
<?php if ( $left_col == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colone" />
<?php ?>
<?php 
if ( $right_col == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colthree" />
<?php ?>
</colgroup>

Great, you were the first to test this as far as I know...

If you want to move the right border of the left sidebar to its left side, change Atahualpa Theme Options -> Sidebars -> LEFT sidebar style

HTML Code:
border-right: dashed 1px #CCCCCC;
to

HTML Code:
border-left: dashed 1px #CCCCCC;

This should be around line 872-880 in /wp-content/themes/atahualpa/header.php

Hi,
found the lines and made the changes as instructed but, my left sidebar is now acting as the contentcolumn with lots of space and my contentcolumn is transformed to a sidebar at the right, what more should I change in the code to have right columns as sidebar?

That's a fairly uncritical change, it should work. Try again. Or, let me see the error in action. Seems you've changed it back. I'll be around the next few hours

It worked for me also and I am nearly codephobic ;-) I show the blog of when I am finished customizing the heck out of it. Your theme is the best thing invented for wordpress since sliced bread (excuse the dodgy metaphore, you know what I mean!) SY

Zu frueh gefreut ;-( I was singing Alleluia a bit too early, now the widget spacing of the left side bar is uneven. Can somebody please have a look at http://hospitalera.com/ and tell me how I managed to mess it up? Thanks a lot! SY
PS I left it in the default setting for the widget spacing, so it must be something what I did wrong whilst switching the site bars ;-(

You've put various seemingly unnecessary DIV's inside the text widgets, and one of those DIV's is probably not closed, leading to text widgets being inside each other. If you clean up the content of the text widgets the margins between widgets should come back.

Greetings

I'm using this great theme and i 've made this hack for the sidebars.
Unfortunately, i have a small situation.

After the hack, my site (www.macedonas.gr) have an horizontal scroll bar and i can't figure it out why. I've shanged the size of my banner, but nothing changed.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks a lot in advanced

PS. Also i've noticed that there is one more option at the widgets sidebars menu. "Invisible Widget Area"
What is that ?

Your site didn't load for me, I waited a minute. Feel free to post again when it loads

The invisible widget area is probably from your former theme, go back to that theme, remove any widgets that may still be in there, then switch to Atahualpa again.

Or it might be from the plugin "Tabbed Widgets"

The invisible widget area you were right was from the Tabbed Widget (please any update about that ?)

I've cleared old unwanted widgets-extensions. Also i don't have any other themes installed, but the blank space still exists.
I though maybe something went wrong at cut-copy-paste inside the code, but i doubled check it and i can't find anything (as far as i can see).

Any ideas ?

First of all: Thanks for a great theme!

I have both sidebars on the right side and now I would like to get the "Featured content" above both these sidebars on the right side (http://www.personkryss.se). I am really frustrated because I can't seem to get it to work.

Does anyone have a tip?

thanks!

Ok i found the solution. The code has changed, so Flynn i'm rewriting here the update of the code-trick above. i hope that will help others too


Cut the following from header.php:

PHP Code:
<?php if ( $bfa_ata['left_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
        <!-- Left Sidebar -->
        <td id="left">

            <?php // Widgetize the Left Sidebar 
            
if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) : ?>
        
                    <div class="widget widget_categories"><div class="widget-title">
                    <h3><?php _e('Categories','atahualpa'); ?></h3>
                    </div><div class="widget-content">
                    <ul>
                        <?php wp_list_categories('show_count=1&title_li='); ?>
                    </ul>
                    </div></div>
                    
                    <div class="widget widget_archive"><div class="widget-title">
                    <h3><?php _e('Archives','atahualpa'); ?></h3>
                    </div><div class="widget-content">
                    <ul>
                        <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>
                    </ul>
                    </div></div>
                                    
            <?php endif; ?>

        </td>
        <!-- / Left Sidebar -->
        <?php ?>
and paste into footer.php, right before this:

PHP Code:
<?php if ( $bfa_ata['right_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
<!-- Right Sidebar -->
<td id="right">

    <?php // Widgetize the Right Sidebar
    
if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(2) ) : ?>

        <div class="widget"><div class="widget-title">
        <h3>Recent Posts</h3></div><div class="widget-content">
        <?php $r = new WP_Query(array(
            
'showposts' => 20,
        
//    'cat__in'=>array(14),
            
'cat__not_in'=>array(15,80),
            
'what_to_show' => 'posts',
            
'nopaging' => 0,
            
'post_status' => 'publish',
            
'caller_get_posts' => 1));
        if (
$r->have_posts()) : ?>
        <ul>
        <?php  while ($r->have_posts()) : $r->the_post(); ?>
        <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php if ( get_the_title() ) the_title(); else the_ID(); ?> </a></li>
        <?php endwhile; ?>
        </ul>
        <?php wp_reset_query();  // Restore global post data stomped by the_post().
        
endif; ?>
        </div></div>

        <div class="widget"><div class="widget-title">
        <?php wp_list_bookmarks('category_before=&category_after=&title_before=<h3>&title_after=</h3></div><div class="widget-content">'); ?>
        </div></div>

        <div class="widget"><div class="widget-title">
        <h3><?php _e('Meta','atahualpa'); ?></h3>
        </div><div class="widget-content">
        <ul>
            <?php wp_register(); ?>
            <li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
            <li><a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="
            <?php _e('Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.','atahualpa'); ?>">
            <?php _e('WordPress','atahualpa'); ?></a></li>
            <?php wp_meta(); ?>
        </ul>
        </div></div>

    <?php endif; ?>

</td>
<!-- / Right Sidebar -->
<?php ?>
Go back to header.php and change this:

PHP Code:
<colgroup>
<?php if ( $bfa_ata['left_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colone" />
<?php ?>
<col class="coltwo" />
<?php if ( $bfa_ata['right_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colthree" />
<?php ?>
</colgroup>
to this:

PHP Code:
<colgroup>
<col class="coltwo" />
<?php if ( $bfa_ata['left_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colone" />
<?php ?>
<?php 
if ( $bfa_ata['right_col'] == "on" ) { ?>
<col class="colthree" />
<?php ?>
</colgroup>
I don't know if i'm perfectly right (Flynn ?) cause there is the new widget code inside, but as i can see, it works now for me.
