Creating A Gradient Sidebar Border

Hi Flynn, I couldn't find a similar question to this, I apologize if it has been answered already. Basically what I am looking to do is create a gradient on the left border of my left sidebar, and the right border on my right sidebar.

I'm not sure how to accurately explain it, so I will provide an example. If you visit www.thestar.com you will see that the outer parts of the left and right sidebar form a gradual gradient into the outer background.

Any advice on how to achieve this?

Regards,
OZ

This is done with 1 background image on the body

Add

background: url(/path/to/image.gif) repeat-y scroll center top;

to Atahualpa Theme Options -> Body , Text & Links -> Body Style

You'd need to create this image, or take an existing one i.e. from my theme http://wordpress.bytesforall.com/?page_id=34:

http://www.bytesforall.com/wordpress.../images/bg.gif

But that one is only 800px or so wide and has a gray background. You could edit that and make it wider (by cutting it and moving one side farther to the left) or create a new one.
