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

make sidebar width liquid

I need to make the sidebar width liquid so that it gets narrower as the browser gets narrow but the Style & Configure Sidebars only accepts px. How can I get it to show sidebar width as a % of page width?

I can just not use sidebars and make the sidebar as part of the page and divide it with CSS but then I would need to edit every sidebar separately if I need to edit. I would like to add a widget on the posts but use a sidebar that has responsive width or add a widget into the page.

Is there any way to do this or will I need to edit every post when I need to edit the sidebar?

After posting the above post I found a plugin that will generate a shortcode for a widget that will allow a widget to be put into a page or post using the shortcode. It is called Widget Shortcode

You could do this by adding some CSS to ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts option
if you wanted to set the right sidebar fluid use
HTML Code:
.colthree {width: nn%;}
where nn is the number you want. The columns use the classes
colone (left sidebar)
colone-inner (left-inner sidebar)
coltwo (center area)
colthree-inner (right-inner sidebar)
colthree (right sidebar)

If you do this, use percentages on all and make sure they add up to 100%
