SOLVED: sidebar placement

  • Jan. 25th, 2008 at 11:24 PM
Hi!

I'm currently using Electioneering by thefulcrum with the sidebar being placed at the bottom. Now I'm trying to find a way to move it to the top instead. Can anyone help with that? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

Did you ask grrliz? She's the one who made the layout and would know it better than I.

Someone actually asked the exact same question before me and, according to grrilz, it should theoretically be possible if you knew css. She isn't able to help everyone individually, though, not having enough time at hand and all - which I totally understand and respect. Not wanting to bother her I thought I'd try my luck here ^^;

I see. She also just refers people back to her FAQ saying that she offers the templates "as-is" and can't really help with complicated changes. Even though she said to leave the CSS alone, I think you'd have to create a theme layer to switch the order. #beta is always printed after #alpha in the HTML, and all the CSS changes I made just overlaid the bottom bar on top of the entries, not displaced them.

Never mind, I figured it out, although it'll only work for you because you're hiding the #header section. Find this section of the stylesheet:
#alpha {width: 100%}
#alpha-inner {}

#beta {width: 100%;}
#beta-inner {position: relative; }


Change the first line to this:
#alpha {width: 100%; top: 235px;}

Change the third line to this:
#beta {width: 100%; position: absolute; top: 0;}

It worked. Thank you so much ^^
