  1. How is this done? I can't see any clear spot where this width is marked in the stylesheet. Is it necessary to add this line? any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks!

  2. The sidebar width—and the whole structure of the theme—is specified in library/layouts/2c-r-fixed.css. It's imported into style.css on line 24.

    You should adjust the sidebar width in a child theme …

  3. I found that simply copying the contents of 2c-r-fixed.css into the child theme's stylesheet and modifying from there was much easier (if somewhat less elegant) than importing it in one line.

  4. True.

    And if anyone comes up with some nice basic structures based on the included Grid, send them along to me. If I like them, I'll include them in the theme release with credit.

  5. I adjusted 3c-r-fixed.css (and widgets.php and style.css and sidebar.php) so there is now a new widgetized column that sits on top of of the two left hand columns. Let me know if you'd like a peak.

    I'm still a little new to child themes. Is there a way to do this with child themes?

  6. With Thematic, not yet. And yes, I would like a peek. :)

  7. Wait, technically yes. I think. But you would have to use absolute positioning and javascript. Hinging, of course, on the ability for child themes to add new widget areas. I haven't tried that yet.
