I am new here and new to the parent/child theme (and code stuff!), but I am getting around so far!
First I would like to say thank you: thematic is wonderful and very much "to the point" (simple and nice).
I do not have a child installed (so far).
What I am trying to do:
I like the sidebar, but because I have many sites, that are all linked somehow, I would like to make a semi-static sidebar. I will only use 1 widget per site (unique, at the top/primary) but the rest of the sidebar will be static (same for all pages/sites) - Or to have a complete static sidebar (i can always "hardcode" the unique widget for each site)
I also like that the first widget in thematic (in the primary widget part) is enclosed in a square, and would like that for each static sidebar section.
As I said, I am getting around of codes and stuff. I took a quick look in the forums and under the sidebar.php but there are too many lines of code for me to mess with!
Any idea/help is very much appreciated.
