    Hi,

    I'm wondering if I can build a 3-column site with a liquid layout using Thematic. Specifically, I need two fixed-width sidebars in both sides and one fluid-width content area in the middle.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards

  2. the answer is probably yes. i think you can do pretty much anything... eventually. how much time are you willing to put into it?

    i don't know of one that exists already for you to use, but creating a 3 column liquid layout for thematic isn't any different than for any other html, except thematic will have a few different CSS ID selectors. i know there are plenty of tutorials on this out there.

    Hi again,

    I'm using the 3c-fixed.css stylesheet to create a 3-column liquid layout, but I don't know how to place the #primary sidebar on the left without using the margin trick:

    #primary {
        width:220px;
        float:left;
        margin:0 0 0 -940px;
    }

    Is there any other way to do it without using exact pixels?

    Thanks in advance
