    I decided to try a left sidebar, but remembered that I had previously raised the right sidebar widgets by shrinking the margin, with your help. So now my sidebar heights are off.

    What would the css be to shrink the top margin in the LEFT sidebar?

    Copied this out of my current CSS, I think this is the CSS you gave me to shrink the top margin @ right sidebar:

    #main .widget-area {
    float: right;
    margin: 10px 0 60px;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 31.6%;

    Thanks a bunch!
    Always enjoy customizing this theme!

    The blog I need help with is dianeluna.com


    Hi Diane,

    The following CSS should do the trick:

    body.three-columns #main #tertiary {
    margin: 0 0 60px;

    This only works on the left sidebar, and doesn’t replace the previous CSS for the right sidebar.

    Worked awesome!

    Although… now the left is higher than the right.

    Weird, they are both called out at 60?



    You can always adjust the top margin for the left sidebar so that it’s lined up with the right. You may have to eyeball it and see what looks best to you. For example, the following will move the left sidebar down by two pixels:

    body.three-columns #main #tertiary {
    margin: 2px 0 60px;

    Weird, they are both called out at 60?

    I’m not quite sure what you’re asking. Could you clarify? The 60px is just the bottom margin on the sidebars.

    Thank you! I was thinking the 60px was the top margin on sidebars, not bottom. (Had it reversed in my mind.) So I added a few pixels at the top, calling out pixels in the right order, per your above suggestion and just eyeballed it and it worked.

    Thanks again for your team’s ever-wonderful support!

    I think this topic could close.




    Great! Thanks for letting us know, Diane. :) I’m marking this as resolved and closing the thread – feel free to start a new one if you need further help.
