    This may not be the right place, but I am looking for help on a theme that I am trying to do something that I think is very simple. Everything I have done so far with the css has resulted crappy results.

    What I am trying to do is move my sidebar from the bottom of the page to the right side.

    If anyone has any ideas that would be amazing or would be able to direct me to the right spot would also be much appreciated.

    It is for the Wu wei theme that I am unable to post

    Ok, I'm going to be honest with you here...

    Why bother with moving the sidebar?


    That particular theme is designed for the sidebar to be at the bottom. Could I fix it to the way you are looking for? Yes, but it's not worth my time to look at since quite honestly there are hundreds of themes out there that already do what you want them to do and are completely free.

    And, IMHO, look better than that one.

    I'm not meaning to seem like an ass here, but that's my opinion.


    If you're fixated on using that theme, you need to adjust page width, header width, content width, sidebar width, and footer width. And ensure that content is float:left; and sidebar float:right. This is just speculation of course since while I looked at the theme, I didn't look at the css. But that should be enough of a hint.

    Again just like Dionysus said,

    This is not a CSS issue. If you are really interested in making your own style themes use Catalyst which is the new Frugal. It is similar to Thesis but I think it is way easier and much better support. With that system you can basically mimic any theme out there and you can put the sidebar in the header with just a click here and a hook there.

    Give it a go, you can find Frugal online to try before you buy
