    Smile Adding sidebar and formatting

    Hello,

    I just finished aligning my posts (thanks for the help!) and now I'm trying to add a sidebar. You can see page I want to add it to here: http://www.zoiology.com/category/blog/guides/

    I'm not sure how to find the code or where to put it. Sorry, my coding knowledge is pretty limited but I'm not finding documentation on my theme's home site.

    One other thing I'd also like to fix is the formatting. It seems to have been ruined during my other changes. Here is a link to the original theme and how the sidebar should look. Notice the dramatic difference in the way each widget displays the text. I'm not sure why mine is so crunched together and the other side is so nice.

    Thanks again for the help!

    Hello again swedy13,
    You can add another column by placing a new div element inside your existing #wrapper.
    You will need to float your column left or right and you will need to increase the width of your #wapper to accomodate the new column.

    Have a look at a basic 2-column layout to get an idea how to do all this.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
