How to move sidebar to the top in mobile?

    Using the 2016 theme. No idea how to edit the theme with any kind of code. Using free version, so unable to use plugins. My problem is that on mobile the sidebar, which contains the search and categories widgets, appears at the bottom of the page, which is bad because the infinite scrolling (which I’d prefer to keep) means you can’t reach those widgets until you’ve scrolled through every single post.
    How can I fix this by making the search and categories widgets always appear at the top of the page or on the right, even on mobile? Or forcing desktop view on mobile would be another solution.
    Help with any of this would be much appreciated 😀

    The blog I need help with is



    The mobile default theme is provided for those who run older themes that aren’t the gold standard which is responsive layout. The mobile ready theme is a default theme and a completely different theme that you do not need to enable, if your theme is listed as a responsive layout theme here

    A responsive layout theme adapts automatically to different screen sizes so that your website will work (and be optimized for) iPhones, iPads, Android and other mobile devices. When responsive width themes are viewed on mobiles sidebars appear below the posts in order to provide as much space as possible for reading.

    When we use a responsive theme we disable the mobile theme. Go to >Dashboard > Appearance > Mobile and disable the mobile theme
