    Yes, you can have both a right hand and left hand sidebar on the Able theme. It doesn’t display both on the live demo site or the detailed theme description page https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/able/ but I have used it and it’s a very clean and quick loading theme too.

    Sunspot looks horrid

    I’l LOL :D. Theme appreciation is very subjective. I’m not being mean or anything but to me Digg3 looks horrid and I wouldn’t dream of using it even before it was retired.

    Go to my comment above at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/links-not-working-when-signed-in/page/2?replies=43#post-2363022

    After you change your theme all you need to do is go here Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. The widget contents and settings will be the same as they were prior to changing themes.

    Digg 3 without CSS was horrible. But I love Digg 3 with CSS.

    So if you switch themes you can reduce the size of the images in widgets and then they will fit into a narrower sidebar.

    NOTE: For a one sidebar theme that has very wide sidebar check out Reddle https://wordpress.com/themes/reddle

    Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):
    The main column width in Reddle maxes out at 440 when the layout is fixed.
    The sidebar maxes out at 284 when the layout is fixed.
    The custom header image is 1120 by 252.

    re: site loading time
    Your website is faster than 45% of all tested websites.

    That would never ever satisfy me. Check put my blog and how clean it is and how fast it loads to comprehend where I as a blogging tips blogger am coming from. My site is wearing the clean and responsive Expound theme https://wordpress.com/themes/expound and the site loading time for it is faster than 90% of all tested websites.

    These are the ways to reduce page loading time:
    1. Edit posts and insert “the more tag” so only excerpts appear on the fort page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    2. Reduce the number of posts appearing on the front page here > Settings > Reading
    Blog pages show at most _ posts

    3. Reduce the number of images and or media embeds displayed and/or make them smaller.

    4. Reduce the number of widgets in the sidebar and footer areas.

    You may think so but appearances are deceiving and it is not the aesthetics that create traffic to your site. It’s the value of the content in it, no matter which theme is showcasing it. Your website is faster than 48% of all tested websites and in my league that sucks. http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/dqoFSM/http://cparmycentral.com/

    mine is better than 70% tested. Is that good?

    If it’s good enough for you, then the answer will be yes. And as you are reluctant to chnage themes that will be your answer.

    But it isn’t mine. My answer would be no. My site it is faster than 90% of all tested website and I will not settle for less than that. I would make the required adjustments to improve it.

    Also note that although what I post next does not apply to your blog and it on no way meant to insult anyone posting here and waiting for Staff to fix the theme, I would never in a million years pay $30 yer year to have a CSS upgrade on retired no-responsive theme that does not support all wordpress.com features, and then add a bunch of stuff that makes it load like pig, who is truffle hunting in quicksand.

    Does every forum devolve into a dissertation into the relative appearance and/or performance of everyone’s else’s blog… or do some issues get resolved? All I wish to know is 1. What’s the problem? and 2. Can it be resolved by WordPress since, unlike your first conclusions, it wasn’t in fact ‘on my end’? That’s what I would like to know. I’m sure you are quite the expert on all things WordPress but I am curious if you speak for management or just for yourself…

    No.
    Does everyone who does not like what’s said about a theme they hold near and dear launch passive aggressive attacks when another gives it a thumbs down.
    No again.
    Most aren’t that stupid.

    I have never purported to be Staff and the member link under my username makes it clear that I am not Staff.

    I am a Volunteer and I have answered questions here for 9 years. That’s longer than all but one Support Staff member has been on Staff and I predate all support docs as well.

    For greater clarity know that no one online here ever intimidate me by innuendo ie. by suggesting that I have tried to pass myself off as Staff, when I have never done that.

    You maybe be frustrated but I think we all agreed on page 1 of this thread that this appears to be a theme specific issue, and that the retired Digg3 theme appears to be the only theme affected. On that page I stated that I had tagged this thread for Staff.

    On page 1 of this thread zakdude’s comment in part was:

    This is also something I hope the WP staff can fix fast, because in our little sub-community, this will greatly hinder us. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/links-not-working-when-signed-in?replies=53#post-2362875

    As I sympathized and responded by saying:

    I don’t think the fix will necessarily be fast as it’s a weekend and that means patience is required. https://en.support.wordpress.com/help-support-options/#timeline-for-answers-to-support-requests

    The bottom line is that threads tagged for Staff get resolved as Staff work their way through the threads from the earliest posted and tagged for their attention to the most recently posted and tagged.

    It is a weekend. There are fewer Staff working than there are on the other days of the week. How long it takes to clear the threads and support tickets depends on how many Happiness Engineers are working on them at any given point in time. It also depends on how complex the issues in each thread and ticket are are. That means your patience is required as Staff may not even get to this thread today.

    P.S. As you do not have any CSS editing that I’m aware of on your site you are free to try switching to another theme temporarily while waiting for Staff assistance and see if that resolves the issue or not.

    Hmmm – https://archiearchive.wordpress.com is also Digg3 and has the same problem. I’ll keep watching this thread for Support’s answer.

    #2365154

    I’m having the same problem.

    #2365156

    I decided to switch to a new theme to solve the problem. It’s working fine now. I’m glad that is cleared up. It sure was frustrating when I didn’t know what was going on. I’m glad I wasn’t alone with this problem. Thanks for all the helpful comments!

    I see you switched to Able on https://cpwaterninjasarmy.wordpress.com/ and I see both a right hand and left hand sidebar using Firefox 37. Try clearing your browser cache please https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/ Make sure you are running a browser and version of it found at http://browsehappy.com and upgrade if required.

    Here’s how your site displays in different devices https://www.responsinator.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcpwaterninjasarmy.wordpress.com%2F Be sure to scroll through them all.

    Here’s the result of the Google mobile ready test for your site https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcpwaterninjasarmy.wordpress.com%2F

    @everyone
    I am so sorry for the inconvenience and if I could fix it for you I would but I can’t. You may want to try switching to another theme temporarily while waiting for Staff assistance and see if that resolves the issue or not.

    All free responsive layout themes are here
    https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/responsive-layout/?sort=free

    The 13 Free Three Columns + Responsive Layout WordPress Themes are here https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/responsive-layout+three-columns/?sort=free

    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    The mobile ready theme at > Dashboard > Appearance > Mobile is the default and it is a completely different theme that you do not need to enable at all when you use a responsive layout theme. When we use a responsive theme we disable the mobile theme.

    A responsive layout theme adapts 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.
