    Is it possible (e.g. via child CSS) to use only one sidebar and one column with the Sunspot theme?

    The blog I need help with is navigatingcomplexity.net.

    I’d like to stay with the Sunspot theme if cutting down to one sidebar/one column is no big deal. Does it require a lot of recoding? If so, maybe I should just select a theme that starts with one sidebar/one column.

    Looks like you found Sunspot’s Theme Options panel in the WP Admin dashboard:

    Are you all set?

    Thanks for the response but I’m not all set in this respect yet. I’m confused by terminology here, specifically the reference to “one sidebar”. It appears to me both in the image you link to above and in my current online layout that there are two sidebars not one. Here’s what I’m hoping can be done. I would like to eliminate the
    dark black “sidebar” on the left and keep only the one on the right. I have removed all widgets from the left “sidebar”. Only an image, the site title and the subtitle remain there. I would like to move them either to the top of the right sidebar or to a header above the column and right sidebar. By eliminating the left “sidebar”, I’d like to make the one column for blog text wider.

    I’m having problems finding CSS code that I would like to modify through child code — but I’ll open a separate thread for that.

    Thanks for your help.

    You can try asking for help with that modification over in the CSS Customization forum.

    Thanks, I will seek help in locating CSS code in the CSS Customization forum.

    But what about the issue of moving the site title and subtitle to the right sidebar and minimizing the far left column or “sidebar” ? Can that also be resolved through CSS customization? Thanks.

    That’s the modification for which I was suggesting you post in the CSS forum. The only way to attempt that change would be via CSS – there’s no theme option to do that.

    Thanks, Kathryn. I’ll bring that question over there.
