Float sidebar to the left?

  • Is it possible to float the main sidebar (the forum, dashboard, etc. sidebar) to the left of the page? If it is, how is it done?

    No, but I have managed to do it on my own... sort of. I was able to move the sidebar to the left but the max-width can't be changed or the sidebar ends up under the main content.


  • I can't speak to the advisability, but the below will move the bar to the left side and the content to the right. You may need a clearfix class on a specific div depending on where you're at to prevent things from "getting stupid".

    That works but leaves a large blank space if someone collapses the sidebar, as the content will not expand to fill it in. I guess you could hide the collapse button as an option.

  • So, you're saying it's not advisable? ;)

    LOL, I think it's ok, but if someone is going to do it, they should hide the collapse button #main > div > div > .sidebar > span > .collapsibleButton {display: none;}.
