Hi, I’m looking for some help. On the blog/front page of my site i am using the ‘Three Column sidebar left and right’the templete which i have adjusted using CSS in a child theme. This works wonderfully with my posts and slider in middle and widgets either side. For the rest of my site i want to use the ‘Two columns, sidebar on the right’ Template to display the same widgets as my right column of my as my blog/front page.
The problem i have is that the ‘Two columns, sidebar on the right’ template shows Sidebar1 on the right rather than Sidebar2 unlike the other template i’m using meaning it is showing the wrong widgets and is wider than i want it as i had changed the widgth of the sidebars in my CSS for my blog/front page.
Does anyone know how i can bring up Sidebar2 instead of Sidebar1 in the ‘Two columns, sidebar on the right’ template?
I’m not great with PHP but is there a solution using that or another work around?

You know, I recall Syahir mentioning something about this issue; but I don’t remember enough to give you a specific answer.
Let’s wait for his response.
Actually, maybe this was addressed in the latest version of Graphene (released a couple of days ago). Have you updated to the latest version (1.6)?January 30, 2012 at 9:24 pm #22990
Josh, Graphene 1.6 hasn’t been released yet, but it will be (very) soon.January 30, 2012 at 11:05 pm #22991JoshMember
Many apologies. I saw an update in my themes and assumed it was Graphene. It was another, extremely inferior theme I had first installed and never removed.
(Out of curiosity)… will it address the issue mentioned above?January 30, 2012 at 11:16 pm #22992
In Graphene 1.6, the positioning of the sidebars will be consistent. That is, sidebar1 will always be on the right side, and sidebar2 will always be on the left side, regardless of column mode.
Which also means:
Two-column right sidebar => sidebar1 shown on the right
Two-column left sidebar => sidebar2 shown on the left (used to be sidebar1 shown on the left)
Three-column left and right sidebar => sidebar1 shown on the right, sidebar2 shown on the left
… and so on.January 30, 2012 at 11:25 pm #22993
Anything i can do in the meantime as this is stopping me develop my site. I really like Graphene but if i can’t solve this i am probably going to have to look for another theme which i really don’t want to do.January 30, 2012 at 11:37 pm #22994
Patience, young Padawan! No single theme will suit all your needs. That’s what custom-developed paid-for-with-a-premium themes are for.
But hey, the wait may not be that long:
Or if you like, you can always grab the beta and use that until Graphene 1.6 is released:January 30, 2012 at 11:45 pm #22995
Thanks, i didn’t realise the update was just around the corner. Until then i’m going to give the beta a go. Thanks again, I will let you know how i find it.January 31, 2012 at 4:42 am #22996
Works a treat, awesome work. The things you have added like being able to change column sizes really cuts down on the CSS i needed to do. Will post my site when its finished.
