I was wondering if it’s possible to add a new sidebar to the left, so I can be running both the left and right sidebars?
I was able to move things around and increased the size of the layout to make room for a left sidebar, but I still can’t figure out how to add one to the left.
Am I able to add the sidebar with hooks? If so, any tips on how to use them, because I never have.
Not at the moment, and I suspect I probably won’t be adding it in the future as well. This is because the content area of the theme is already small as it stands now with just one sidebar to the right. Adding another sidebar to the left will cause the content area to be squeezed further, and I don’t think many people would want that.
Of course, the right sidebar and the container can both be resized to accommodate another sidebar to the left, but this will cause a lot of disruptions to existing theme users who have already adjusted their sidebar items to fit just nicely in the current sidebar.
Of course, you can do the modifications yourself using a child theme and resize them to your heart’s content.
