    Hi,

    Wondering if there’s any way to remove the left column in the blog layout? On my current setting (http://www.acornfactory.org/blog-2/), it only has permalink in the left column and I wanted to just remove that column and have the content (i.e., the posts) take over that area. How will any change affect the layout of each post. For example, in this post (http://www.acornfactory.org/2011/11/26/michelle-rhee-speech-1-education-in-2010-part-1-of-3/), what happens to the “Related Posts” and “Leave a Reply”?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Try going the Pages > Blog. Edit the Blog page and find the ‘Layout’ section. You can see that it has a dropdown button with a default value of ‘Use default’ change it to ‘no sidebar’ and click the ‘Update’ button. Hope it helps. :)

    Best Regards,

    Ismael,

    I may not be making myself clear. I want to preserve the right column that has my widgets (description, recent posts, categories, archives). What I want to get rid of is the left area which is largely dead space and only includes the permalink for each post.

    Here’s the link to the blog page for reference. http://www.acornfactory.org/blog-2/

    Hi!

    Try following css code (I’d add it to css/custom.css:

    .small_image .blog-meta, .dual-sidebar .blog-meta, .template-blog .entry-content {
    float: left;
    width: 680px;
    }

    .template-blog .mini_slider {
    display: none;
    }

    Best regards,

    Peter

    Peter,

    That worked in eliminating the left column, but I have one last issue – the post titles haven’t moved.

    Hi,

    For the post titles, try adding this code to custom.css:

    Code:
    #top .template-blog .post-title {
    margin-left: 0!important;
    }

    Hope this helps. :)

    Best Regards,

    Ismael
