    First off, great theme! It’s working well and looks good.

    On my blog posts, I wanted the content section to be a little bit wider. Can I eliminate one of the two sidebars so I can increase the width of the content section?

    I do want to have 1 column sidebar for navigation, etc. but having two is making my content too narrow.

    I would appreciate any help.


    Can you please respond?



    sorry for the late reply. I missed your post :(

    First you need to change the sidebar settings – go to Newscast Options > Sidebar & Footer – there you need to change the “Sidebar Count” to “one big sidebar”.

    Then you need to modify style.css – you need to change the width values of following two entries:

    #content, .entry-no-pic .entry-content{
    padding:0 0 50px 20px;
    float: left;
    margin:0 20px 0 0;
    overflow: hidden;


    #top .fullwidth_sidebar{

    I.e. if you increase the content width to 680px (instead of 580px) you need to decrease the sidebar width to 240px (instead of 340px).


    It would be nice to combine those two into a new template for posts – on the top a full wide picture with sidebar or double sidebars underneath. Width of the content box could stay as normal.

    Perhaps I have missed this – is there a possibility to for us, users to show their project based on newscast? Something like a showroom for users seeking inspiration how to modify, customize etc.

    Another thing which could come handy would be some kind of wiki or FAQ where all collected wisdom of the support forum could be structurally organized and answered. It is sometimes tiresome to search and look for the right answer in separate threads.

    it’s possible to create own post templates by using plugins like: – I had a request about this topic two days ago:

    Of course it’s quite a bit of work to do all modifications you want because Newscast has a completely different structure (small featured images, sidebar on the right side and not underneath the image, etc. but it’s possible.

    We have a faq section but I must admit it isn’t used. I’ll talk to Kriesi – maybe we/I can extend this section a bit but at the moment I’ve not enough rights so…I think a great idea would be to ask the users which posts helped them most :)
