Theme Updates: Custom Content Width + Double Sidebar
Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know that we’ve released an update for all of our themes with a couple highly requested features. Our SportsPress themes were designed with a maximum content width of around 1000 pixels, but many of you have been looking for a way to increase this width. In addition, an option has been added that lets you choose to move the sidebar to either side of the main content.
Custom Content Width
An option has been added to the customizer for increasing or decreasing the Content Width. You can preview these changes instantly as you drag the slider around.
Since the columns inside are based on percentages of the content width, you’ll notice that their width also changes proportionally.
In addition, we’ve also added an option to select the sidebar location. This will default to Right for left-to-right languages, or Left for right-to-left languages. Select None to always use a full-width template with no sidebar, or Both for an epic double sidebar layout.
If you choose to go with the double sidebar, you’ll have one empty sidebar at first. Save changes and head over to Appearance > Widgets, and you’ll find a new sidebar section called Sidebar 2. Drag widgets into here to make them appear in the additional sidebar.
All of our premium SportsPress themes have been equipped with these new features. Here’s how each one of them look with increased content width and double sidebar:
How to Update Your Theme
If you’ve already purchased a theme from us and you have an active license, you can update your theme from the admin panel. Be sure that you’ve entered your license key via Appearance > Theme License.
Alternatively, you can download the latest version by visiting your ThemeBoy Account and clicking the Download Theme button.
That’s all for now. I hope you enjoy this update!
