Upgrade Alyeska to 3.14

    Hello Jason,

    I have been using Alyeska version 2.15 with style modifications you helped me make 12 months ago to my website

    I upgrade to version 3.14 and it has changed the spacing on the RHS widget.

    Can you please advise how I can make changes to the spacing to get it back the way it was.

    I have uploaded before and after images.

    In your child theme’s custom.css, change this:

    .sidebar_left #content, .sidebar_right #content { width:69.96%; }
    .sidebar_left .fixed-sidebar, .sidebar_right .fixed-sidebar { width:26.04%;  background-color: #FBFCD6;}

    To this:

    .sidebar_left #content, .sidebar_right #content {
    	width: 69.96%;
    .sidebar_left .fixed-sidebar, .sidebar_right .fixed-sidebar {
    	width: 26.04%;
    .sidebar_left .fixed-sidebar-inner,
    .sidebar_right .fixed-sidebar-inner {
    	background-color: #FBFCD6 !important;

    Also, a nice thing about Alyeska 3.0+, is that you can now put your custom CSS in style.css of your child theme, which many people find makes it more accessible to edit. So, if you want, you can copy everything from your current /assets/css/custom.css to your style.css. And in your child theme’s functions.php, you can delete the reference to that custom.css file.


    Dear Jason,

    Thank you for your advice which I have followed to effect most of the original look. See attached link:

    The last thing I am trying to do is “widen” the “yellow” right hand sidebar into the div class “row-grid protection” where there is additional unused space at the far right hand edge.

    But despite using Firebug, I cannot find where you set the actual widths?

    Any hints, please?

    Jason Bobich

    The widths are being set from your own custom styles that we’re discussing presently. I noticed you were setting custom widths, and so I included them in the code snippet I placed above here.

    Remove this, and you’ll see how the sidebar and content sit naturally:

    Note: You’ve also got more styles messing with these layout widths in your Custom CSS option, as well. So, simply deleting them from custom.css won’t do it.
