Does this still work? I'm just now trying it, but it didn't work for me, even after refresh.
It worked for me on your site. Did you happened to add the text Code to move wide column to left: ? That would make it bomb. I ask, because I did this, LOL. I think I'll add comment marker to this text, just in case.
/* Code to move wide column to left: */
I was pasting it into custom code instead of appearance. So glad you said it worked for you, it made me read the instructions slower. doh. Works great!
LOL, glad you figured it out!
This tip looks to be close to what I want to do. Can I modify this code to:
I want the sign in box and all items in the green box to show on every page, but on the left side,
and have a wider center area to help shorten the distance needed to scroll from top to bottom.
Swapping columns has a huge domino effect on Ning. So short answer, I don't think this can be done without a ton of code and testing.
Sorry, wish I had better news. I would go with using one of the layouts in the new design studio instead. I realize there isn't a layout exactly as you've described, but at least you would get closer.
I just tested this. I used the Layout A3 from Design Studio. Then I quickly installed the code above to Advanced CSS (Firebug for me), and it appears to work perfectly. You'll have to test and make sure all is well, but looking at my original code, it should work.
I don't think it can be done, no - - not easily if at all. The column that shows on all pages is the issue.
