Move the Kubrick Sidebar to the left

Moving the Kubrick sidebar to the left side: The default Kubrick template that comes with WordPress is great straight out of the box. However, some people prefer to have their pages and posts laid out differently. One change I’ve seen many wish to implement is a left sidebar. By default, the sidebar is located on the right side of the page rather than the left. The following tutorial explains how to easily move the sidebar from right to left.

The kubrick left sidebar tutorial:

Login to your WordPress admin panel

From the navigation menu, select Design and then select Theme Editor from the sub menu.

Within the Theme Editor, select Stylesheet from the theme files listed vertically to the right. The Style.css file should now be presented in the editor window and is ready for editing.

From the editor window, find the following code:

.narrowcolumn {
float: left;
padding: 0 0 20px 45px;
margin: 0px 0 0;
width: 450px;
}

Replace it with the following code:

.narrowcolumn {
float: right;
padding: 0 45px 20px 0px;
margin: 0px 0 0;
width: 450px;
}

Next find the following code:

#sidebar
{
padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
margin-left: 545px;
width: 190px;
}

Replace with the following:

#sidebar
{
padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
margin-left: 20px;
width: 190px;
}

Click the Update File button on the lower right hand side of the Theme Editor screen.

You’ll need to edit the kubrickbg.jpg and upload it to your /wp-content/themes/default/images directory, overwriting the old file, as it contains an image for the right, not left side.

Open your website in your internet browser and refresh the page.

Congratulations you should now have your Kubrick sidebar on the left!
