    Hi! I’d like to change the width of my sidebars, but I am not familiar enough with CSS to do this myself. It would be great if you’d put this option back into the theme as it was in earlier years.

    I have some CSS code figured out, but unfortunately this leads to the sidebar space not only th change its width on those pages where I have set a sidebar, but it’s also showing up empty on every other page on my website, even though no sidebar is set. Of course I want it only on those pages I chose.

    Here’s the code I found:

    @media (min-width: 768px) {
    #primary {
    -ms-flex: 0 0 75.000000%;
    flex: 0 0 75.000000%;
    max-width: 75.000000%;
    }

    #secondary {
    -ms-flex: 0 0 25.000000%;
    flex: 0 0 25.000000%;
    max-width: 25.000000%;
    }
    }

    @media (min-width: 768px)
    .col-md-4 {
    -ms-flex: 0 0 25.000000%;
    flex: 0 0 25.000000%;
    max-width: 25.000000%;
    }
    @media (min-width: 576px)
    .col-sm-12 {
    -ms-flex: 0 0 75.000000%;
    flex: 0 0 75.000000%;
    max-width: 75.000000%;
    }

    To prevent the sidebar space showing up on every page and only with the set sidebar on those I want it to, there must be some more code that I don’t know. I’m just learning by doing …

    Can you give me examples of the pages? For instance, all blog pages or some specific URLs. I will try to come up with a solution for you.

    Thanks. This might be a bit tricky, because I have so many pages where the sidebar has to show up and also a lot of pages where I have set it to no sidebar. Ant it is not only one sidebar, but another custum sidebar as well.

    All blog pages must have the sidebar (It’s sidebar 1 in my theme settings) and also pages like https://www.petra-schier.de/petras-welt/. But this one is only one of many examples. For several reasons I have created new pages for almost every category in my blog. One of the reasons is, that I cannot change the look of category pages in evolve+. It would be great if that might be possible someday. But until then I create a new page for each category and make it look like I want it to and use a plugin to import the specific category posts.

    I think this might be a problem for you to come up with a CSS code that helps me with my problem?

    It would be a bit too tricky… You would have to be adding CSS classes every time you create or change a page. This isn’t a good management practice. We will think of a solution for such a use case. I’m sorry I can’t help you more right now.

    That’s okay, I already thought so. But maybe it is possible to bring back that function in the Customizer to change the width of sidebars. I’m sure not only I would greatly appreciate it.
