View Full Version : Adding sidebar problem

Hello all!

I need help with some coding and appreciate any help!

I would very much like to add a tagboard to the right side of my blog's preset template but don't know how with my very rudimentary knowledge of html and css. I tried looking at the code and can only conclude that the body width is 500px and don't know how to add a column on the right beyond that.

Below is the coding for my blog. The blog in question is gnette.tumblr.com .

The second half of the coding is in the next post as it was too long to fit in one post.

Please please help as I tried reading up on adding sidebars or columns but can't really seem to get any of them to work... :c

Thanks for reading,
Jeanette
