    Dear all,

    First of all I want to say that I am absolutely lucky with the Newscast Theme on my WordPress. As I am now organising everything to my own needs I came to a few questions;

    1. Now I have a content bar on the left and two sidebars on the right. Is it possible to move one of the sidebars to the right? So yu have left sidebar, content, right sidebar?

    2. After that I want to move the thumbnail above the text in each post. Would that be possible?

    3. I’ve read certain topic to adjust the height of the header but I couldn’t manage it yet. In the style.css I adjusted

    4. Is it possible to change the height of the lightbox?

    I know it’s a lot of questions at once. I’ve done some research already on the website but couldn’t find the right answer. So I would be really helped!



    1.) Yes the sidebar can be moved but this is quite a significant modification. You need to separate the content in sidebar.php, create a 2nd sidebar file (e.g. sidebar-left.php) and then adjust the individual page templates to call the 2nd sidebar as well. So where you have:


    you’d need to add:


    (assuming you called the file sidebar-left.php) before the page content area.

    2.) Again yes it can be done; in each of the template files you need to move the image code above the title.

    3.) What’s the site URL? I can’t see what you’ve done without it :)

    4.) Yes, you need to adjust the image size and the lightbox should be resized automatically.

    If you need help implementing your customisations, there is a topic over at Theme Forest if you need to hire someone: (Purchase code hidden if logged out)(Purchase code hidden if logged out) -to-make-some-money/24795

    Hope this helps!



    Hi James,

    That support option sounds great. My website is

    What would the cost be to let one of ‘your customizers’ do step 1 and 2?

    Thanks in advance!

    About question 4; changing featured image size. When I do it through the message board – adjust message – featured image, it changes automatically to the medium size when I save it as thumbnail size. Do you have a solution for it? Thanks in advance again. Cheers, Claudia


    I am trying do adjust the height of the header, And I don’t understand that nothing happens if i paste te following code in the style.css


    background:url(“”) repeat-x scroll 0 -50 #FFFFFF;




    Ik already adjusted header.php as well.. Could you please advise?

    Moreover, I see some differences in Explorer and Chrome as well… Like explorer seems to look good ( still want header to be less height), but in chrome the menu is pushed into the header..

    Thanks a lot in advance…
