Change your left sidebar width on pages

With Prelude Lite, you get some layouts that gives you a “left sidebar column” for your blog or page templates. The layout structure for this theme uses the Bootstrap grid framework, so there are preset widths applied to columns. However, I’ve added a new option setting that lets you make a minor adjustment to the size of your left column… here are the approximate sizes for column content at their fullest width:

  • Default Left Sidebar Column Width = 356 pixels
  • Using the Smaller Option = 256 pixels

Switch to the Smaller Column

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Options
  2. If you are resizing the blog layout when using the left sidebar column, then you can go to Appearance >> Customize >> Blog Options
  3. Look for the “Use Smaller Left Sidebar Column” setting and check the box next to it
