Hi there. I am fairly new to Pagelines, and I really have very limited experience with CSS. However, I'm trying to recreate an already functioning website in Framework. I've got a sidebar image added, but I'm wanting it to repeat down the side of the page. I've searched the forums, and I have tried some different code, but nothing seems to be working. Here is the website I'm trying to recreate:

As I said, at the moment, I'm focusing on the sidebar. Here's my progress:

First, you renamed your theme folder. That is a big no-no. :)

Change pagelines-template-theme back to just pagelines.

Next, we would need you to make a page with the sidebar enabled to help you out.

If you need help determining CSS elements, I recommend you

. The one you need is most likely a sidebar-wrap element, but just guessing right now.

Huh. I don't even know how I did that. I think I'm in a bit over my head. For some reason, I just cannot seem to wrap my head around Pagelines AT ALL. I'm a smart girl, too. (I think. LOL.) And, I totally thought I had created a page with a sidebar enabled. See? Over my head... Alright well, thanks so much, Jenny. I appreciate your response. :)

The page you linked above is just an author page (

) so it's hard to tell what going on. I see that you do have a one sidebar right layout with a universal sidebar in it, but nothing is showing up. You most likely have the box checked to hide sidebars when empty (no widgets). For testing purposes, I recommend turning this back off (PageLines -> Settings -> Website Setup -> Remove Default Sidebars When Empty).
