Primary sidebar vs Secondary sidebar location

Primary Sidebar Secondary Sidebar

Thank you Catrina.  It worked like a charm.  Please mark as closed/resolved.

Edit:  Sorry Catrina.  I spoke too soon.  I simply dragged the Primary Sidebar to SB2 and the Secondary Sidebar to SB1 (in D & D) thinking that would solve my issue.  Unfortunately, it didn't.  I am sure you understand what I am trying to do.  I am sure what you told me is likely the answer.  Somehow, it went over my head.  

 

Again, I have the site setup pretty much as I want it.  The bulk of the site is two columns with the content on the left and the Primary Sidebar on the right.  On a few pages in the PageLines Meta Setup, I have chosen the 3 column option:  SB, Content, SB.  Presently (my original issue), when I view the site those pages appear as:  Primary Sidebar, Content, Secondary Sidebar on the pages where I want three columns.  I would like it appear as Secondary Sidebar, Content, Primary Sidebar.  As you can see, I want the Primary Sidebar to always remain on the right and on those pages where I want/need the additional Sidebar, I want to keep the Primary Sidebar on the right and the Secondary Sidebar to appear to the left of the content.

Hello All,

 

I presently have a site that is laid out in a two column format (content on left, primary sidebar on right). 

 

On certain pages, I want to implement another sidebar making it a three column page.  I want the content to appear between the two sidebars. 

 

Once I implement the secondary sidebar, my site appears as:  primary sidebar, content, secondary sidebar.  However, I want it to appear as:  secondary sidebar, content, primary sidebar - meaning I always want the primary sidebar to remain on the right with the new (or special (or secondary) sidebar to appear to the left of the content.   

 

How do I best accomplish this?

On those select pages where you want 3 columns, you'll need to select the left column, 2-sidebar layout in PageLines Meta Settings (in the page editor for those pages):

You can set up the sidebars and widgets accordingly in Drag & Drop and the Widgets screen.
