I wonder if somebody can look at this image and tell me how to implement the layout in it using platform pro:
Posted Image

As you can see, we're trying to get the sidebar to extend all the way from the header to the footer with no empty space between (the sidebar in this case is the blue area in the image). It seems that the real problem in making this happen is that the menu needs to be relocated to the top of the left pane, instead of what currently seems to be on top of the content area. Is this possible without tearing the theme apart?

Thanks!

Most sections are full width e.g. branding, nav, features, etc You may have to add your own menu using a hook to place it in the page content template area. Otherwise workaround it with background images that give you a faux layout, but based on the image it's hard to tell if there are other hurdles you may encounter.
