how can I change Primary Sidebar width?

Recommended Posts


Dear PageLines team,

Hi. How are you doing today?


While I was editing my website, something happened to my Primary SIdebar.
It looks like this. [x]  Unfortunately, I have no idea why this has happened.

This width cannot afford what I want to show (e.g. categories, monthly archives) in each line.

Would you kindly tell me how to adjust the width?


Thank you in advance for your support.

Hi hjerterom333,


In the DMS editor you can set column width. This is probably what went wrong wile editing your website.

If you adjust the column with for your sidebar to a 'normal' width, all should be good again (I think).


I'm not a pagelines employee, just trying to help :)


But this is how I think you should do it, find the "column width" settings on the left upper side of the column and set it wider (for example, my width in this exact column is 12/12).

Hope it helped. Anyway, good luck!

Hi metehankul,

Thank you so much for your reply.
And I also have to apologize for my mistake.

I realized I had posted to the wrong forum.
I use PageLines Lite (free) version.
I am terribly terribly terribly sorry.


PageLines DMS seems rather nice!
I'm thinking about starting DMS instead of Lite.

Thank you again for your support.
Yes, you helped me quite a lot :)

Take care!

Thanks @metehankul  for your help with this one. 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      My sidebar is now showing up below the content, but only on the homepage. 
      I've tried disabling plug-ins individually, checking column width, and <div> tag errors on the page as well as in individual posts that are displayed on my homepage. I don't know exactly when this issue arose, so I don't know what else to try! 
      Here's the page link:

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.

      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      I am having an issue with the size of the font in a text box widget on my sidebar. It has me completely baffled because I have two text widgets on my sidebar and the other one is displaying perfectly. 
      The sole difference between the two is the amount of text in the widget, but that can't be the problem.
      My site is: loveandnudes.com and the text widgets are on the right side at the top. 
      I have duplicated the one with the issue and I am fiddling with it right now to see if I can find a solution. But I would love any suggestions. I though CSS would do the trick, but either I tried the wrong thing - or I put it into the wrong place.
      Thanks for your help!

      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that?
