Post subject: Adding Sidebars to subSilver based styles.

See this post about the proper way to edit phpbb files:

Adding Sidebars to subSilver based styles.

For sidebars on both sides.

open overall_header.tpl
add this to the very bottom of the file:
Code:
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%">
<tr>
<td width="200" align="center" valign="top">

   <span class="gen">code for left sidebar</span>

</td>
<td width="100%" align="center" valign="top">

open overall_footer.tpl
add this to the very top of the file:
Code:
</td>
<td width="200" align="center" valign="top">

  <span class="gen">code for right sidebar</span>

</td>
</tr>
</table>

save both files and upload back to the server.

For just the left side:

open overall_header.tpl
add this to the very bottom of the file:
Code:
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%">
<tr>
<td width="200" align="center" valign="top">

   <span class="gen">code for left sidebar</span>

</td>
<td width="100%" align="center" valign="top">

open overall_footer.tpl
add this to the very top of the file:
Code:
</td>

</tr>
</table>

save , upload back to the server.

For just the right side:

open overall_header.tpl
add this to the very bottom of the file:
Code:
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%">
<tr>

<td width="100%" align="center" valign="top">

open overall_footer.tpl
add this to the very top of the file:
Code:
</td>
<td width="200" align="center" valign="top">

  <span class="gen">code for right sidebar</span>

</td>
</tr>
</table>

save, upload back to the server.

Now, depending on which sidebars you want, you can edit those files to add whatever text/html etc. you want in your sidebars.

not much to show in a screen shot. subsilver2 with a sidebar/column either on one side or the other or both.
you can put whatever you want in the sidebars/columns.

test it on your board to see how it looks.
or, you can look here:
http://www.phpbbhacks.com/phpbb2/greystylusp/demo/

that is done in the same basic way and adds some phpbb navigation to the sidebar but you can put anything you want in it.

this one is actually closer to what it would look like:
