    First, I can install a child theme & need to know what to add to fix this.

    My friend has a laptop with a 1440px resolution screen & he says this theme makes both sidebars disappear.

    (The widget bar & the normal sidebar don’t show up.)

    They show up fine on my 1920px monitor.

    He says his font & zoom settings are normal.

    I understand this: as the resolution lowers (at some point) each sidebar disappears.

    I’d like to be able to adjust those two numbers, & ensure the sidebars only vanish on the very smallest screens.

    What would I add to my child theme’s style.css to adjust this?

    Thank you very much! It’s a beautiful theme.

    Hi! Could you please post your website’s URL? I need to take a look. The main sidebar shouldn’t disappear until your screen resolution is below 1140px.

    The sidebar appears on my end… What browser are you using? Also, you made some modifications and you might have left some html tags unclosed.

    A printscreen would be nice too.

    Yes, me too.

    My friend (on one of the several laptops he tested the site with) took this screenshot:

    http://i.imgur.com/PduRW0w.jpg (the image is 1399px resolution after being cropped, the screen is like 1440px)

    While (in contrast) the sidebars shows up on my desktop: http://i.imgur.com/7n05zxX.png

    My friend tried multiple browsers too. (Internet explorer & something else.)

    My theory: these laptops are somehow reporting a resolution that’s lower than they should.

    Whatever it is, if I could control the numbers (that make the sidebar disappear) I could make this look right.

    > Also, you made some modifications

    I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I didn’t modify any of the theme’s files. Just recently I created a (currently blank) style.css child theme.

    But the same problem appears if I don’t active the child theme.

    That looks like a zoomed page. The problem is if you change the code for other resolutions it will break the layout for other users. Tell him to press CTRL – to zoom out and see if it works.

    For Mini Sidebar you can check out this topic: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/3-columns-how

    Thank you for the suggestion, but please consider this:

    Even if these laptops are zoomed in, that’s still a problem: it’s probably very common for laptops to be zoomed in to help people read on tiny screens.

    (So the page still won’t look right to many readers.)

    Thus I still wish there was an option to control when the sidebars start to disappear, I’d like to set it (eg) 800px or less.

    I’d really appreciate if you’d add this option.

    Thank you very much.
