I've been trying to added a few sidebars

I've been trying to added a few sidebars on my forums main page, but I can't seem to get it right? I added an image of what I want it to look like. I think a lot of people would like to have this as well...




Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try this, but it's for boxes on the left side ....

In your html file ...

<search for>
Code
Select All
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
	<tr>
		<td class="nav" height="30" width="2%" align="left">&nbsp;</td>
		<td class="nav" height="30" align="left">{yabb boardlink} {yabb navigation}</td>
	</tr>
</table> 


</search for>

and .....

<add after>
Code
Select All
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
 <tr>
  <td valign="top" width="160">

<!-- Start left menue column-->
<table class="windowbg" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0"  border="0" style="margin-right:10px">
<!-- Start Box One -->
<tr>
  <td class="menutop" width="160" height="24" align="left" valign="middle">&nbsp; Box Title</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td class="windowbg" width="160" height="50" border="0" />Your content here .....</td>
</tr>
<!-- End Box One -->

<!-- Start Box Two -->
<tr>
    <td class="menutop" width="160" height="24" align="left" valign="middle">&nbsp; Box Title</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td class="windowbg" height="50" align="center">Your content here</td>
</tr>
<!-- End Box Two -->

<!-- End left menu column -->

	</td>
</table>

    <td valign="top" width="85%"> 


</add after>

It is a piece of code from one of my templates. You must play a little bit with the values for the size and the colors so that it adapts to your template.

Before you add these code, make a backup from your original file.

I've added it to my boardindex file (and it's looking AWESOME) but I can't figure out if there is a way to expand the forum statistics section at the bottom back to 96% or what ever it is?

Take a look www.omgot.com

Thank you so much

That is for me too. I have not tried the area of the Info Center to set back on the entire width.
