Hi, I'm just starting out with SiverStripe having previously only used WordPress.
I am trying to modify Blackcandy to get it to look like this: http://robcubbon.com/dev/my-local-mates/
My first question is how to insert the sidebars, as I have a left sidebar and a right sidebar which should remain the same throughout the whole of the site. I'm a bit confused as to why Blackcandy has style for a sidebar but it doesn't always show up.
Or, is there another existing theme with two sidebars already that would be a better start to modify?
I have found this article http://www.ssbits.com/create-a-static-sidebar but I'm a little reluctant to go ahead with this.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be grateful. I should be OK with the HTML and CSS of the page.
Looking forward generally to using SilverStripe in the future!
