Moving sidebar blocks to left-hand side

Hello! I’m wondering if anyone has found a way to move custom blocks to the left hand side-bar on the latest update? I can only seem to ‘select’ or ‘unselect’ items, with no option to choose which side of the page they will be on. Thanks in advance!

Hi @annagrimaldi1,

There is not an option to move blocks to the left sidebar in OJS 3 because there is no left sidebar in any of the standard themes for OJS 3. OJS 3 themes are mobile responsive and so have a more simple 2 column design. If you would like to implement a left sidebar on your site you can create a custom child theme and upload it under Website Settings > Appearance.
