Wordpress - move left column to righthand side

Hi – Following the excellent guide on fishpig integration I have tried to move the left column to the right on the blog page – problem is I do not have the template tab in magento>wordpress>settings ! I am using the argento theme in case that makes a difference.

Also a minor issue – when I click on Wordpress>wordpress it takes me to the same magento page with an error CURL (26): couldn’t open file “password” and I have just realised what the problem is!

The error message above returns the password but on checking my password begins with @ – the error message has the password without the @! I have now gone to wordpress and generated a new password which doesnt have the @ at the beginning and it works fine!

Hi Pete,

Did you get this sorted? Glad you got the password issue sorted, did you get the layout issue sorted, this should be a setting in wordpress under appearance –> layout –> sidebar or something similar.

Hi – The option to move the sidebar doesn’t appear in Magento, nor does it on the wordpress site. It is as if the theme doesn’t have all the templates installed. I have seen in some of the view.phtml files reference to the layouts, and there are excellent wordpress instructions but all I can do is put the main blog on the left and then the sidebar disappears – even if you use the method in the understandinge tutorial.

I’m having the same issue – just no option for the Template section in Magento:
