    Is there a way to 'make' it single-columnar?

    Hi nothingman,
    you can disable Widget Block2, in this case, you'll have one single column. If you intend to remove definitely the column, atm is it no possible. Need some changing in CSS.

    Thank you bbrian017, if you can slide down the last widget, you enable the second sidebar.
    For more reference read this:

    Hi Carlos,

    Don't worry about the late reply. I cannot even run this software on my server anyways so I'm out of luck. My php version is to old.

    Too bad I really liked your theme.

    Hi Carlo,

    Under the theme "Keep it Simple" in the footer
    Where do I find "Plugin for Top Users Gravatar"
    and how I use

    Hi kmai,
    Top gratavars was only a test for fitting space on footer, if you interest in it, I'll try to make alive...

    You might be able to adapt the User Rankings plugin for that spot.

    Mmmm good idea Nick,
    I completely forget User Rankings plugin... ok I'll try

    Ok kmai, done.
    I've added in footer the output of User Rankings plugin as Nick suggest. To test: download and install User Rankings plugin and see the result on your main page.

    I cleared all caches

    Have you tried with the default theme?

    I'll choose another theme!
    Thanks for the attention and support.

    With default theme all works fine?
    If yes please try to activate User Rankings plugin and then reactivate Keep it Simple theme.
    Only for testing purpose, because i can't reproduce this issue on my local installation. Thank you!

    Please kmai, try to activate debug mode:

    Admin Panel -> Settings -> Debug ON -> SAVE

    then retry to load home page of your site and see what error report.
    Are you in local or on a server (in this case can you provide a link?)

    Thank you
