Hi guys,

I was wondering if i can edit a template i am using so it has a sidebar?  something similar to the sidebar here on another site i look after  www.bodyfirst.ie i have tried copying that template but it throws off everything else here is the code for the template i am using that i would like to put a sidebar on

// Template Name: Full Width Page
get_header(); ?>
		<?php if (function_exists('progression_breadcrumbs')) progression_breadcrumbs(); ?>
		<div class="content-container">
			<div class="page-content">
				if($post->post_parent) {
					$children = wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&child_of=' . $post->post_parent . '&depth=1&echo=0');
				else {
					$children = wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&child_of=' . $post->ID . '&depth=1&echo=0');

				if ($children) { ?>
				<ul class="sub-pagination">
					<?php if($post->post_parent): ?>
					<li><a href='<?php echo get_permalink($post->post_parent); ?>'><?php echo get_the_title($post->post_parent); ?></a></li>
					<?php else: ?>
					<li class="current_page_item"><a href='<?php echo get_permalink($post->ID); ?>'><?php echo get_the_title($post->ID); ?></a></li>
					<?php endif; ?>

					<?php echo $children; ?>
				<?php } else { ?>

				<?php } ?>

					<h1 class="page-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
					<?php the_content(); ?>
					<div class="clearfix"></div>
