If you have questions about my software, chances are this forum has the answers.

You'll need to register before you can post on the forum to ask your question or to answer another one. A reply will be posted to each and every question that is asked so there is no need to double post or bump your post. I do my best to answer promptly but in some cases it may take a day or two. If you bump your post, it may be removed. Bear with me and I`ll get your question answered quickly.

Here are a few tips to help you to get your questions answered more rapidly.

IMPORTANT: Posts in English only. I don't have a translator and I'll be unable to understand your message properly and will probably delete it.
SEARCH: Use the search option to see if your question has been answered on the forum before now or if there is an answer in the documentation of your software.
PRIORITY SUPPORT: If you have purchased a commercial version of any software, using the contact option at the licence centre ensures a faster response.
AUTO DELETION: Accounts older than 5 days, with no posts or topics, are automatically deleted. Only register if you are thinking of posting.
LINKS: Any links posted are not clickable and must be copied / pasted into your browser address bar.

What I am wanting to do in the sidebar in the Admin CP where I have the rough black squiggle is add a new box which would act as a message area for admins.

Like I want to remind my staff of something upcoming or something they have to do I can post a message and it will show in that area above the login name and email. I hope you understand what I am trying to say (it is nearly 2am and my brain is fuzzy after nearly 9 hours designing).

Why don`t you use the mailbox feature?

If you prefer to add a box, then open the 'admin/templates/system/home/panel.php' file. Find the first div:

<div class="form-group">...</div>

After add:

<div class="panel panel-default">
          <div class="panel-body">

Thanks of that David.

Can I also ask if I wanted to add a sidebar to the main page what file would I edit to make a right sidebar. To make it similar to that on your website.

That requires a bit more code and a good understanding of bootstrap. Not to mention the current layout and code. Not something I have time to go through I`m afraid.
