The Twenty Fourteen theme was used to create the basis of my own child theme. It's been pretty easy to override, but the left sidebar is proving difficult.
I don't want to remove the sidebar completely, but nothing I do in the CSS file allows me to get rid of the black bar. Even removing the sidebar from a template file leaves an empty black strip where the sidebar used to be.
Has anyone found a way to peacefully override this without throwing out the whole system?
