My first post. First, I'm not a developer, but I'm a career creative professional ...I'm savvy, but not knowledgeable.
I'm re-designing (trying, that is) a website using wordpress 3.0.3. I downloaded a theme called "Shaken Grid" and I'm trying to change the width of the posts pages. In other words, I'm trying to increase the width in which I can post content. There's a widget sidebar on the right side I'd like to move over to the farthest right possible. I've spent the last 12 hours reading bloggers describing the "easy steps" to customize pages and widths. So far, however, there's not one single line of code in my theme css file that even remotely resembles anything any of these posts describe.
Before I lose my mind, entirely, what in the hell could be going on that the code in my CSS is so completely foreign to anything I've found in 12 hours solid hours of searching developer posts?
I just want to change the width/move the sidebar farther right, and I'm totally lost.
