Adjusting width of main div, Magazine Basic (2 posts)

    I am not too familiar with WordPress, but am an experienced Web Designer with many years of coding experience. I was hired by a client to alter their WordPress template.

    So, I'm working with the Magazine Basic template, and the client would like me to alter the width of the main div. I thought I could just go into the .css file and alter the dimensions, but apparently, the width is fixed. The template provides two options: either 800px wide or 1024px wide.

    I need to make this page 900px wide.

    Looks like there is a block of code dynamically generated in the header of the php file. If I can get to that, I may be able to hack around the parameters and customize the page width.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    i got same trouble.
    so, decision:
    1. get Opera browser.
    2. open Magazine Basic settings page, just where you choose between 800 and 1024.
    3. right-click -> Source. Opera shows you code.
    4. find 1024 and switch to 900.
    5. press Apply changings.
    Then save setting. works.
