    Hey guys!
    Is it possible to change the content width?
    I need more space, you can see the problem here: http://www.tia-org.at/pegasus/
    Text and picture are overlapping.

    Using the firefox developer tool i can see that .site has width 883px. I don't understand where that comes from.

    I'm not sure if it's the Theme, or the Plugin I use: Spreadpluging

    Thanks for your help! :)

    Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    Ok, i'll keep that in mind, thanks!

    But I still don't understand what exactly i should change...? Looking at the Themes style.css the width is 100%:

    .site {
    	background-color: #fff;
    	border-left: 1px solid #f2f2f2;
    	border-right: 1px solid #f2f2f2;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 1800px;
    	width: 100%;
    }

    My screen has about 1600px. Where are the other 800px? can't realy find where they go missing.

    Are you using a child theme or a custom CSS plugin?

    I found it! The problem was the plugin. I can change the article width there.

    And found at last where the content width can be changed:

    .entry-header,
    .entry-content,
    .entry-summary,
    .entry-meta {
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 604px;
    	width: 100%;
    }
