    Hi, all.

    I cannot figure out how to widen the center area on my site where my posts and side bar is. It is way too narrow.

    The site is http://www.holyghostrevelation.com

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Dave

    You would first have to increase the width of the site wrapper (#page) and then increase the width for .narrowcolumn by the same amount.

    Where can I find those?

    In your theme's stylesheet.

    Thanks for the info. I looked at my stylesheet and the code I found was:

    #page{
    float: left;
    width: 839px;
    margin: 0 0px; 5px 0;
    color: #000;}

    I played with the width for that and narrowcolum, but it did not work. Any other suggestions?

    starting at the top of style.css:

    #container
    #page
    #header
    .columns-wrapper
    .narrowcolumn
    #footer
    ul#Nav

    in each of these styles increase the width by the amount of px by which you want to widen your content column.

    (there might be background images, which may need to be edited with some graphic's program - not checked)
