Changing column width on Monochrome 1.5 theme -- How to? (3 posts)

    I am using the Monochrome 1.5 theme on my website, http://www.laoudji.com.

    I would like to adjust the column widths (in order of preference):
    - Make the middle column (with the text) wider.
    - Make the right-most column (with the search box) slightly narrower.
    - Make the left-most column (with post dates etc) slightly narrower.

    A couple of questions:
    - Should I be manipulating the code in Style.css or are there other files I should be looking at?
    - Anyone know which values I should be looking at / changing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you should manipulate the code in Style.css.
    Reduce the width of #right_col (and also reduce the width of elements like search bar etc which are in right column)
    Increase the width of #left_col (and adjust the width of inner elements accordingly)

    it may be utterly late but it is most important to note that you have to modify the gif files (header, side, footer) found in the theme's "img" folder in order to increase the width of the white column (which is actually the left column and goes with the #left_col tag).

    After editing (increasing or reducing) the width of those gifs, you should follow the steps in the above post. Hope this works, it sure did for my WP blog. Cheers.
