Changing Content width on Open Air Theme (4 posts)

    Hi,
    I'm trying to change the main content width on the "Open Air" theme.
    I tinkered with a few things and managed to get the title width to change by changing this:
    /*-------------------------- main divs -------*/
    .content {
    width:600px;
    float: left;

    and then I tried tinkering with this but it didn't seem to do anything:
    }
    .col_left .content, .col_center .content, .col_right .content {
    width: 500px;
    }

    Any help would be most appreciated; thanks!!

    Hi The Goshorn 9,

    The best way to determine what CSS controls certain parts of a page is to use the Firebug extension with either Firefox or Chrome. You can use it to inspect the different parts of your page and see what CSS rules are controlling those elements. From there you can edit your style sheet. Just make sure you're using a Child Theme so any future theme updates do not over write your changes.

    Hope this helps!
