[resolved] changing ?mystique=css settings (3 posts)

    This theme is awesome!!!

    I'm trying to over-ride some of the settings that come up on the very cool Mystique settings page. For example, my site is fixed-width 800px. I want the column widths to be 160px, 430px, 210px. I can set the first two on the "settings" page, but the third column is trying to stretch the page out to 960px (actually 940px -- the rightmost column is automatically getting a width of 350px).

    I've tried forcing the "sidebar" class to be only 210px using the "User CSS" option, but that doesn't seem to work.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Holy cow, I figured it out. For anybody else who may be stuck in the same place, you need to get hold of the dynamically generated mystique css file, which is:

    http://<domain>/?mystique=css

    I don't think you can get hold of this css file directly, you'll need to open it up in a browser. (You can do this in FF or Safari.)

    Find the style for the column you need to change. In my case, it was

    body.fixed.col-3 #sidebar{width:350px;}

    Go to the "User CSS" option in Mystique settings (at the top of the page) and just change the width as needed.

    Viola!

    the proper way to do this is to set a fluid (custom) page width from the design panel, and add in the user css field:
    .page-content{max-width:800px;}

    then go the design panel again and and change the column widths as you wish. the only problem is that you'll have to work with percentages, and might be difficult to find out which value matches 160px, 430px etc...
