Changing page width, Arts Emerging Theme (3 posts)

    Hello:

    I want to change the page width in the art emerging theme. The post area is too small, i'd like to bump it from 500 px to about 700 px.

    I'm guessing this is done in the stylesheet? I've found a couple of width values but wondered if there is anything other than the CSS that has to be changed.

    Thanks if you can assist.

    Not familiar with that theme, but based on my experience with other themes, I would say No. Change it and test it.

    The problem is, that changing one width might not be enough, because there can be a wrapper-div with a limiting width for all the content, or you may have to make a sidebar smaller, etc pp...

    In addition, a lot of people (and themes) use different div-IDs for the content-divs in different templates... for example <div id="narrow"> in index.php, and <div id="wide"> in page.php, and so on. I would recommend that you backup your css and then just try changing some widths. It might also be a good idea to read up on some basic css knowledge, for you to get an unterstanding of what you're doing.

    If you need help, you should provide a link to your blog, otherwise it's almost impossible to assist you in any way with specific issues.
