Changing theme column width (3 posts)

    I have a 3-column layout and would like to make the main column wider to accommodate photos that are 500 pixels wide (right now it's something like 445). I'm very much a novice at HTML, and I couldn't figure it out by looking at my stylesheet.

    The stylesheet is here: http://pastebin.com/a59NXi8M

    And my blog is: http://www.emilyinchile.com/

    I would also of course like to keep things centered, not just increase the size of the main column and have it all shift to the left. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi

    Looks like this could be very simple

    on line 341 of your theme's stylesheet style.css is this

    #wrap {
      margin: 0 auto;
      padding: 0;
      text-align: left;
      width: 850px;
    }

    Try changing the 850px to 960px. I think just that may do what you are after. You can use the WordPress theme editor if you have no other way to do it.

    Under Dashbaord menu, Appearances, pick Edit. Make sure you are editing style.css Find the section I mentioned (the inner lines may be in a different order - doesn't matter). Make the change, scroll down and Save or Update, however the button is labeled.

    You can always change it back to 850px if it creates a problem but it looks like that may be all you need to change.

    That didn't change anything - I found that section and changed it to 960px, then hit the "update" button with no change. Thanks for the suggestion though.
