Expanding the Borders of the "Chaotic Soul" Theme (2 posts)

    Hey Guys,

    I'm pretty much a newbie with wordpress. I'm pretty technically proficient (network administrator) but not so great when it comes to code.

    I'd like to be able to expand the "border" in my "Chaotic Soul" themed blog to encapture (and center) larger photographs.

    Here's an example: http://tracesoftexas.com/myblog/?p=41

    As you can see, the photo of the painting extends beyond the white borders.

    Of course, I could simply shrink the photographs but, as my blog is also a venue for my own photos, I'd prefer not to.

    Many thanks in advance for your kindly responses.

    Try editing style.css and changing:

    #homecontainer {
    background-color:#121212;
    border:thin solid #999999;
    height:100%;
    margin:auto;
    width:800px;
    }
    #content {
    float:left;
    font-size:0.8em;
    width:68%;
    }

    to:

    #homecontainer {
    background-color:#121212;
    border:thin solid #999999;
    height:100%;
    margin:auto;
    width:1200px;
    }
    #homecontainer img {
    display:block;
    margin:0 auto;
    }
    #content {
    float:left;
    font-size:0.8em;
    min-width:830px;
    width:68%;
    }
