    Hello. I can't seem to find or have a clue on how I fix this. I have a widget sidebar that I want the padding or margin space to be much tighter. I have a links below that shows you what I mean:

    This is what it looks like now

    This is what I want it to be like
    Any help would be great. And Im sort of clueless when it gets to editing stuff like this, so real lamens terms would be nice!

    Thanks

    Try adding this to the end of style.css:

    .Post { margin-right: 0; }
    1. Go to Admin->Appearance->Editor. This should open style.css in the text editor box.
    2. Scroll to the bottom and add the line above.
    3. Click 'Save Changes'.

    Thanks. That seemed to work. Now I want the widget info to also butt up against the left border area a lot tighter.

    Try adding this also to the end of style.css:

    .Sheet { width: 890px; }

    That seems to just push the whole site...doesn't narrow the gap.

    Possibly a difference in browsers. I tested it in Firefox and Chrome and it seems to work there.

    I have not tried to find a way to change it in IE.
