Help with Mantra theme, content width (12 posts)

    I am attempting to customize the mantra theme. The original width of the page was 1100px, but the header limited me to 900px. It looked misaligned so I changed the css script to set the original page to 935px. However, the content text now runs into the sidebar section and I can't seem to find how to edit this in the script. http://www.thewhistlestopgrill.com/?page_id=6

    And the blog posting line such as here:

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    there are a few styles after the body tag (possibly in header.php?):

    <style type="text/css">
     #container {margin-right:-310px;}
    #content { width:800px;}
    #primary,#secondary {width:250px;}
    #content img {	max-width:760px;}
    #content .wp-caption{	max-width:770px;}
    #content p, #content ul, #content ol {
    font-size:15px;
    }
     #footer-widget-area .widget-title { color:#0C85CD !important ;} #footer-widget-area a { color:#666666 !important ;} #footer-widget-area a:hover { color:#888888 !important ;}  .entry-time {display:none;}
    </style>

    this line seems to be determining the width:

    #content { width:800px;}

    I didn't even check the php files, I was mostly sticking to the css file. Thanks. I will play with that and see what happens.

    Yes, I did switch themes. I found the Mantra to be very frustrating. Good luck!

    Hi Nicolectro, What are you trying to do with Mantra? I don't know much and am learning, but I have now managed to resize the header, from information that I found on one wordpress thread. Is this what you are trying to do, change the header size? If so, I can give you the information.

    I recently switched to the Mantra theme and really like it but my boss wants the header to be a slide show. Is this possible? I've downloaded a couple of different slideshow plug-ins but am not sure how to replace the header.

    Putting a slideshow plugin code on the header.php is the only way I know.
