    Hi my layout is way too wide. I rather have it scaled down. I am using a theme that i bought. But I am not sure where to go and what to add to scale down the layout. Here is the link to the site http://www.journeyofablackearedkite.com/

    When it comes to support on paid themes, the best thing is to post in the discussion thread for your theme (in this case Themeforrest).

    to scale down the width of a theme, you adjust it in style.css

    but it's not always that simple....you may need to scale down the body to the desired width, then everything in it possibly, header, sidebar, content area, etc, so that everything fits within the new width

    What RVoodoo said. Some themes explicitly set widths for everything (body, header, content, sidebar,etc) in pixels.

    Some themes might set a width for body for example and then use % or em to size everything else based on the size of the body. This is much easier to scale as you just have to make adjustments to the main item such as body and then everything else uses a relative size.

    Hopefully the theme author(s) can point you in a more specific direction.

    @Full Circle - I would try to contact the theme author(s) first. They can provide you with far more insight than we can. If it is a paid theme I would think the author would have no problem with helping you out.

    I would try contacting Adrian Diaconescu at his website:
    http://rubiqube.com/free-wordpress-theme-empty-canvas/

    He seems more than receptive to answer questions on his themes
