    the theme i am using is http://newwpthemes.com/demo/TechMore/ Techmore, a free wordpress theme. Could anyone just download the theme and look thru the php and css and teach me how to change the column and sidebar widths of this theme? ive spent hours and days on this and i cannot find the answer. Help is greatly appreciated.

    probably won't happen ;-)

    if you post a link to your site, someone might be able to make some suggestions on how to change the widths.

    it will be useful if you can indiacate what widths you are trying to achieve.

    this is not really a wordpress problem, so you might want to start learning css: http://www.w3schools.com/css/

    haha sorry about that. i do know some css and php because I've edited quite a bit on my site ( http://www.huloji.com ) and the theme I am using says it has a "fixed width" and I am looking for a way to bypass that. I looked through the entire css coding and I have tried to change basically every number value associated with widths and margins... but I still can't find out what I am doing wrong. Any ideas?

    impossibe to say, without knowing what you want to achieve.

    generally, imho, changing from 'fixed width' to 'fluid' is usually quite impossible to achieve;

    In your theme folders, there'll be a folder probably called CSS. In that folder, look for the file 'screen.css'.

    The main column is .span-16 {
    width: 630px;

    The sidebar is .span-8 {
    width: 310px;

    Bear in mind both of these lie within the container div, which is

    .container {
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 950px;

    And within that, there's a div...

    .span-24, div.span-24 {
    margin: 0;
    width: 950px

    So if you edit one, you'll probably have to edit them all. But careful, because I suspect these will apply to stuff that you might not want to edit... not sure without going through it all....

    Hope that helps?
