How to expand width of text in blog post? (7 posts)

    I have several pages I have created for my website, I would like to expand or even out the text, as they are currently crunched (i.e 406px) the float is to the left as well.

    However, I cannot for the life of me find where to edit this in the CSS stylesheet, where do I make this change?

    Do I have to go to the root folder and make a change somewhere else?

    Thanks,

    Wade

    Hi Wade...

    What's the URL for your site?

    Can you give us an example of a page you are seeing the behavior you want to change?

    The page is http://www.salvorfunds.com/about

    I am attempting to expand it out to something like 500px or 550px, from where it currently is at 406px.

    I used inspect element on Google Chrome to get a better understanding of the page.

    Here is the exact:

    /* Blog Page-------------------------------------------------------*/
    .blog-post{ width:406px; margin:0; padding:0; float:left; }

    However, I cannot find this in the CSS sheet anywhere with editor in WordPress.

    Hey good...you are using the right tools to interrogate the page and figure out where you're at.

    The css setting you are looking for is NOT in style.css it is in main.css.

    Go here:

    http://www.salvorfunds.com/wp-content/themes/skt-full-width/css/main.css

    Make sense?

    Thank you. Fixed.

    This may not be topical and may require a new post, but within this template or in general, what is the best manner or way to have the text "Justified"?

    I am looking to have the text run even and parallel on both ends.

    Thanks.
