[resolved] How to remove a column from a custom theme? (2 posts)

    Hey there,

    I'm using the Grid Focus Theme for my site and I have a problem:

    I'd like to remove my left sidebar and expand my posts over the space that was occupied by it. I have absolutely no knowledge of CSS, so I don't know what lines to edit in order for this to work.

    Please HELP!

    The theme's style.css is:

    /*
    Theme Name: Grid Focus
    Theme URI: http://5thirtyone.com/
    Description: Grid aligned WordPress theme
    Version: 1.1
    Author: Derek Punsalan
    Author URI: http://5thirtyone.com/
    Tags: white, grid, whitespace, minimal, clean, widgets
    
    Grid Focus was designed and coded by Derek Punsalan. Find
    more info about the guy at http://5hthirtyone.com
    
    Notes: Inspired and created for minimalist, content focused blogs
    or websites. Customize, edit, poke, prod, and adapt to your own
    style. Please leave credit where credit is due so that others may
    find the source for your site and adapt a suitable version for their
    own website.
    
    See line 53 for a collection of the main font rules - size, line-height,
    and color - combined for your convenience.
