[resolved] Make sidebar wider in Blaskan theme? (11 posts)

    Does anyone know how to make the sidebar wider in Blaskan? I saw some information online about other themes, but not this one. I'd like it to be 300 px wide, and possibly without altering the size of the content. Thanks a lot :)

    Try adding these lines to the end of style.css:

    .sidebars #wrapper, .content-wide #wrapper {
        width: 1170px;
    }
    .sidebars #primary, .sidebars #secondary,
     .content-wide-sidebar #primary {
        width: 300px;
    }

    vtxyzzy thanks a lot for the reply. I placed it at the very end, after everything. Unfortunately, there was no change :( I do appreciate your help however!

    That is strange. When I tested it, it worked fine. Did you clear your browser cache, and any WP cache you are using?

    Can you post a link to your site so I can see the css?

    Please don't post more than 10 or so lines of code here - per forum rules.

    Try adding these lines to framework.css:

    .sidebar #wrapper, .content-wide #wrapper {
        width: 1170px;
    }
    .sidebar #primary, .sidebars #secondary,
     .content-wide-sidebar #primary {
        width: 300px;
    }

    Im sorry about the lines of code.
    That did the trick! The site wound up extremely wide, but I simply just changed the width from 1170px to 900px and it looks exactly how I was hoping!! I really appreciate your help on this matter. This forum has been really great and I thank you for all your efforts!

    Hi all.

    I followed the above advice from @vtxyzzy and it made my site extremely wide, too. Like @afro9891, I changed 1700px to 900px but it made my sidebar disappear.

    How can I make my green background a bit wider on each side and shrink the width of my content in the white space without losing the sidebar?

    Thanks!
