Margins cramping text (16 posts)

    After installing related content, there are wide margins on each side, making the text look cramped. Why and what should I do?

    Is Related Content a theme or plugin?

    It's a plugin.

    May you post a link to the problematic webpage?

    So, the margins are corrected when you deactivate that plugin?

    I haven't deactivated it. Was hoping I'd find an answer here first. But I'm going to deactivate it now, I think.

    I'm actually more concerned about the related content being totally unrelated.

    Deactivating the plugin is a technique to narrow-down underlying problems. If the problem persists whence plugins deactivate, the issue is greater than we once thought.

    I uninstalled the related content plugin and my margins are still too narrow. I'm afraid of messing with the css stuff because I don't want to mess things up. Any help or suggestions would be so appreciated!

    Are you using a plugin for custom CSS changes, e.g "Custom CSS Manager", or "Custom Styles"?

    I think it's custom css manager, but I'm not positive.

    I'm wrong, it's custom styles.

    Within your Custom Styles section of the dashboard, allocated by that plugin, enter this at the bottom;

    #wrap {
     width: 1200px;
    }

    Play around with the 1200 value to your desired width. Your website's margins will increase/decrease dependently on the narrowness/wideness of your width.

    Ok. Thanks. You've been great. Wish me luck. (In your mind, not here.)

    I tried entering that code in a few places but it made no change. What am I doing wrong? Ugh.

    It looks like that CSS is within the wrong section. If you're entering it within the section allocated by that plugin, that plugin is broken.

    If that plugin is broken, try another Custom CSS plugin that works
