    I just uploaded a new theme to my blog. How do I adjust the width of the entire blog. I would like some space on the side. Please visit my site. There is no content yet. I am in the baby phase and I don't know how to adjust the width.

    From viewing source, I believe that if you adjust the width of the main div (#main in the stylesheet) you can get a margin on either side.

    Edited to add - though I think you should leave the width as is, it expands/contracts nicely in a variety of widths. Very nice header - i like it a lot!

    I don't understand what you mean by "use width in css should be OK!" I am very new to wordpress. Please break it down for me.

    You should learn some CSS
    Your theme is a wide theme,If you don't know how to edit the CSS,You'd better check a new theme like Theme Viewer

    In your theme folder, put this at the top of style.css

    body {
    padding: 0px 20px;
    }

    That will give you a space of 20 pixels on either side. But again, I don't think you shoudl do it - the theme is nice full screen...
