Newbie question (3 posts)

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but here goes anyway:

    Here is my site: http://www.gimmeveggies.com

    I want to make the body bigger, to give me more writable space, but looking at the template code I have NO clue where to find the tags for that. I would also like to add more pages other than just "Home" and "About" but I'm not sure how to do that either.

    Can anyone help? Like I said in the title, I'm a newbie, and a pretty dumb one at that. :)

    Faith,

    In order to make your posts wider, you'll need to adjust some items in the stylesheet.

    Before you do anything, make a backup copy of the existing stylesheet, in case you want to undo your changes.

    It can be tricky to figure out which CSS class you want to modify. In your case I'd guess you want to modify both "entry" and "content." To see what these classes do, assign each class a different background color, such as

    #content
    {
    background: #00FF33;
    }

    which would make the content box bright green.

    Then you can decide which class's margins you need to adjust to get the width you want. Once you have the margins you want, remove those background colors.

    Writing new pages is easy. In your dashboard, choose "write" in the light blue menu bar, then choose the "write page" tab.

    I'm a total noob too so I'm not the best person to answer this but the Blix theme is one of the easier ones to figure out. Edit the layout.css file and look for this section:

    /* container

    Edit the width:XXXpx; to whatever you want.

    Hope this helps
