    Hey all,

    I am new to WordPress, so please bear with me. I have encountered some problems when attempting to edit the 2011 template. I successfully changed the width percentage to 120% for both the menu and the image. However, when I attempt to remove the padding below the menu or the content width to 120% CSS resets the image and the menu to 100%. Am I approaching this the wrong way? I feel like there is some code that automatically adjusts the rest of the page when I edit another part of it.

    Also, when editing something in the past (I think when I removed the "leave a reply" section on a .php document), I lost the background for the content portion of the page. I would like to restore the background, so I can have contrast with the main background in the future.

    Here is my website: http://www.stjosephbyzantinecatholic.com

    Thank you!
    Kyle

    You really, really, need to be using a child theme for any theme modifications -- as is, all your changes are going to be erased when WP is updated. It's also very important that you have a clean copy of the default theme for troubleshooting purposes.

    Why are you using more than 100%? There should be better ways to do what you want that don't create other problems.

    You also have some code errors that may be causing problems, so you should probably start by clearing those up:

    Some may not be true errors or problematic -- but due to browser differences or validation standards changing. But if you are having problems, looking at any errors is always a good starting point.
