    Hello,

    I'm trying to get rid of the sidebars and increase the width of the content. I'm using Redbel theme and here's the address to my webpage...

    I was able to get rid of the sidebars but can't increase the width..I looked into css but it's complicated...Please help!

    assuming that you want to have full width on all pages and posts,

    try and change here (in style.css of the theme):

    #content {
    	margin-top:105px;
    	width:692px;
    	float:left;
    }

    either try and figure out what the fixed width would be of a full width page; or use width:100%; like so:

    #content {
    	margin-top:105px;
    	width:100%;
    	float:left;
    }

    see if that works for all your pages.

    ok, right now I set the width to 100% and while it increased the width of the text, the box (white box) didn't increase.

    You can check the demo right now...

    these are done by background images:

    .page-corps-title {
    	display:block;
    	background:url(images/article_sprite.png) no-repeat;
    	background-position:0 -17px;
    	height:10px;
    }
    .article-corps {
    	position:relative;
    	background:url(images/article_sprite.png) repeat-y;
    	background-position:-683px 0;
    	margin-left:30px;
    	padding:13px 43px 0 50px;
    	line-height:20px;
    }
    .article-footer {
    	display:block;
    	background:url(images/article_sprite.png);
    	height:17px;
    }

    edit these images (they are in the /images folder of the theme); or remove the lines with background: ....; or add a solid background color to the styles:
