    Hi there. I love the content/width look of this blog http://www.sarahklassen.com/
    and I would love to get the same widths for my content and sidebar.

    I've created a child theme for twenty twelve, but I have no idea what to do now!
    Can anyone offer css tips?

    Thank you so much!

    Whatever percentage you take from the .site-content add to the .widget-area, this is altered 5% from default.

    .site-content {
    float: left;
    width: 56.104166667%;
    }
    .widget-area {
    float: right;
    width: 31.041666667%;
    }

    Thank you so much!

    Now I am having another issue. My blog looks completely different when I am logged in vs. when I am logged out.

    It looks like none of the CSS work I have done (which I can see when logged in and loading the page) shows up on other people's computers (doesn't matter which browser --i checked). In fact it looks completely unformatted, and has a bizarre blue menu bar that almost looks like it belongs to a mobile theme. The thing is I went through my plugins and deactivated all mobile plugins and it still looks like this.

    Help would be so appreciated!

    I'm not sure what it should look like but I see a very cleen simple layout.

    The only thing I noticed is that the whole page aligns to the left instead of the usual center. Is this by design? In the screen shot I centered it with some simple css edits.

    So I just looked at your page source (from the link above) and noticed your not using WordPress, it appears to be Blogger instead???

    Hi Batharoy,

    Actually no I am using WordPress hosted through Blue Host, not Blogger -- I managed to fix this initial problem by re-uploading my style.css file, but now I am having other problems:

    1. My title post (h1) font is not updating even though I coded it to be black
    2. My Google Adwords are not showing up, though I pasted the code in a text widget for my sidebar.
    3. My Comments box / all the stuff going on under my posts is a hot mess. My goal is to get it looking like this
    http://www.designlovefest.com/2014/02/weekend-highlights-2/#comments

    though I'd like to keep linkwithin visible on each page.

    woof...I'm beat trying to figure this all out.

    P.S. Thank so you so much for even responding! I can't tell you how stressful this is for me to navigate :)
