    Hi!

    I'm wondering if it's possible to Not get the CSS attributes of your website to affect the content in the full width page, but instead use the attributes from the contents origin ..?

    I'm sorry for the complicated question, might also be really easy just that my question is oddly formed. Sorry in either case :)

    Awaiting your professional answers! :)

    Best Regards,
    Kendis

    What do you mean "contents origin"? From where? An example on a live page will be easier to discuss.

    Well sorry for being complicated :P Well the contents origin refer to the MyBB forum I'm trying to integrate on my WordPress site.

    You would need to look at the CSS that is affecting the appearance of the specific page -- and make any modifications so that the width of the forum would work. You can't automatically change the way CSS works - it's a question of basic CSS rules -- specificity and cascade. You can, however, make a CSS change only happen on one page -- by using that page's specific id in the CSS selector.

    I think I know what you're asking. Then again, maybe I don't... You can call out elements by their container. For example #header p { } will only style <P>s that are in the #Header div. Thus, if you want to style images or paragraphs just within a certain element, that's how you would do it.

    Secondly, if you're trying to change a style that's already there, you're going to have to force your style upon it (by using the !important; tag) or just edit the stylesheet within the plugin. If you're using a MyBB forum plugin, you're going to want to find the stylesheet in the editor and change things from there, but remember that those changes will go away once the plugin is updated.
