[resolved] Right Column Width Size (5 posts)

    I am new to this and am setting up http://www.aimlow.com
    I am using the Kirby Theme. I set up the Widget area on the right side of the page. I put AdSense Code in the Text Widget. The widget width is not wide enough to display the full ad so half gets cut off...

    Am i doing this in the best way?

    Is there a way I can make the right column wider to fit the whole ad?
    I am not a coder and have poked around trying my best to figure this out.
    TIA,
    Rob

    make a backup copy of your theme files before editing

    try, and edit 2c-r.css:

    #container {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0 -300px 0 0; /*was 240px */
    	width: 100%;
    }
    #content {
    	margin: 0 320px 0 20px;
    }
    #primary,
    #secondary {
    	float: right;
    	position: relative;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	width: 300px; /*was 220px */
    }

    Thanks... that almost worked... it made the column wider, but it also sent it to lower on the page beneath the posts. I'll leave it up for a while if you have a chance to look at it

    well done,

    just saw (in IE7) that longer post titles can intrude into the sidebar, now that the gap is narrower:

    edit style.css and add a max-width:

    .entry-title {
    	color: #000; max-width:600px;
    	font-size: 21px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }
