    I am running the theme Arras 1.5.1.2 I am having one issue:

    The spacing between the widgets (Primary and secondary sidebars) and content area. Its like the content is squeezed between in-between the sidebars.

    Is there a way I can make the content area wider? What code do i need to mess with in the "Editor" section.

    Here is my site:

    Well, you can reduce the left and right margins in this rule:

    #content {
      margin: 0 220px 0 230px;
      overflow: hidden;
    }

    Of course, you then have to alter the position of the other items on the page. For example, you can move the "secondary" area to the right by reducing the negative margin in this rule:

    #secondary {
      float: left;
      margin: 0 0 0 -220px;
      width: 300px;
    }

    For example, this worked for me:

    #content {
      margin: 0 60px 0 230px
    }
    
    #secondary {
      margin: 0 0 0 -60px;
    }

    HTH

    I'm trying to increase the size of the entire area (width) of Arras. I have tried everything I can find on the internet and nothing is working. I made changes in CSS\layout\3c-fixed css. That didn't work. I've made changes in User.css, that didn't work. I don't know why nothing is working. I know it can be done because I've seen other website examples that are wider. My site is: http://www.novabuyshomes.com I would appreciate any suggestions. If I just knew how to do it, I could tweak it to the size I want. Thanks in advance.
