Vantage
[resolved] Vantage: widen right widget area (4 posts)

    I'm hoping to widen the right widget area on my Vantage site to 300px (I think it's currently 215px or so). Do I need to edit the CSS to do this? If yes, what is the CSS setting I should edit?

    My purpose is I'd like to use Google's "medium rectangle" (300x250) ad area instead of the "Wide skyscraper" (160x600). I am using the Google Publisher plugin (works great so far).

    If you are talking about the website in your icon which is using Vantage, then yes, you will.

    This is what is currently telling your theme how wide to make your right sidebar widget area:

    #secondary {
    	width: 23.762%;
    
    	float: right;
    }

    and being that percentages are being used, this is what controls the width of your content block on the left:

    #primary {
    	width: 71.287%;
    
    	float: left;
    }

    If you change the #secondary then you will need to change the #primary to match.

    Yep, I'm talking about http://aspwedge.com.

    Thanks...I'll play around with those percentages.

    Hopefully that works out for you.
