    ... of things like the sidebar, or main content area.

    I am using a ghettoly modified Kubric (default) with WP1.5, and want to make it wider... somehow.

    Thanks

    @gingerbeer2000,

    Visit http://codex.wordpress.org and on the front page you'll find a link to "creating horizontal menus" which should get you started.

    #sidebar
    {
    padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    margin-left: 545px;
    width: 190px;
    }

    Change the value of the width: property above. Also, you may have to alter the background image as the grey colour of the sidebar is part of a page-wide graphic. In your /themes/default/images folder you'll find the image called kubrick.jpg which is what you may wish to change in concert with the above CSS values.

    Thanks, I am looking at some of that stuff now.

    Also, I just double checked my registration and it seems to be working fine. :/
