    Hi guys, I'm currently using the theme chaoticsoul 1.2 and wish to make it wider. I'm almost there but there is one thing that's not working properly and that is a kind of frame around the menu on the right. Here is where I have got to so far:

    Here is what the css looked like before:

    	font-weight: bold;
    }

    I've managed to make everything 100px wider and reposition the blog on the page accordingly but as you can see I cannot seem to move the frame on the right 100px to the right. As for the banner- I'm going to resize that if I manage to move the frame around the menu into the correct position first. Does anyone have any ideas?

    No one got an idea? I'm sure its something I need to add to the css as I've tried changing all the relevant values and not had any success :(
