Width of display (3 posts)

    Hi there, I've searched on Width and found nothing. I've been using WordPress on my own site for nearly a week, and I've stumbled around a few themes, My site at present is at http://www.portsmouthshotokan.com/wordpress and I'm using a theme called Mandigo.
    I'm a bit confused about the width of the display. I'm had a look around the themes on WordPress and the 2 column themes seem to all be the same, with a 3rd of the screen being used for borders. I've used tables before in Dreamweaver and normally set them to a % of the screen size so they automatically size to say 85% of the screen width.

    What I'd like to do is either edit this theme so that it scales to 85% of the width of the screen so I get more text per line that at current. or use a similar theme that does this, can anyone point me to how I can either achieve this with what I have at present if possible , or does anyone know of a nice two column theme with a sidebar that uses more horizontal space than mine at present. ?
    Thanks in advance

    You might want to look at some of the "fluid width" themes at the WP theme viewer.

    Yeah, I've been through and through those themes there and seen some tests. I wish there was a selection for customised header from the left bar though. Not many there that I like though compared to the theme I'm using at the moment. The square calender dates, etc, so I suppose I'll have to work out how to stretch the one I have installed then.....
