[resolved] [zBench] Adjusting the content column and the sidebar size (7 posts)

    I'm using zBench and I needed to make the content wider and sidebar wider…

    With ZBench, editing the style.CSS— I have the CONTENT at 640px and I have the SIDEBAR set to 350px, problem is the layout is jacked up, and shifted/moved to the left.

    I need to get the layout centered again; can someone tell me what needs to be adjusted? Nothing I'm changing seems to make a difference.

    Thanks in advance...

    I'm much obliged…

    Thank you,

    the width of #wrapper is set to 1200px which might be wider than neccessary to accomodate the sidebar; try to reduce to 1020px;

    /* #wrapper */
    #wrapper{overflow:hidden;margin:0 auto;width:1020px;}

    alchymyth…
    Thanks for letting me know, but normally, if I adjust it to anything under 1200 my sidebar is taken and placed a the bottom of the pages and posts…

    But I'll try again; I appreciate your time…

    In zbench, choose APPEARANCE, choose EDIT.
    On the bottom-right choose STYLE.CSS. I change mine to Content 640px and 350px for the sidebar.

    look for WRAPPER

    /* #wrapper */
    #wrapper{overflow:hidden;margin:0 auto;width:1020px;}
    /* #content */
    #content{overflow:hidden;float:left;width:640px;padding:0;margin-right:20px;}
    /* #post */
    .post{position:relative;width:640px;margin:0 0 10px;padding:0;}
    /* #sidebar-border */
    #sidebar-border{position:relative;float:left;width:350px;background:#f2f2f2;border:1px solid #ccc;}

    I hope this helps...

    Later,
    Larry

    Your exact settings seemed to work fine… weird, but it must’ve been affecting something else; thanks, so much!

    I hope you have a nice day!
    Later,
    Larry
