My problem is that there is a large amount of unwanted gray space between the post area and the sidebar/ads. I widened the post area, and that ended up pushing the right sidebar out instead of filling the gray space without touching the sidebars.
So, I figured out that the gray space is attached to the post, and adjusts along with it accordingly. How do I get rid of it?
I tried pushing the top left ad individually (not the sidebar) to the right and it ended up getting “cropped” by this gray space.
