    Hi Christopher,

    I think that this one will be easy. The space between the articles and sidebar seems a little wide and I’d like to increase the width of the article container.

    I “assume” (I know :)) that the width is set in the css, but I haven’t been able to find it.

    I’m more familiar with CSS than PHP, so I’m not totally helpless.

    Thanks as always.
    Katrina

    Do you have section in the dashboard named, “Custom CSS”, “Custom Styles”, or “Jetpack”, or are you using a Child Theme?

    Hi Andrew,

    I’ve created a child theme using Christopher’s Blocomo theme as the start. The parent theme is Twenty Twelve.

    My styles.css is from Blocomo and I haven’t modified it yet. The only thing that I’ve really modified so far is content.php.

    My Dashboard doesn’t have Custom Styles, Custom CSS or Jetpack.

    I usually use Notepad or Dreamweaver to edit code.

    Cheers,
    Kaatrina

    The space between the articles and sidebar seems a little wide

    In your Child Theme style.css file, add this;

    .widget-area .widget {
     margin-bottom: 1.4rem;
    }

    Mess about with the 1.4 value to get what you want.

    I’d like to increase the width of the article container

    Add;

    .site-content {
     width: 70%;
    }

    Mess about with the 70 value to get what you want.

    Thanks very much Andrew,

    Did exactly what I needed. I had tried changing the margins in .site-content article which did not work.

    So thanks again!

    Katrina
