    You can...but it means using the child theme to make core theme file changes. To begin with, you would copy over the index.php into the child theme and look for the class span8 and change this to span9.

    Next do the same for the sidebar-blog-left.php and look for this class span4 and change it to span3. Repeat this for the the sidebar-page-left.php as well if you want the pages to have this modification and not just the blog pages.

    There are other files with these classes, but if the ones mentioned here are the main ones for the default blog layout (left sidebar) and the page one.

    The child theme for this theme is found in the theme folder "child-theme" that you can install. Please note when you activate this that you will need to redo your theme options and reassign your widgets.

    Hello, Thanks for your reply. this is my first time working on a blog and themes, and unfortunately i'm not a coder and not sure how to do this. But i would ask some of my coder friends to this for me. However are there any easy tutorials that might help me do it myself as it might help in long run:)

    I'm actually looking for a view similar to the demo of this theme,
    http://demo.styledthemes.com/luminescence-lite/

    Would your suggestions above give me the demo theme layout.

    Thanks once again
    Cheers

    Hopefully some of your coder friends can help you with the changes you need to do. Unfortunately I don't have any tutorials on custom changes such as that.

    Regarding the demo site view and layout, that one is quite easy actually because I did it simply by installing the theme and the blog is by default, on the front page of the site by WordPress. Then your widgets in the left sidebar are what you put there yourself, as well the ones in the bottom footer area. Just make sure you create a custom menu (Appearance >> Menus ) because this will give you more flexibility of what you put on your menu.

    I do have tutorials for setting up the theme in case you missed it:
