Support » Fixing WordPress » Colum Width Change

  • My theme isn’t an actual wordpress theme. It was designed by someone. I would like to know if anyone would know how I can change my side container width my site is My theme’s settign for the sidebar container is:

    .socialsidebar td, .socialsidebar th {padding:0;}
    .sidebar, #header, #header a {}
    .sidebar {}
    .sidebar h2 {background-color:#777;border:1px solid #999;font-weight:bold;font-size:10pt;letter-spacing:0;text-transform:uppercase;}
    .sidebar input {width:230px;}
    .sidebar img {max-width:230px;}
    .sidebar option, .sidebar select {width:220px;}
    .sidebar li {margin-bottom:1px;}
    .sidebar li ul li {margin-bottom:0;}

    Right now my right side is hanging off the side. I can fix it backwhere it was easily, but I don’t want it that way

    I can see this in the style sheet:

    #left, #right {
        border: 1px solid #777777;
        padding: 5px;
        width: 160px;

    so your right div is set to 160px. Just add a new style below:

    #right {width: px} — insert the width you want here.

    Hi Christine, I’m sorry; I don’t understand. I want to increase the size of my right containers that my content fits. I need it to be about 230px It was originally set at 150px

    Try adding this to the bottom of you stylesheet:

        width: 650px;
       width: 230px;

    Hope that helps

    OMGeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it worked Matt. That you both so very much. I hate this ask this but I am extremely anal about how neat my site looks. Is there a way to move the thin lines over to the right?
