The theme file for a Single Post is usually called “single.php”, however the width would probably be defined in the CSS (usually style.css) for the page since CSS controls the presentation of the page.
So you would be looking for the CSS class/ID which controls the single post width and then find it in the CSS and edit the width.
What I was really asking was where in the style sheet…I’ve pored through the style sheet line by line and I can’t find it…so I need to know what the class id is likely to be or what the usual language is that defines a single post. Just knowing that it should be there hasn’t helped me because I’m so ignorant of what the code should be. It seems to me I’ve changed every possible thing related to “width” in the style sheet, but apparently not.
There’s nothing at all referring to “width” in single.php.
Hi…does anyone have time to look at this to see if you can tell what the class id is for single post width? I can’t find it in the style sheet or in the single post.php…or anywhere else. My sidebar is getting bumped in single posts, and I’m wondering if I somehow changed the width of the posting area so that it’s bumping the sidebar.
Here’s a single post: http://tribeofadmins.com/eggcorns-and-malaprops

Thanks! That did it. I found it in the middle of the single.php page. It’s probably obvious from the above that I was looking at sidebar.php instead of single.php…I need a little red-faced emoticon here.
Appreciate the help. I’m off to go read up on DIV
