I'm new to wordpress and html but I've done a lot of scientific programming, so I can figure out the logic.
I've downloaded the Green Stimulus theme and I've hacked header.php file to remove all trace of the twitter piece which takes up half the page below the slider. Now I want to increase the width of the introductory text so its the full width of the slider image. I see a reference to the "introtextarea" in theme-options.php and I've fiddled with trying to change a few parameters but with no success.
I'm sure there is a trivial answer to this, so I thought I'd ask rather than waste more time fiddling!
