    HI Craig, Sorry, but I don’t understand what you mean when you say:

    I have added other php files and I having no luck.

    There’s no need to add php files. If you want to change the layout, you’ll need to modify the css. Right now, I see this in your style.css:

    .post-entry {
    width: 620px;
    float: left;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
    padding-top: 10px;
    overflow: hidden;

    The width of this container will need to be changed from 620px if you wish to make it larger.

    Hi Christine,

    WOW! Thank you soooooooo much….I have been sitting here since 6pm EST looking up solutions and I read that I would need to create other another page.php…thank You so much 🙂


    Sorry for my typo of “I having no luck” LOL.

    I am also looking up how to change the size of the navigation…when I enlarge the font it creeps below the other parts..sorry to be a nag.

    In your css, you’ll see this:

    .nav a {
    	padding: 1em 1em 1em 1em;

    When you increase the font size, try decreasing the padding.

    The way this css is written is a bit silly. Since all four values are 1em, it could simply have been written at

    .nav a {
    	padding: 1em;

    If you try :

    .nav a {
    	padding: 1em 0.5em;

    That will give you 1em at the top and bottom and 0.5 on left and right. When using 4 values, you read them as top, right, bottom, left.

    thanks! much appreciated….this template is a rough one! took me another 7 hours (no joke) to figure out how to remove the bottom read more buttons…all the code is spread through several files…

    trying to remove the download now
    found this

    <div class=”one_third last”><?php if(of_get_option(‘welcome_button’) != NULL){ ?>
    “><?php echo of_get_option(‘welcome_button’); ?>
    <?php } else { ?> “> <?php echo “download now”?> <?php } ?></div>
    <hr />

    but when I remove takes away one of the upper borders..
    then my next task is to add a hover “block” over the nav bar…

    wow 90 percent of that is missing.

    Thanks again for your help Christine, I greatly appreciate it.
