Support » Fixing WordPress » how do you change the width of my sidebar?
7 years ago
could someone assist me in changing the width of my sidebar?
that would need a good basic understanding of css on your side;
and additional information such as
the name of your theme
and a link to your site.
some themes are easier to change than others.
info also needed:
new width of the sidebar?
change or keep the width of the main area?
Unless you provide a link to your site, no one will be able to help.
my site is http://www.red94.net
the theme is vigilance.
i need to be able to fit an ad that is 300×250 in size.
make backup copies before editing any theme files
it might be enough to change the width of #wrapper and #sidebar in your theme options (if there is a option to change css settings) or in style.css of your theme:
if 300px is too norrow for whatever you need to get into the sidebar, increase it slighly, maybe to 310px;
the !important is to force the width onto the style, as i could not find the style that ultimately defined the widths.
and the banner image http://www.red94.net/wp-content/themes/vigilance_pro/images/banner_v3.jpg needs to be widened from 980px to 1030px.
i should have clarified: rather having everything increase altogether, i would like to have the sidebar wider while the main body is forced to reduce in that corresponding amount of size.
thank you. i will try this. i greatly appreciate the help.
