Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » how to change sidebar width?
8 years ago
I’m using the default theme, and I would like to narrow the sidebar a little. Think I can work out how to do it? Nope 😉
I think it might be to do with this section from the CSS:
padding: 0 0 20px 45px;
margin: 0px 0 0;
padding: 10px 0 20px 0;
margin: 5px 0 0 150px;
but changing the numbers seem to make no difference. And why do they have the same width value above???
You’ll need to look for the #sidebar section. It will look something like this
padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
Adjust the width there and also in the sections you’ve already found.
That’s great – it worked. Thanks!
How do I get the text in the main column to now go all the way over to fill the now wider column? The text must be set to not go over a certain line length but I cannot locate it. 🙁
If you are using Firefox there is an add-on called Firebug that will show you how a page is constructed. You can use it on your own page to see what sections are affected by which part of the CSS.
