Support » Themes and Templates » How to increase the central viewing area?

  • Sorry if this topic has already been covered but, honestly, I couldn’t find it (using the search facility).

    I’m using the default theme and, basically, I’d like the central viewing area (the one when the messages are displayed) to be wider.

    Now, I’ve tried editing the style.css, but I’m stumped as to which values I should increase.

    I tried to change #headerimg (default value 740px). This does increase the overall “box”, but the area where the messages are displayed does not change.

    Can anyone please give me detailled instructions, bearing in mind that I’d also like the display area for my pages to be similarly increased.

    Anticipated thanks

  • Heya,

    I -think- (I haven’t been able to check this) if you scroll further down in your style.css page, you’ll see this entry at some point:

    #page {
    	background-color: white;
    	margin: 20px auto;
    	padding: 0;
    	width: 760px;
    	border: 1px solid #959596;

    My guess is that this is the width you’re looking for.

    Let me know if it was good?

    Thanks for your reply.

    The point is that you change that width (which I did), everything overlaps on the sidebar.

    As I have now read in this forum, it’s hellishly difficult to customize WP’s default theme. I thus downloaded a more user-friendly theme (with a larger viewing central area) which I managed to customize without problems.
