How to widen a sidebar? (2 posts)

    Hi! I am helping my boss with his wordpress website. He is unhappy about the narrowness of his sidebar, which is squeezing his facebook Like widget and making his stream (latest posts) part of the box be one word wide (www.jimmharrison.com) I can see that his tiny face pic is what is causing the streaming text to be almost centered in the box. I don't know how to get rid of that so I am wondering about changing the widget or changing the width of the sidebar? It is currently 180 but I need 300 for the widget to really display properly.

    Any ideas? I am also wondering where else I could put this widget on his website? Maybe the sidebar is too skinny and it just needs a new place. Where else could I put it?

    Thanks in advance for any info you all can provide.

    Unless the theme developer included a setting in theme options, you would need to edit the theme CSS to change the width of the sidebar.
