  • cookingbride


    I would like to make my sidebars wider so I can display a 300 x 250 ad. I figured out how to make the sidebar wider by adjusting this code in the style.css sheet:

    #sidebar-left, #sidebar-right {float: left; width: 300px;}

    But when I do that, my right sidebar moves to the bottom of the page. I’m sure there are some margins that need to be adjusted elsewhere, I’m just not sure where.

    Yes, you’d need to change the size of other elements on the page. Depending on the theme, that may not be simple. But as you are using a commercial theme, you’ll need to contact Elegant Themes for help – they provide support for their themes and commercial themes are not supported here.

    You could also try using Firebug to help you work with the layout of the page — changing widths and margins. But definitely use a custom CSS option or plug-in as you can really mess things up. Making changes in one element can also affect other templates…like I said, it’s not always simple :).



    please contact elegantthemes for support;

    this forum does not support commercial themes.

    or try working with a browser inspection tool to find what other styles you need to edit.
