    Hi

    I am brand new at creating website (as of yesterday) so I have no experience but I understand a little tiny bit.

    I wanted to make the width of the center section and the slider wider, while at the same time decreasing the width of the sidebar.

    What is the best way to do this?

    thanks for your help, it is much appreciated!

    My travel blog is just being created and I only have two posts up so far. http://www.exposedtraveler.com
    any tips are always welcome too! im a newb.... :(

    Do not edit the Leaf theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    You can use the Custom CSS option that's part of the theme. Add your changes there. But changing layout on a responsive site is not always easy/simple unless you have a fairly good understanding of CSS...

    You should not edit the stylesheet in Leaf, no.
