  • Resolved ppevoto


    I’m sure it is a quick fix, but can you help me figure out why the fixed navigation bar is not centered on the webpage?

    Also, when you scroll all the way to the bottom, the first sidebar is only maybe 100px wide…how do I make this container wider and put a background color behind it so that you can actually read the text?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hmm, it’s hard to say what’s causing the problem with the nav bar and the sidebar width. It’s not that way on the demo site:

    I would deactivate any plugins to ensure one of them is not causing the problem. Then revert any CSS changes one by one until the nav bar and widget look right again… that should help find the style change that broke it.

    You can set the background-color property on the .widget-area div, like so:

    .widget-area {
        background-color: #fff; /* Or whatever color you want the background to be */

    We can’t really help with CSS in this forum, but there are some resources here. I always recommend working in a child theme or with a CSS plugin (like Jetpack) to do this. You can also use a browser plugin like Firebug for CSS work–makes it much easier to pinpoint the areas you want to change.

    I hope this helps — good luck!

    Thank you, I deleted and re-installed and I’m fine now! Also, the code for the background worked as well. Thanks again
