Support » Fixing WordPress » padding adjustment for pages and posts (left and right sides)

  • Resolved chriswpthemes


    I have a question concerning the adjustment of the left and right padding for the content area of all of the pages and posts of my WordPress site. I would like to increase the padding on the left and right sides of the content area of every page/post of my site so that each paragraph of text is more narrow/less wide and thus easier to read. My understanding is that I need to make adjustments within the Stylesheet (style.css) of the theme editor for my theme, but I do not know what to do.
    Any assistance that you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  • You should ask in your theme’s support forum.
    You can probably use some CSS in the Additional CSS section of the Customizer, instead of changing the style.css (which will get overwritten on a theme update).

    Add to Additional CSS of the customizer:

    @media (min-width: 1200px)
    .container {
        width: 970px;

    If you want less than 970, there are more rules to add due to the way your theme manages widths.

    This isn’t really a Developing WordPress topic. I’m moving it to Fixing WordPress. The topic URL remains unchanged.

    @bcworkz @joyously : thank you for your assistance. I appreciate it.
