    Hello Kat,

    There are two ways to do this. The smartest way would be to create add a class to your style css, something like:

    .beanpole{
       width: 100%
       padding-left: 30%
       padding-right: 30%
    }

    and then create your column like so:

    [column class="beanpole"]bla bla bla blibber blabber blibblabber[/column][end_columns]

    The second way to achieve this is to define the width and padding attributes directly in the shortcode like so:

    [column width="100%" padding_left="30%" padding_right="30%"]bla bla bla blibber blabber blibblabber[/column][end_columns]

    Let us know which method you went with and if it did the trick!

    Another way to create a floating centered column would be to use the first method above, but use margins rather than padding like so:

    .beanpole{
       width: 250px;
       margin: 0 auto;
    }

    This should create a 250px wide column and place it centered on the page.

    Hi Baden,

    Thanks much for all the suggestions. I think my theme has been overly-edited and nothing seems to work, though. The posts are either too wide, or stick to being left-aligned.

    Will try to work with another theme.

    Thanks again, though!

    I am having a different problem. I can’t get it to create 2 columns and the sidebar. It stays 1 column and a sidebar from the twenty eleven theme. I want to create a newspaper column look at http://roundhousetalk.com and maybe I am putting the css code and the page code in the wrong place. Any suggestions? I posted before but no answer so thought I would try here.

    what shortcode you are using to create the columns?

    Example 1: 2 column layout using class only
    [column class=”column1″]Column 1 content goes here.[/column] [column class=”column2″]Column 2 content goes here.[/column] [end_columns] Note: .column1 and .column2 must be defined in your theme’s style.css

    I placed this in the css and the column class for 1 and then 2 into the page HTML.

    ok, that looks right. Your .column1 and .column2 classes are in your theme’s css as well… so which page are you trying to place this in? Can not seem to see it at http://roundhousetalk.com
