    I am trying to remove the space between the main content and the sidebar in the "awes" theme. I have spent a huge amount of time trying to change every bit of padding and margins, yet nothing seems to work.

    my blog is http://www.plaidmustache.com

    This is the space i'm looking to remove

    Any help!?

    Your "image link" leads to your cPanel login.

    You could try removing:

    .span-16 {
    width:630px;
    }

    from screen.css.

    Hi, thanks for helping!

    except I'm pretty new to css and html... I do not think my theme has a screen.css file, and I have searched every .php and .css file part of my theme for that bit of code: `.span-16 {
    width:630px;
    }`

    and not found it. any other suggestions or could you clarify what you mean?

  6. screen.css is in a subfolder /css/screen.css and might not be editable from the dashboard.

    it is not quite clear from your question if you want to move the content towards the sidebar, or if you want to make the content wider so it closes the gap to the sidebar(?)

    in the second case, there is also the width of .postwrap in style.css which you could change:

    .postwrap {
    background-color: transparent;
    width: 400px;
    float: none;
    margin-left: 100px;
    padding: 20px 15px 0px 10px;
    word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
    overflow: hidden;     /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
    }

    try and change 400px to 600px or similar.

    Ok so the screen.css is in a subfolder of what? and where is it accessible from? I looked in my theme folders and still couldn't find it.

    You are right i did not clarify... I am trying to move the sidebar closer to the content so that I can ultimately make the overall main width smaller so its uniform with the header. (If i make the overall main width smaller, then the sidebar wraps and goes below the main content)

    Thanks again.

    Ok so I found the Screen.css file in my awes theme, and removed the

    .span-16 {width:630px;}

    nothing happened.

    what next?

    actually I want to correct that.
    When I removed the .span-16 {width:630px;}

    the Nav bar ("home" and "about the stache") was moved to left side of the screen instead of being centered.
