Support » Fixing WordPress » Resizing widgets


    Its been a while since I messed with web stuff. Decided to pick up WordPress to get our companies newsletter online. Hosted it on a random domain we own and and have actually had an easy time getting everything setup!

    One thing I was curious about doing was getting those widgets’ WIDTH on the right side of the page to be smaller. Could anyone please help me find where I can change the values to get what Im looking for?

    Thank you so much!

  • Do you know CSS? You’d want to edit the value of div#content-sidebar{} and set the width value to a lower percentage than the default 29%. Of course, that would make the main content too narrow, so you would need to add the percentage you removed from the sidebar to the center or left sections to bring it back to 100% combined.

    You could also leave the sidebar the same size and just edit the width of the widgets individually. The text widget could be reduced with:

    .textwidget {
      max-width: 250px;

    Then apply the same rule to the other widgets.

    Perhaps an easier option would be to switch to a theme that looks closer to what you want to accomplish.
