[Resolved] Right Column Width Size

  • I am new to this and am setting up http://www.aimlow.com
    I am using the Kirby Theme. I set up the Widget area on the right side of the page. I put AdSense Code in the Text Widget. The widget width is not wide enough to display the full ad so half gets cut off…

    Am i doing this in the best way?

    Is there a way I can make the right column wider to fit the whole ad?
    I am not a coder and have poked around trying my best to figure this out.
    TIA,
    Rob

    make a backup copy of your theme files before editing

    try, and edit 2c-r.css:

    #container {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0 -300px 0 0; /*was 240px */
    	width: 100%;
    }
    #content {
    	margin: 0 320px 0 20px;
    }
    #primary,
    #secondary {
    	float: right;
    	position: relative;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	width: 300px; /*was 220px */
    }

    Thanks… that almost worked… it made the column wider, but it also sent it to lower on the page beneath the posts. I’ll leave it up for a while if you have a chance to look at it

    Oh wait… that worked… I forgot one line on the first post… thank you very much.

    well done,

    just saw (in IE7) that longer post titles can intrude into the sidebar, now that the gap is narrower:

    edit style.css and add a max-width:

    .entry-title {
    	color: #000; max-width:600px;
    	font-size: 21px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }
