  • @staceyd i can just see an error 404..

    ** no premium version does not allow you to set a specific margin via an extra option.. you can make it via custom CSS though **

    margin-right:200px;
    margin-left:200px;

    KonradS Thanks for the respond… I used the above in the css and can’t see that it made a difference. What did I do wrong?

    I had to take the site down until it’s ready to go live.

    Make sure your CSS is valid:

    A tool like firebug is also useful to see what CSS is working and what is not – http://getfirebug.com

    @staceyd

    did you just write this?

    margin-right:200px;
    margin-left:200px;

    you need to have a selector around, WHAT to change..

    for example to get more content padding it should be something like:

    div#content div.padder {
    margin: 30px 20px 20px 20px;
    }

    that should give some more whitespacing inside the content..

    -> what exactly would you like to change?

    -> can you upload a screenshot with some markers or so?

    -> and a link to your site maybe?

    that would help A LOT.

    thanks, konrad

    Thanks so much!!! That worked!

    How would I do this for the menu bar and the header as well?

    Took a screen shot but have no idea how to paste it in.

    thanks again for your help Konrad.

    Hi staceyd,

    you mean the header main menu or the top header menu?

    try out this and modify:

    div#access a { padding: 10px 20px; }

    for the header try

    div#header { padding: 20px; }

    hope this helps, konrad

    p.s. if you have it online post a link, this should help a lot.
    a screenshot you could upload somewhere and post the link here 😉

    great.. both nav bar and logo shifted right using

    div#header { padding: 20px; }

    can you write for me to make the right hand side shift in as well.

    look at ozmint.com

    oh just realized this just made it 20 px wider. not shifted in. Is there a way to actually move it over right and keep the same width on the site?

    basically I want there to ba margins from top to bottom.
    from the header, container, etc.

    used these and it worked. Konrad, could not have done it without you. LEARNING!!!

    #content .padder {margin: 10px 5%}
    
    div#header { margin: 10px 5% }
