Support » Fixing WordPress » sidebar width adjustment for WP 3.3.1

    This version of WP seems to use different syntax from all the posts I’ve searched to find a way to increase sidebar width. No .sidebar or #sidebar in style.css and percentage values seem to be replacing pixel counts.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. My website is http://www.gocomga.org.
    Thanks

  • You are looking for #secondary, specifically .left-sidebar #secondary

    OK, I was able to adjust the left margin and width, but now it’s apparently too wide, and need to reduce the padding between the sidebar and main content, Can you give me a hint?
    Thanks

    Since you using twenty eleven theme I hope you have created a child theme and made changes in child theme as the them will be overwritten when you update wordpress and you will your settings.

    Yep – it’s all good.
    Thanks

    Just remember the basic structure of your theme is using percentages instead of hard numbers. So, change the margin percentages for:

    – sidebar = .left-sidebar #secondary
    – content = .left-sidebar #content

    I would suggest using Chrome, or FireBug, anything that lets you view the elements of your page for making these types of changes.

    Yes, I’m a big fan of Chrome. Thanks very much for your support.
