    That’s never going to happen 100% of the time. Your product blocks are 120px wide, so 4 of them will not fit across the 450px wide page area. Expanding the page content area will take a fairly major theme/CSS re-write.

    Hi esmi,

    thanks for the response.
    but for normal text I can’t seem to stretch it across too…i.e. this page:


    im confused as to what you are trying to achieve… do you want all the main data in the middle column?

    and you dont have a div for a left column, you have right and middle…. no left

    There’s no text on It’s all images.

    ignore the background image. I want the main data to span from left to right (up till right sidebar) just like this:

    thanks scoe 🙂

    Esmi, this page is with text:
    it’s odd that the text stops short of right margin 😀

    This is your CSS on style.css line 277:

    .middle {
    background:transparent none repeat scroll 0 0;
    border:0 solid #2B3E4D;

    change the width to approx 660px:

    looking again.. that will fix that page, however will screw up your home page.

    You need to change the divs from the home page and your page, rename the .middle div then apply the width change.

    you should be able to do this in the page.php file, unless you have changed all that already =]

    omg, scoe!!! you saved my day!!! Love u big time!! 😀 😀 it’s all well now.
    Thank you so very much.

    oh yeah the homepage is screwed LOL

    oh no it’s not working…the homepage cant seem to get away from the other pages 🙁

    did you try re-naming the div? you will need to take all the styles accross too, not the most elegant of fixes, but if it works….

    hi scoe, I’m not sure how to rename the div…hmmm I’m pretty much an IT/CSS idiot :S
    is there somewhere I can read up on modifying the div/ styles?
    thank you so much.

    to rename the div you just change its name. It will say <div id=”something”> or <div class=”something”> you just change the word in between the quotes.

    That in turn references you stylesheet (css)

    div id=”something” will be #something in your css
    div class=”something” will be .something

    so you change the name of the div to anything you want that is not already in your css, then in your css make a matching entry for the div you just named, then apply your css.

    The easiest way would be to just copy that other entire block of css, paste it right under itself, change the name to whatever you renamed the div to, and adjust its width accordingly

    I hope that makes sense, I’m very tired….
