[resolved] [Theme: Arcade basic] How to increase space between content and sidebar (3 posts)

    I could use your expertise on this.

    I want to increase the space between the content area and the widget in my blog (this is it -> ioannaaggelidaki.com), my theme is Arcade Basic.
    I have been reading similar threads and I understood that I need to change the padding-left: 15px to 60px in the style.css file. But that changes nothing so I am obviously missing something (that should be a certain widget size percentage right?)

    Thank you in advance! :)

    Hi Loanna,
    If you go to Appearance > Customize, you will see an option for Layout. There you can set your Main Content Width to a greater percentage. This will make your right side widget smaller and your main content area larger. Also, I would just verify you're changing the padding on the main content element. Hope this helps!

    Thank you Jason!

    Looks like the problem was quite different cause the blog didn't seem to understand the changes I made in style.css (increasing the padding and so on). Turns out a plugin was blocking the way...

    Thank you so much for heplind me, changing the padding worked beautifully! :)
