[resolved] [Theme: GameStylish] A few tweaks to sidebar and logo (5 posts)

    Hey,

    Alright so I've just decided to update the theme on my wordpress website and one of my widgets doesn't fit in the right sidebar and its not a easy widget to tweak :(.
    So I thought i'd resize the right sidebar to suit - however i dont know how to do that - Would anyone be able to lend me a hand :(?

    Thats my website - you can see on the right sidebar the raptr widget is out of size with the right column - is there anyway to extend that?

    This is the theme im using.

    Also I was wondering if there was anyway to use the full pagewidth instead of having a massive gap on the sides?
    As well as move the logo up a bit more - because as you can see it cuts into the menu >_<

    Thanks.

    None of your links are visible in your post...if you repost those, someone can likely help you.

    Sounds like all of those changes will involve editing the CSS code -- but before doing any of it, you'll want to either create a child theme or use a custom CSS plug-in if your theme does not have a custom CSS option built in. Otherwise, all your changes will be overwritten when the theme is updated.

    The other thing I'd suggest is to download and install Firebug -- which is a Firefox add-on that is super useful in working with CSS. There's lots of good documentation on their website as to how to use it.

    Unfortunately, that theme is not released under GPL which is not in keeping with WP policy and philosophy -- so it's not supported or welcome here. They also require that you keep the copyright info in the footer -- another undesirable feature. I'd really suggest you find another theme -- this may add some info on theme quality:

    If you opt to keep using it, it looks like the vendor provides support, so perhaps they can help you.
