    hello. I am using the 2011 theme, and want to remove all padding from each page's div. My link is: http://o-pd.com/MAKE/

    I would like my image, which is 1000px wide, to fit the entire width of the page, not like it is now with padding. But I can't seem to find the code in the css to get this to work.

    Can somebody help me figure this out?

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    Thanks Esmi, I will do that. But when I do, can you tell me what style's I will need to edit in order to make the primary div a full width with no padding? I can't seem to get it...

    I'm sorry but it is beyond the scope of these forums to deal with basic CSS issues. Try a dedicated CSS resource such as http://www.css-discuss.org/ instead. I'd also recommend using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.

    looking for an answer to this very question, I came across this thread.

    @esmi - why bother responding at all, if you don't even show the least of effort to provide an answer? (...and even more so, if it's just 'basic CSS' which I am sure you must have tons more experience with than the rest of us...)

    Just as cleanteam was looking for this very same answer... I am too!

    @esmi - I wouldn't consider this an "issue" for the individual but a basic necessity worth sharing on here as to support the needs of what seems to be at least a few people.

    Anyone have a solution? :)

    @munvo - per forum guidelines, you will be much more likely to get help if you start your own thread, rather than tacking on to an old one. You'll need to include a link to your site for help with CSS issues.

    @WPyogi - Sorry, didn't realize that. I'm speaking of the themes CSS not my own...

    So do you have a question? If you need help on any site with CSS, it's usually necessary for someone to see the actual site live.
