[twenty eleven] can't widen pages / theme (4 posts)

    Hi there

    I have been trying to widen my site via stylesheet of the child theme. I am at http://www.nadaav.com/n

    But I can't seem to widen it beyond approx 1000px. I only want to widen it by about another 100 but can't seem to manage. I tried this code, which I saw on the forums elsewhere:

    #page {
        margin: 2em auto;
        max-width: 1200x;
    }
    
    .singular .entry-header,
    .singular .entry-content,
    .singular footer.entry-meta,
    .singular #comments-title {
        width: 90%;
    }

    The content / text area width did increase within the page but the overall page width has remained. It causes me a problem on this page in particular: http://nadaav.com/n/films/showreels/ where I wold like the screens to sit three abreast.

    I'd really appreciate any thoughts as to whats causing the problem - is it possible some other code in my style sheet is preventing the widening?

    thanks kindly

    Hi everyone,

    just wondering if I am doing something wrong here.

    what is the best way to widen the page overall?

    thanks

    Where did you make this change:

    #page {
        margin: 2em auto;
        max-width: 1200x;
    }

    a:
    right now, the style is commented;

    b:
    use a valid unit for the max-width; for instance 'px' - 'x' is not valid.
