[resolved] [Twenty Eleven] Increasing width sidebar (6 posts)

    I want to increase the width of my sidebar and widgets (I guess the widgets are directly influenced by the width of the sidebar itself)

    My sidebar is on the right, but whatever method I tried that I found on the internet it didn't work. Does anybody know a way how I can change this width?

    My site is currently offline and I'm using a child theme.

    For the sidebar, have you tried;

    #secondary {
     width: yourWidth;
    }

    If you increase the sidebar width, you're likely to push it down the bottom, as it will not fit aside the primary content.

    To change the widget width, have you tried;

    #secondary aside {
     width: yourWidth;
    }

    I also use your code and it worked like a charm but it seems the sidebar has been align to the right.My question is that is it possible for me to slightly align it to the left also.
    My second question is how to increase the other side of the sidebar.
    Thanks in advance.
