    Hi,

    I've just installed the Twenty Twelve theme and set it without side bar. Now the body width is 960. How can I make it shorter, e.g. 800? Thanks.

  2. start by creating a child theme of Twenty Twelve; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    then post a link to your site to illustrate what you have so far;

    and try working with a browser inspection tool such as Firebug http://getfirebug.com/ to identify which styles are formatting the theme's width.

    Thanks. I have already create a child theme. My site is: http://www.tianxiafumuxin.com
    I don't know how to work with firebug yet.

  4. I have already create a child theme.

    no - you haven't. it is your own risk to work without a child theme - any customisations will be lost when you upgrade the theme.

    I don't know how to work with firebug yet.

    keep practicing - it can be quite useful when you want to continue customising your site.

    try to add something like this to style.css:

    .full-width .site { max-width: 800px; }

    Thanks for your help, alchymyth. I did create a child theme but I didn't uploaded nor activated it. It is Sunday so take our time. No hurry! :)
    I don't know much about WordPress nor CSS, I appreciate very much your help.
