  • You are still going to have to edit the CSS of your site’s theme if you want to alter its appearance, despite using WordPress.

    ok, how do i do that?

    Open your theme directory on an ftp client and edit the CSS file for your theme.

    how about this, if i login to wordpress i can go into “appearance” and then under “twentyXS” settings it allows you to customize the css. what code should i put here to expand the overall width of everything?

    Ah, you are using a custom theme. Your best resource for altering a custom theme would probably be the developer that originally created it. Twenty XS looks to come from here: http://wordpressthememu.com/extend-themes/twentyxs.html

    andrewelman, add a new topic here: http://wordpress.org/tags/twentyxs
    Write in your post how wide the width should be in your case.
    And write what version of TwentyXS you’re using 🙂

    This is how I make a wide 1140 twenty eleven theme:

    In my child theme style.css

    #page {
    	max-width: 1140px;
    }
    .featured-posts,
    #ie7 article.intro {
    	max-width: 1140px;
    }

    In functions.php

    /* 200px less that the width! */
    if ( ! isset( $content_width ) )
    	$content_width = 940;

    That’s it!

    @digital Raindrops -im not finding any child theme style.css when i open the “edit themes” section of wordpress

    Hi Andrew,
    That is how I do it in a twenty eleven child theme, it may help others finding this topic 🙂

    I can go into “appearance” and then under “twentyXS” settings it allows you to customize the css

    That is where you would add the first block in your theme.

    The second should already be in functions.php, you would edit the value.

    You should really use a child theme, as it is based on a default theme it should support child themes.

    HTH

    well after doing what youve recommended not much has changed. im sure i did it wrong though.

    also i dont understand what you mean by “child” theme
