  • First off, I want to say sorry to moderator Alchymyth. I didn’t mean to break the rules in my previous post. I hope we can start fresh.

    Hopefully it’s not a problem for me to repost the topic again, but in a way that will not break rules.


    I’m having problems with my WordPress Twenty Eleven Theme. I’ll give some background information on my theme and what I was doing before it messed up below.

    I’m not the smartest when it comes to WP and I’m foolish for not doing some things I should of done before. Im paying the price for my neglegence.

    Theme: TwentyEleven v1.2 ( I know I haven’t updated it.. tisk tisk)

    Child Theme: No.. 🙁

    Back Up: No.. 🙁 again

    My site is, I use this site to sell my instrumentals and let people hear my music.

    I was doing some changes to the site last night in order to get the music player furthur up the page. Hence, I took the header off and tried to trim down on the padding. You may not be able to tell now but below is the code I had in the bottom of my .CSS file in order to do so.

    .page .entry-title { display: none; }
    #main {
        clear: both;
        padding: 0;
    #comments {
    #respond textarea #comment {
    } .hentry {
    padding: 0;

    The code above did as I wanted it to and I was pleased. No problems there. But, I just wanted to make the theme a tad bit wider now.

    So, I found a code on another site that I had thought would allow me to do so. It didn’t work out so well. You can see the code below:

    #page {
    	    margin: 1.5em auto;
    	    max-width: 1050px;
    	    border-top: 15px solid #bbb;
    	    -webkit-border-radius: 15px;
    	    -moz-border-radius: 15px;
    	    -o-border-radius: 15px;
    	    border-radius: 15px;

    Original Link to code:

    After inserting that code into my .CSS file, everything went haywire. And my site looks like it looks now. —>>

    The sidebar to my site is wayyyy off and towards the bottom of the pages.If you click the “Blog” tab on my menu, the sidebar does show up how it’s supposed to but if you select an article that you want to read, my site takes you to the articles page and the sidebar is down again.

    The margins (I think that’s what they’re called) are way off also but they are at the original settings in the .CSS file.How do I know? Because, I checked every single file in my theme’s editor against a fresh copy of TwentyEleven v1.2, using

    Now, even when I try to change values to things such as width and margin size in the .CSS editor, nothing changes and the format stays the same.

    Since I restored all of the .CSS code to the original. I don’t understand why it’s all off like it is if all of the code in the .CSS file is the same as the original.

    Thanks in advance and sorry again Alchymyth. Can we be friends? 🙂
