    first off..excellent theme..it’s really nice and clean, but I find the right sidebar to be wider than needed. with that being said, which files/css do I need to edit to make the entire right sidebar the same width? after I adjust the width of the right sidebar, I’d like to adjust the article area to make it wider. maybe in a future release you can make that an option in the admin backend.

    here’s my site which I plan on tweaking:

    I don’t think I’ll be including that as an option in the backend for the theme. I just don’t see many users of the theme needing this change, so adding those options will only clutter the Options page.

    Please use a child theme to make this modifications instead.

    can you tell me what needs to be changed to accomplish what I’m looking for?

    I’d really appreciate it.

    You need to change the width CSS property of the following elements:

    Increase the width of these elements:

    #content-main
    .post
    .entry

    Decrease the width of these elements by the same amount you increased the width of the above elements:

    #sidebar-right
    .sidebar div.sidebar-wrap

    Hi Syahir

    Firstly thank you so much for designing this gorgeous theme!

    I’ve been trawling through the various postings as I’m anxiously trying my best to widen the column margins and essentially create a bigger page for text. My site is http://www.oleassence.com or http://www.oleassence.fr

    I have widened the width of the

    #content-main

    .post

    .entry

    But when I try to decrease the width of the “sidebar” it doesn’t work…I should add I’m a total amateur at CSS so that doesn’t help!

    Would really appreciate your help – I need something more along the lines of this site http://www.jungleman.dk/junglemans_blog/

    Thanks for your help in advance!!

    Migrating from blogger to wp, like your theme best so far. Just want a few tweeks

    I too am wanting to change the width. I want less margin (white space) on either side as well as want to be able to accomodate 2 125×125 buttons sideby side in the right side widget. I am running in preview right now…http://4our2cents.com.previewdns.com/

    Thanks!
