Not sure which files I need to tweak, please help?

    I modified the main CSS (style.css) to make my main column smaller (width). I thought my “categories” and “archives” pages would follow suit, but they do not – the main column is the original width and pushes my sidebar down below. Whenever I change anything else in the style.css (headings, fonts, colours, what have you), it changes on all pages, so why not the column width?

    Thanks for any and all help!

    Don’t tweak your column width using CSS. Change them in Graphene Options –> Display –> Column Width Options.

    ..the main column is the original width and pushes my sidebar down below.

    This happens when you change column width in CSS.

    Don’t hack the parent theme’s core files. You’ll lose your customisations on theme update. Use a child theme instead.

    If it is not the site you’re talking on, then provide URL of the site where you have problems.

    Thank you so much for your quick reply! 🙂

    I don’t have Display–>Column WIdth Options. I only have a “Column Modes.” Is this because I have already tweaked my original theme files?

    I should probably start from scratch and create a child theme.

    The site I need help with is a blog and I am not ready to show it publicly. I hope this is not offensive. :/

    If you don’t have column width option in Graphene options means you are still using an older version of Graphene theme. Customisable column width options is added in version 1.6, and the latest version of Graphene theme is 1.6.2

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I cannot believe I didn’t even see that my theme needed updating. I just updated it and it fixed everything. I feel like I wasted your time, and I apologize. But thanks so much for your time. 🙂
