[SOLVED] Adjusting the width of the td#middle
 
I've used this theme a lot, and I know I am missing something very small, but I would appreciate someone knocking me over the head with the "obvious" thing I am missing. I am working with the newer version (3.4.1 - which is sweet), so I wonder whether something changed and I am not seeing it.

I want to adjust the middle so that it fits on the following blog : http://rutlanddesigner.com/blog/. Basically adjusting the "post" and center content area so that I can get the sidebar to fit within the white area I have set (which is currently a background of the Layout container). I adjust the CSS through Firebug, but I can not stop it from being 100%.

Help!

:)

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to set the width on the COL element, not the TD, because this table is set to table-layout:fixed

coltwo {
width: ....
}

Thank you very much, that helped and did the job perfectly.

I have one more issue, and that is the spacing around this area is quite a lot and is pushing the sidebar. How can I adjust the left/right spacing around the content (posts, text, etc)? I have tried adjusting the padding, etc, to no avail. Setting the col width adjusted so that the text is the right spacing, but if I increase it everything gets pushed off of the side (or the side of the background I have designed). I am currently keeping it at 650px, but I would like it a little wider and to meet closer to the beginning of the sidebar (without squishing the contents of the sidebar). Hope this all makes sense.

Thanks again!

Put

padding: 0;

at Style & edit CENTER COLUMN -> Center column style

Thanks, Flynn.

I did that, and then increased the Col width to 800px, and it is currently pushing my sidebar out of the defined space. Any other ideas what settings I might need to change, or that I might have messed up?

You have a padding of 170px there

td#middle {
padding:10px 170px;
...

THANK YOU. I see exactly what I did, and have fixed the padding all around correctly. It is looking like a dream!

You are the best!!
