Changing width of center text column

OK I am almost done getting my blog to look like I want it to. Nothing fancy, but atahualpa makes it look elegant enough

I have removed the left sidebar, and would like to get the post text in the center column to be more compact without changing the width of the right sidebar or the entire layout. I would appreciate if I could be pointed to how to do so two ways:

* By increasing the white space to the right of the text in the center column (about an inch of white space.)

* By adding white space to the left of the right sidebar, inside the dashed border.

Sorry if this is a really basic request, but I tried fiddling with all possible options, with no luck, and I know nothing about HTML or PHP. It's like I am throwing crap to the wall and seeing what sticks

Thanks much.

You can add padding-left: XXpx; to
Sidebars -> LEFT sidebar style

or add padding-right: XXpx; to
Center -> Center column style

There should already be padding values in the textareas of both, change the existing ones of add yours at the boom

That did it! Appreciate the help, Flynn. One last question for now: when I click the title of each post, and it opens the single post, why does the title font change although I have both set to the exact same values below ( HEADLINE Box: Links also has text-decoration: none; )

color: #7EC700;
letter-spacing: -1 px;
font-family: tahoma;
font size: 18 px;
font weight: bold;

Put only the link related styles (color, underline) in the link box. Especially font-size and weight should only be in the text related box as otherwise it might add up each other


h2 (controlled through text box) = font face, size etc...
a (controlled through link box) = link default color, hover color, underline

Flynn, I reset the Headline Links field box to default values, and left the font family + size in the text box as you said. Why does the single post headline still turn bold after being clicked on? I don't understand.

It is getting the overall, site-wide style for H2 which is font-weight: bold;

add font-weight: normal; to HEADLINE Box: Text


alignment, column width, text
