[SOLVED] Increase size of centre area

Hello, I find that the left edge of the central area of my blog is too close to the text (see attached picture). I would like to increase the left margin further so that there is more white space on the left. How do I go about doing that? I've been poking around the Atahualpa Theme Options menu but can't see how to do it.



The blog is here if you would like to take a look. There's really nothing there yet, I've been working on it off and on for a few weeks now.

ETA: Forgot to mention, I'm using Atahualpa 3.5.3

That did it, but now the centre column is a solid block of white, it doesn't have the gaps which I prefer. I especially don't like it for viewing individual posts. How do I just increase the left margin without eliminating the gaps?

In that case take out the code I just mentioned and play around with padding in ATO>Style Posts & Pages>Post Container

Thanks, I've tried changing each of the numbers in Post Container but they only change the space on the top and bottom of posts, not the sides. Any other suggestions?
