Blog Widening with custom CSS

  1. Hey everyone,

    I created a new blog recently: sacredpixels.com
    I'm using the sapphire theme what I really like, the only thing though is that I'd like the whole blog (including header) to be about 30% wider... I'm pretty sure this is possible with the custom CSS option. Only thing is that I don't know how to do it.. Is there anyone who can help me out?

    Thanks,

    Vivek

    The blog I need help with is sacredpixels.com.

  2. The CSS upgrade is not recommended for people with no CSS experience. There's no official support for it, and only a couple of forum volunteers who know what they're doing with it. You're pretty much on your own. Have you read the resources recommended in the CSS forum?

  3. I was hoping someone could give me the magical formula that would do the trick for me. Haven't checked the resources... I will give it a shot...

  4. Hi there,

    Widening a theme with CSS is possible but it's actually non-trivial. The aesthetic of most themes are closely tied to fixed size backgrounds and art assets, so--in many cases--those would need to be enlarged proportionally or edited as well.

    As raincoaster mentioned, I would recommend reading up thoroughly. This article is a good start as well as the tutorials it links to:

  5. Thanks! I'll have a looks at that!
