getting a wider blog for bigger pictures etc. ?

  1. I have a few issues that are probably very easy to resolve, I'm using the theme Manifest and would like to make my blog wider to accomodate bigger pictures, as well as create some space between the blog surface and the sidebar with "arcives" etc and remove the "recent posts" completely. For some reason a line as appeared on top of my blog (the one within the orange square in my screenshot) which I also want to remove...anyone able to help? I'm lost..Thans! :) Here's a direct link to the image in case my image code didn't work: http://tinypic.com/r/11ux7pf/6

    Note that a better way to add CSS to a WordPress.com blog if you are new to CSS is to select the "Add my CSS" instead of the "Don't use Manifest's CSS" option in the CSS Settings on the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page.

    Try updating that setting, removing all of the CSS you have now, and then add just this to the editor on the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page and save changes:

    #site-wrapper,
    #main-nav ul ul,
    #core-content,
    #comments h3,
    legend span,
    #footer,
    .footer-content {
    	width: 900px;
    }

    If you wanted to keep the widgets on the right side similar to how they're showing up now, you might try something like this instead:

    #site-wrapper {
    	width: 1000px;
    }
    #core-content {
    	width: 700px;
    }
    #footer,
    .footer-content {
    	float: left;
    	padding-left: 30px;
    	width: 270px;
    	margin-top: -15px;
    	padding-top: 0;
    	border-top: none;
    }

    You can remove the "Recent Posts" by removing it from the "Footer area one" container on the Appearance → Widgets page.

    Try the changes above and please post back here with an update about what other spacing you're trying to change.
