  2. oh my which one do you think will help, there's so many :(

  3. Start with anything labeled "Beginner" or "Resources." Take your time and learn it before you start tinkering with a live blog. CSS editing isn't a timed event.

  4. Right I totally hear you, but I would just assume that someone would know how to achieve this look. I've looked around and I just can't get it right...I dont think im asking an outrageous out of this world or difficult question, but thanks for your feedback.

  5. Someone probably does, and the CSS upgrade comes with staff support, but there's just not a lot of it, and almost zero CSS volunteer help. That is why we ALWAYS recommend people learn and practice first, and then buy the upgrade once they know they can make use of it. It's like, why would we let you buy a car without making sure you could drive? At WP.com they let you, but then you and a lot of other people get stuck not getting where you want to go.

  6. Welcome! I checked out your CSS and it looks like you're off to a good start. You widened the wrapper area, and now you also need to widen the main column. In the Blogum theme, the main column on the home page is using class="post-content" and that means you can widen it and also reset the max-width for images inside posts using CSS like this:

    .post-content {
        width: 745px;
    }
    .post-content img {
        max-width: 745px;
    }

    Note that some photos may not expand automatically if they were inserted at a small size when you added them. In those cases, you either need to remove and re-insert the images or you can adjust the values in the HTML editor for the images to reflect the size you want. Removing and re-adding them is easier.

    I would also recommend setting the limit width value on the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page to match your main content width, 745 in the example above.

  7. OMG you are so AWESOME @designsimply thank you a million times! :) Take CAre

  8. Cheers :)
