How to make posts wider?

  1. Earlier I submitted a question wondering if you can make posts full width. What I mean by that is if it is possible to edit the CSS to where if you click on a post it will come up in the same fashion as a full-width page template.
    Thanks for your help

    The blog I need help with is thegoonermonkey.wordpress.com.

  2. That makes the posts move to the left a little bit but it does not make them larger to take up more space.
    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks for your help

  3. I do not help with CSS editing. This thread is tagged and will be moved to the CSS Forum for you. Please be patient and do not create another thread.

  4. I checked the blog you selected when you created your help request, and I see it is currently using the Oxygen theme:
    http://thegoonermonkey.wordpress.com/

    Next, I found two example pages for reference. Here is a page using the full-width page template:

    And here is a recent post:

    I noticed you already have this custom CSS to hide the right sidebar on single posts:

    .single-post #tertiary {
    	display: none;
    }
    .single-post #content {
    	margin-right: 0;
    }

    You can do the same thing to the left sidebar (#secondary) and set the left margin to zero to get an effect that's more like the full-width page template. In addition to the CSS you already have, add this:

    .single-post #secondary {
    	display: none;
    }
    .single-post #content {
    	margin-left: 0;
    }
