How to move columns and widen images

  1. Hi,
    I would like to increase the width of my images from 480 to 600, however when I do this, the right hand column (archives, categories etc) is moved to the bottom, below the posts. How can I move this column to the left hand side?

    I am using the Oulipo theme.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is katealicecookbook.com.

    Without widening the overall theme, you can achieve about 585px by adjusting the width of the content area and adjusting the left and right margins. This puts things a little close to the right sidebar, and to the title and navigation links on the left. Give this a try and see what you think.

    #entry-content {
    margin: 0 0 0 1em;
    width: 37em;
    }

    In the maximum video/image width field down below the CSS edit area, change that width to 585 and save the changes.

    You will have to delete and reinsert your images and make sure to select "full-sized" and they should come in at 585px wide, unless the original image you uploaded is narrower than that in which case it will come in at the width of the original image.

    Oulipo is a little different to work with since all the widths are in em units and an em unit depends on what size font and what font face is being used, and can't easily be converted into px values.

  4. Thanks for your help. I did this and while I like it, I would like the images just that bit larger if I can manage it - if the right hand column could be nudged further to the right perhaps, or moved to the left. However, if it makes things too tricky I'd be happy with them as they are.

    Many thanks again.
