Sapphire theme help!!

  1. i recently purchased the css upgrade for my blog. as of now there is only a minor change i would like to make, anyone thats is familiar with the sapphire theme will notice that the posting area is quie thin and has a navy blue background.

    my question
    is there a way i can make the posting area wider
    and change the navy blue background?
    thanks

  2. The question is, how wide you want it?

    Right now it's 450px wide, Do you want it with a width of 500px at least?

    I'd strongly recommend you not to tweak your CSS that much if you have little or no knowledge of CSS because tweaking one element, might lead you to tweak another so that it looks well with your first tweak and so on... and if you don't know what you're doing, you might end up with a messed up blog. Just a recommendation.

    If you want your postings area to be at least 500px wide, then modify the .narrowcolumn selector like this:

    .narrowcolumn {
    	float: left;
    	padding: 0 0 20px 20px;
    	margin: 0px 0 0;
    	width: 500px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    }

    If you want it wider than that, is very likely that you'll have to modify other elements in order to accommodate the new width of your posts area, so... I'd recommend you to take that into consideration before you do it or choose another theme.

    To change the navy blue bg, add the following to your CSS:

    body{background: [color you want] !important;}

    HTH

  3. oh cool . thanks for the help

  4. i was able to change the background color and width but, i noticed there is still quite a thick border around the content area, how can i remove this
    and also how can I add separators underneath each post..?

    Excuse me but I see an animated advertisment for a magazine in your sidebar. The wordpress.com no advertising policy can be viewed here http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/12/08/adsense/
    Also note section 2, 5th bullet in the Terms of Service you agreed to to get a blog here. WordPress.com blogs cannot be used to drive traffic to third party sites http://wordpress.com/tos/
    If you require clarification then please contact staff as volunteers cannot debate policy on the forums and it's staff that make the call on what's allowed and what isn't. http://wordpress.com/contact-support/

  6. it is a link to a myspace page, its my own myspace page im not getting paid by putting it there. similar to your 'associates' part on your blog.
