Changing margins in mystique theme

    How do I change the margins on the pages ? Want the content on pages to come in a little more

    2nd questions – I want to create columns but every time I do a copy and past from word, the columns don’t align correctly .

    The blog I need help with is


    1. Add the following to your CSS and then change the value for left and right padding (1em is the current and you can use decimals such as 2.4em).

    #content-container #content {
    padding-left: 1em;
    padding-right: 1em;

    2. MS Word is a program meant for print media and does not speak “web.” In fact, copying and pasting from MS Word in the past was responsible for multiple threads in the forums each day where someone said, “OMG Halp!!!1! My blog has blown up! Fix it!!!! People are dying!!!!”

    That is why wordpress now automatically strips out all the junk code in MS Word copy/paste.

    There is no way to create “linked” content columns within a post or page. You can create columns using divs and CSS, but the two columns of text would be separate. What exactly are you wanting to accomplish?


    On the About Us page, the clients list is listed and I didn’t want it so long, wanted to put create columns with the lists. Every time I try it won’t align .


    I’ve not tried this at wordpress, but use it all the time in Joomla and Drupal when I need columns for stuff similar to what you are doing.

    <div style="float: left; width: 45%>content of left column here</div>
    <div style="float: right; width: 45%>content of right column here</div>

    Whoops! use this code, I forgot the ending ;”

    <div style="float: left; width: 45%;">content of left column here</div>
    <div style="float: right; width: 45%;">content of right column here</div>

    One more thing. Paste that into the HTML tab in the page editor and leave the placeholder text in there and then you know where the divs are when you switch back to the visual editor and you can then use the standard formatting features of the visual editor.
