    Hi, I am working on a website with wordpress theme 2010 and am
    making some minor adjustments to have the left and right margins of the
    main content area align vertically with the header. I have adjusted the right side, but when I make the same change on the left side (setting the padding from 20 px to 0), it shifts the main area too far to the right.

    I am very new to this, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is picturesofinfinity.net.

    Since your site is private, I cannot see it to see what you have done, so this becomes very difficult to impossible. Can you temporarily make the site visible so we can look at it?

    If not, then I’ll pass on answering and you will have to wait till staff come around since they can see your private blog. Volunteers such as myself cannot.

    So you want to remove the left and right padding?

    You currently have this in your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor:

    #wrapper {
    	width:920px;
    	background:#9397a1;
    	margin:20px auto 0;
    	padding:0 20px;
    }

    Try updating it to this:

    #wrapper {
    	width:940px;
    	background:#9397a1;
    	margin:20px auto 0;
    	padding:0;
    }

    Hopefully it will do what you want if I’ve understood your question correctly.

    That’s correct. Also note that the custom design upgrade is an annually renewable upgrade. Custom Design Upgrade FAQs here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions
