Chunk theme help

    I am new to CSS and have been trying forever to customize my blog. I’ve been looking everywhere as I am afraid to ask a very simple question but for some reason I cannot find the answer. So my question is: How can I get rid of the sidebar on the left (which includes comments…) and widen my blog to fit that space instead.
    The link to my blog is:
    Thank you!!!

    The blog I need help with is


    The post metadata at the left also contains the post title. I t can all be hidden, but it will require that we do something with the post title. Having posts without titles could be confusing for your visitors. Do you want to move the post title up above the post as in standard themes?

    One other thought would be to choose a different theme that does not have the metadata at the left of the posts, and then style that theme to look similar to what you have.


    I checked and it’s currently using the Blogum theme.

    To move the Blogum post titles and post meta from the left column to the tops of posts, add this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor:

    .post-meta {
    	position: relative;
    	width: 100%;
    .post-meta h1 {
    	margin-bottom: 0;
    .post-meta .post-categories,
    .post-meta .comments-link,
    .post-meta .post-edit {
    	background: none;
    	float: left;
    	padding: 0 1em 0 0;
    	margin-top: 0;
    .post-content {
    	border-top: none;
    	float: none;
    	width: 100%;
    body.single .post-meta {
    	padding: 10px 0 0 0;
    	margin: 0;
    body.single .post-content {
    	padding-top : 0;

    * Updated to include .post-categories and a few rules for single posts. Note that you may need to still adjust the spacing a bit for other types of pages or adjust it to your liking if you want to make any changes.
