    I would like the “posts” page in the Forever theme to be full width. Currently there is a sidebar on the right. Is there a way to either use the “full width template” for the posts page or remove the sidebar via the CSS Upgrade?
    Your help is appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is thewayhome.me.

    There is only one alternative layout option in the theme here > Themes Options. These are the post formats provided by the theme:
    Standard – Your normal, average, everyday blog post. This is the default styling for your theme.
    Gallery – Usually will show a thumbnail from the blog post, as well as an excerpt of what the gallery is about.
    Aside – These are brief snippets of text that aren’t quite whole blog posts. Useful for quick thoughts and anecdotes
    Image — These posts highlight your images
    Status — Short updates about what you’re doing right now.
    Quote — These posts highlight your blockquoted text in a bolder way than standard posts do

    CSS editing cannot be used to edit theme functionality. It can only be used to change appearance and there is no option to remove the sidebar from posts.

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    You can make post content full width in the Forever theme using CSS.

    Try this to start, it will actually adjust all posts, pages and archives pages so you can get a good idea about how it could work. Note that you may want to do something more fancy with the sidebar widgets which are just pushed to the bottom and made wider in this example:

    #content {
      max-width: 890px;
      margin: 0 3.645833333333%;
    }
    #primary {
      margin: 0;
    }
    #secondary {
      width: 100%;
      max-width: 890px;
    }

    @timethief, no worries! Sometimes CSS can do amazing things that you wouldn’t expect.

    @james369, you may need to do some additional adjustments as you change the content and footer and such.
