How to change page width and margin in Twenty Eleven theme

  1. Hi,

    I'd like to change the width and margin of a particular page in the twenty eleven theme, and was wondering if anyone knows which parameters I need to change in the style.css OR better Child CSS?

    What I would like to do is have a Gallery page that is styled differently from the other pages for the purposes of including a NextGen Gallery that stretches to the width of the whole page (ie without the margins). It would also be cool if i could make it so the text remains indented (with margin), so if someone posts a comment about a gallery, the text has some margin.

    So I was wondering what I should include in my Child CSS that would make changes to my 'Gallery Page' in this way?

    Any advice much appreciated

  2. Hi. Since you are talking about a Child CSS, any chance your site is actually self-hosted? If so, you should go to for assistance.

    You are currently in a forum for blogs hosted by, which don't work the same way as self-hosted WordPress sites.

    If you are not sure whether your site is or self-hosted, please provide us with the address (http://...)

  3. Most definitely would have to be self-hosted to use the nextgen plugin.
