making posts as wide as the theme header

    I am pretty new to wordpress, and I bought the custom CSS upgrade. I’m using the twenty eleven theme, but am having trouble finding the exact area in the CSS sheet that allows me to make my posts as wide as the header (instead of the default width). I only have one column right now, and would like to maximize the width so that I can show larger images on my blog.
    Would love your help. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is


    Adjust the left/right margin value (7.6%) here:

    .one-column #content {
    margin: 0 7.6%;

    I wouldn’t go much less that 4.5% since you need some white space at the edges otherwise it makes it more difficult to read.


    You can then set the “full-sized” image value below the CSS editing text area to about 625px.
