modify content width for ONE page (not global)

    Working with Contempt theme & Custom CSS. I’ve used the following CSS to increase the content width on my pages globally:

    #content {

    How can I make an exception to this CSS rule? I’d like the Blog page to have standard width (not 650px)

    Thank you,

    The blog I need help with is


    I checked the original stylesheet for the Contempt theme, and I found that the width for the content area is normally 450px. See

    If you have added CSS like this on your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page to adjust the width to 650px throughout the whole site:

    #content {

    The you can override that just on the blog page with CSS like this:

    .blog #content {
    width: 450px;

    Adjust the width number as necessary. Note that this CSS is specific to the Contempt theme.
