    Hi,

    I am using the Vigilance theme with the Custom Design add on.

    I have successfully edited the sidebar to be smaller width wise and the content to be wider, and most of the text seems fine, however I have noticed that the things automatically embed, like youtube videos or photo galleries have not adjusted to the new width. They still appear centered or aligned to the old width. See the video at the bottom of this post: http://adventuresofourown.wordpress.com/2013/02/13/lent/

    It does the same thing with photo galleries.

    Also, you can see that there is a lot of disparity in the font sizes in the widgets on my sidebar. How can I adjust this and get the text in each of them to be the same size?

    Thanks!!

    The blog I need help with is adventuresofourown.wordpress.com.

    Try updating the “Content Width” value on your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page to match the new content area width you picked, 650.

    Try something like this to adjust the sidebar fonts:

    #sidebar ul li.widget ul,
    #sidebar p,
    #sidebar td {
    	font-size: 1.2em;
    }
