Twenty Eleven delete blank space

  1. Hey all!

    I'm currently working on this website :

    http://advisoryandturnaround.com/?page_id=180

    and i'd like to know what i need to change in my CSS for the image to show larger on the page.

    I've been looking a bit everywhere, old posts/ideas but i can't seem to find how to remove the blank space on the right and the left of my picture.

    If it's not clear enough here's an image that shows what i want to delete : http://puu.sh/45KrD.jpg Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is matmanbiehler1.wordpress.com.

  2. That's not a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You posted to the wrong support forum. We do not provide support at WordPress.COM for any installs of WordPress.ORG software. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs being hosted right here on this multiuser blogging platform.

    If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

  3. @matmanbiehler1, You can widen the no-sidebar pages by adjusting the left and right margins (the 7.6%) in your CSS. To prevent your changes from being overwritten by a future theme update, I would suggest either installing and using the Custom CSS feature in the Jetpack plugin (if you do not have it already installed), or creating a child theme.

    .singular #content, .left-sidebar.singular #content {
        margin: 0 7.6%;
        position: relative;
        width: auto;
    }

    One other thing I'll offer, is when you use only an image in a page, they search engines cannot read the text in that image so they have no idea what the page is about, or where to place it in their search indexes. What would be better would be to put the base image (without the text) as a background in the post div and then put the text directly into the post editor so the search engines have something to work with.
