    About 150% of what I have now :)

    Your theme overall width (sidebar to the meta blocks on the left site is 940px wide. 20% of the web is still on browsers that are 1024px wide. That means that if you increase the post area to 150%, that would be 1410px in overall width and that would mean that nearly 60% of the web surfing pubic would have to scroll horizontally to be able to see your page and horizontal scrolling is one of the top 10 things people dislike on the web. And as a matter of fact, the main content area for your posts would be wider than what a person on a 1024px wide monitor could view without horizontal scrolling (1180px).

    That is of course just my opinion as a web designer, so here you go.

    .col-full {
    width: 1400px;
    }
    
    #main.col-left {
    width: 1180px;
    }

    In the “maximum width for video/image field down below the CSS edit window, make sure and increase that number by 460px. Also, you will have to delete all the images from all of your posts and pages and reinsert them after making these changes.

    Note that when you alter a theme‚Äôs stylesheet, you only need to put in the Editor the modification/additions to the CSS, not the entire thing. I reccomend the Firefox add-on “Firebug”. It’s a live CSS editor and it shows you the edits on a live page so you see exactly what you’re doing. Of course the changes don’t take effect until you put the codes in your CSS editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-css/#css-help

    Please be patient while waiting for CSS editing help.
