    I would like to change the width of my main column in Thememin from 560 to 640. Is this possible?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi there, while changing column sizes can be done, it can be a tricky thing to do as changing one column size in turn affects others.

    The main column – an ID called primary – is defined by this CSS:

    #primary {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 -270px 0 0;
    width: 100%;

    The overall container is defined through this CSS:

    #page {
    background-color: #fff;
    display: block;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 41px 20px 0;
    width: 960px;

    Try adjusting things by adding this to your custom CSS, to gain the extra 80px of width in the main column:

    #page {
    width: 1040px;



    Thank you, Kathryn!

    Once again, your advice was perfect. The column width has been successfully changed and nothing was adversely affected. I’m delighted.

    Thank you so much for your help.
