    How Do I Make This Column Wider?

    Hi! I'm trying to expand the width of this main/left column on this site.


    Here's a link to my style.css code at pastebin:


    I've figured out that increasing the width of the following sections within the style.css has the following effects:


    right sidebar #content - shifts left column right
    right sidebar #main - moves left border of right column to the right
    right sidebar #content .col2 - moves left column to the left
    right sidebar #secondary - move banner of right column to the left


    But I'm having trouble figuring out what changes the width of the left/main column.
    I selected this section of the page using Firebug, and as you can see, it points to the right sidebar #content .col2 section of the style.css.



    As I mentioned above, modifying the width of this section moves the left/main column to the right and left, but it doesn't actually modify the width of it.

    How do I expand the width of this section?

    Change fright to fleft on the "main column" or the column that contains "Our Free Report Tells You..."



    Now you can change the width of the main column (col2):

    On line 210 of style.css:
    Code:
    .right-sidebar #content .col2 {
         width: 447px; /* increase this */
    }
    If these aren't the changes you were looking for, describe what the "main/left columns" are.
    There are a lot of columns. Let us know what is in these specific columns.

    Best Regards,

    I'm having difficulty finding that code in my php and stylesheet files.

    From your screenshot, it looks like you correctly identified the column I'm speaking of.

    I searched my files for the word "fright" but I've been unsuccessful in finding it.

    Are you sure it's possible to find it? I thought I was told before that CSS generates html; is it possible that you're referring to html that's generated from CSS and/or php files?
