    Need help! - Issues with my websites width/size

    My website isn't wide enough and currently looks too small on users computer screens.

    I was wondering if there is a quick fix to resolve this? I'm not very advanced with coding and only know the very basics. I would really appreciate any advice/instructions. Which files I should be looking at?

    Thanks

    In my opinion it looks perfectly fine.

    You have to be a little bit careful about expanding it because
    it may put too much space between objects on the screen.

    You can experiment with some small size changes to see what happens.

    In the file called:
    http://www.studeeze.com/templates/default/style/main_layout.css

    You will see this at the beginning ...

    .maincontainer {
    width: 800px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    /* the auto value on the sides, coupled with the width, centers the layout */
    }

    800 pixels (800px) is the width of the main container.
    Try changing that to 960px; and see what happens.

    I didn't look far enough to see if all other sections will expand by percent.
    But just that small change might make it look better to you.

    Huge thanks for your help with this. I have successfully managed to adjust my websites width.

    There is one issue I have with the navigation bar. I am unsure where my web developers have placed this file. I'm looking to add a "Help" tab to the nav.

    Any idea as to whereabouts I would locate the navigation file on my server?

    Thanks

    Not 100% certain if its php, but if its js then its probably on each page

    PHP Code:
           <nav>
                <
    ul>
                <
    li class="border_none margin_none child_pad"><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/offers/" >Offers</span></a></li>
                    <
    li class="border_none"><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/student/portfolio/" >CREATE PORTFOLIO</span></a></li>
                    <
    li><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/search/" >FIND WORK</a></li>
                    <
    li><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/search/student-search/" >FIND STUDENTS</a></li>
                    <
    li><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/project/post-joblanding/" class="select">POST A JOB</a></li>
                    <
    li><a href="http://www.studeeze.com/cms/aboutus/" >ABOUT </a></li>
                    <
    section class="clear"></section>
                </
    ul>
            </
    nav
