Well the strange things is that I don't recall changing any CSS recently so I don't see how I could have added that. (Perhaps one of my coworkers did). In any case, do you know where I can find this CSS file that this is in (that is, the directory)? I'm still a bit unfamiliar with the way WP organizes (or disorganizes) the files.
If you have problem with your wordpress appearance, you should edit your CSS script. But before change your script, it recommended for you to backup your code so that nothing error, you can restore your script.
Thanks, I found the file. The padding on the left was reduced significantly when I changed it to 0, but there is still some left for some reason (even though I am using !important). Any ideas why that could be?
Your background is not centered, I don't think the image you are using has the correct dimensions on the left and right. Basically your page is in the middle of the page, but the background is not. The right side of the background is longer than the left. Instead of fixing the image, I think it would be better to just adjust the CSS (code above) since if you edit the image, you will lose the crisp quality of the original aspect ratio.
