Hope you can help, chums.

I already have my website up and running but I am unhappy with the width of the main body. I'd like it widen slightly. Is this modified in the css style or the html?

I'm sure it's a simple case of changing the values of something. A 2 second job when you know how. I can direct someone to the page if they're willing to help, but I will not post the url here. Thanks. :)

I'd be happy to have a look, just pm me the website address and I can see how easy it would be.

As it's a fixed width, in your style sheet; change below to suit.

#wrap {
margin: 0 auto;
width: 800px;
}

Although think about mobile devices. I've done a few 760 fixed width sites and they display nicely on an ipad.

@Satelliteman, I pressed the 'like this' button but I got this message, 'YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR QUOTA OF POSTIVE VOTES FOR THE DAY'.

In other words it wouldn't accept my thank you. Very odd. Cheers.

No worries, hope you get it sorted.

If you get stuck, email me the CSS sheet to paul@satellites.co.uk
