    Adding padding to the right of my content

    I’ve got a main content area and a sidebar to the right of it.
    I’d like to add some padding just on the right of my content area and possible some padding left and right to the sidebar. Is this possible? I’ve fiddles with this in style.css:

    /* 2.4 Content */
    #content {
    padding: 0 0 40px;
    position: relative;
    }

    but that just seems to effect the padding on the outside of the sidebar :-(

    thanks,

    Isabelle

    Hi Isabelle,

    One easy way to achieve something similar is to add some padding left/right to your widgets. You can do this by going to Canvas/theme options/styling and layout/widgets. Then find widget padding and experiment with putting different values in there.

    Let me know if that works for you :)

    Thanks Jamie – I finally got round to trying this.It’s useful but still doesn’t solve the problem that I’d like my main content, left of the widget, to have more padding.

    Hi Isabelle,

    I personally think it looks really good but if you want to increase the padding you could try adding the following to the custom.css file. Just change the padding-right value to suit.

    Thanks Jamie.
    Was curious to have a go anyway but that bit of css doesn’t seem to do anything.

    Hi,

    I’ve just tested on a demo site and it’s working for me.

    Can you check 2 things

    1) That you have put in the custom.css file (appearance /editor)

    2) That you have cleared the cache on your browser to see the change (ctrl/f5)

    Thanks Jamie – refresh usually works for me, but not this time and it worked when I did ctrl/f5!
