Hey, i'm new to css, i only know a little html. I was wondering with this wordpress blog: http://manda-chan.animeblogger.net/

What do i need to make it so that the blog post boxes stretch to where the end of the header image is at, making it a little longer? I've giving this to a few friends and many are saying its going to be very hard to do because its not using tables. Is there anyway i can do this, even if i would have to rewrite the hole thing?

Any help will be wonderful, been working on this for a while now.

Try changing this in your CSS code:



/***************************************************************************/
/* This is the container for the whole page */
/***************************************************************************/

.page {
max-width:none;
min-width:none;


position:relative;
padding:5px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:left;
}

to this:



/***************************************************************************/
/* This is the container for the whole page */
/***************************************************************************/

.page {

width:100%;
position:relative;
padding:5px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:left;
}

This is what it looks like in the theme editor:


.page {
max-width:none;
min-width:830px;

/* IE Hack (http://blog.unmatchedstyle.com/hacks/min-width-max-width-re-hacked)- Begin */
width:expression(document.documentElement.clientWidth < 830 ?
"830px":"99.2%" );
/* IE Hack - End */
position:relative;
padding:5px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:left;
}

Not sure what that IE hack is, but i tried with it there and the header doesn't show up and the entry boxes are at the top, no change in width. If i remove the IE hack, the header shows up but nothing has changed.

Try changing



max-width:none;
min-width:830px;
to


width:100&#37;;

No change...

Could the problem be that its the wordpress editing system that i'm using?

Hey, i'm using firefox currently and it doesn't work on it, same for IE 7. However for the old IE it works.

I don't know then. Try looking at the Wordpress website.
