chaoticsoul theme - increase sidebar width size
« on: November 15, 2007, 05:40:10 am »

Dear Forums,

I am editing the chaoticsoul theme, and I am having trouble trying to figure out how to increase the width of the sidebar.  I need to make it a 300 width.  The onlyl code I could find was {COL_WIDTH%}, but this did not help.  Anyone here know the simple answer to this? :)

Thanks!

I'm having similar problem now, that's why I decided to renew this topic, maybe somebody might help me.

I did change the content and sidebar width in style.css, the overall sum of both is same as before so the page doesn't go haywire, however there is one line, I believe some border that didn't move and I simply cannot find it anywhere.

My gallery: http://hmr6dobl2ii0.az.pl/shop/
Template: Chaoticsoul, however modified by me a bit
Plugins: lightbox, sidebar, photo cart

It was at 617px from left, and 200px from right and it just stayed there. Its very clearly seen.
I changed the width of content to 700 and the sidebar's to 117...

Any idea where I might find this line??

I get a template error so you must be working on it. I'll need to see what the issue is before I can offer a solution. You could also use Firefox and a great web development tool called Firebug to find the offending line.

That line is in the background image content_bkg.png. You'll have to edit that out (or move it) with a graphics program.

Two other things, since you are using a transparent image for the background your site doesn't look so good in IE6 (see attached view). IE6 does not handle transparent png out of the box. There are some solutions but mostly you can't use a transparent image as a background nor tile it. Just to let you know... I HATE IE!  >:( (ahh... I feel better now after that rant). Yea, I know who cares about people who are still using IE6 but if you check the Browser Statistics you'll see that 25% of the internet users still are. Until IE6 gets down into the low single digits you should serve these users. Here's a Google search on transparent png in IE6 to help you along if you care.

Second is that your diamond background image size is quite large. I've reduced it to 50kb instead of 250kb and it stills looks OK to use and this should help loading your site faster. I've attached it to this post if you care to try it.

omfg... thanks a million!! I would have never found it there... 4px speck on an image I worked on once...

thanks for the other advice too... I know the background is heavy, it was 1,2MB in the beginning  ;-) I may work on it more however its not vital for me now. Same as png compatibility in IE6, Ive known of the issue from another project way back in Joomla, and I have a solution somewhere on my drive - still the IE6 users are way down on my list as I don't care much about computer-disabled people  ;D
