I am running the Genesis Framework and was curious to know how I can resize my sidebar to ensure that 300×250 ads can fit properly without being cut off.
I think the easiest way is to choose a theme that has a minimum 300 width for side bar. Not much coding help but some themes, for whatever reason, is not 300×250 friendly. So odd because even two 150×150 small banners would need more than 300 pixels wide.
I think you’ll find its already big enough otherwise you can use CSS in your child themes style.css file:
You’ll need to allow for the default padding.

Hey Brad, thanks for chiming in. During my testing, some themes would automatically shrink a 300×250 banner (proportionally) to fit inside the sidebar. I do not remember which theme it was that I tested adjusting CSS but I remember it caused some issues in the footer once I adjusted the .sidebar setting. Was a mess. Uninstalled that theme and never looked back. Let’s hope SP designers understand the standard 300×250 banner creatives need to fit nicely and un-touched inside the sidebar. Large advertisers and agencies would never let their creatives be altered.
