    I am currently on the lifestyle theme, and the default sidebar size can only fit in 250px width. How can I increase the sidebar so that it can be at least 300px width?

    I did this locally by changing the width in the style.css file for the content-sidebar and sidebar classes:

    On line 668
    [css]
    .content-sidebar #content,
    .sidebar-content #content {
    padding: 5px 10px 20px;
    width: 550px;
    }
    [/css]
    And line 1174
    [css]
    .sidebar {
    background: #f5f5f5;
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    margin: 0 0 20px;
    padding: 15px 15px 5px;
    width: 300px;
    }
    [/css]

    Not sure if this needs to be changed but it works fine:
    [css]
    #content-sidebar-wrap {
    float: left;
    width: 700px;
    }
    [/css]

    Thank you.. this was just what I needed to make my sidebar a little wider to handle the adsense 336 ads.
