    I have changed something that is causing a small margin on each side of my “About” widget on the Modern Portfolio theme. I have used Firebug but can’t figure out what is causing it.

    You can see it here:

    Hi Angela,

    Could you provide more details? The widget wrap on your homepage is the same width as the content area, so I’m not seeing the margin you’re talking about.

    Hi and thanks for responding. On the Modern Portfolio theme on Studio Press here: http://my.studiopress.com/themes/modern-portfolio/#demo-full you will see the black section goes all the way to the left and right of the screen.

    But on mine, here: the purple stops just a few pixel at the left and right so there is white showing: http://angelaandrews.me

    I must have changed something inadvertently but can’t figure out what.

    Ah, now I see it! Sorry about that – I wasn’t looking at the purple.

    Find this section of your stylesheet:

    body {
    background-color: #fff;
    line-height: 1;
    }

    And change it to this:

    body {
    background-color: #fff;
    line-height: 1;
    margin: 0;
    }

    From what I can tell, that will allow the purple to span the entire width of the screen. Hoping that works for you!
