    Hi,

    I currently have the eleven40 theme. My Primary sidebar is at 260px. But when i increase the width to 300px the whole sidebar just turns blank and all the widgets disappear. Here is what it currently looks like:
    .sidebar {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    font-size: 14px;
    padding: 25px 0 0;
    width: 260px;
    }
    Anyone have a fix to this, or know how i can make my sidebar wider so i insert a larger ad unit (300×250)?

    Thanks!

    I’m thinking it doesn’t go blank, it just falls below the content area because there’s not enough room for it.  If you scroll down, you’ll probably see the sidebar down below.

    If you want to make the sidebar wider, you’ll have to make the #content area more narrow.  Everything together must not exceed the total width of the #wrap (or #inner depending upon how you’ve got things set up).  If you post a link to your site, we can help you figure it out.

    Hi, I was trying to do the same thing as the original poster (change primary sidebar to 300 width) and I fear I messed up my site. I made the adjustments but now with I change my browser width the sidebar pops to the bottom. Site is: http://www.triphackers.com. Help?!?

    Thank you!!

    Ellen.
