    How can I widen the sidebar area without narrowing the content?

    I have searched this forum (and Google), but all I can find is tips on how to resize the sidebar without changing the overall width. But I don’t want it to cost me content width.
    I have found that I can adjust the width of the #wrap { , for example from 960 to 1000, but then I lose the right-side margin between the sidebar and the wrap, so I need to change other factors as well. I just can’t seem to figure out which ones.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you increase your #wrap to 1000 and increase your sidebar from 280 to 320 will that achieve what you want.

    At line 1092 change to:

    .sidebar {
        display: inline;
        float: right;
        font-size: 14px;
        width: 320px;

    Thanks for your answer, Eamon!

    I first thought nothing changed if I did that, but I forgot to clear my cache before checking the results. Beginners-mistake…….
