I'm sure this probably has to do with the new stuff Aaron has introduced. I logged in today to find my guild site spread across my screen but it's set to 950 pixels centered. I tried resetting it, changing the settings and then going back to the 950 but no joy. I also tried to see if maybe my columns are forcing it to be wide but I can't seem to find where to set column width.

Here's the site: http://www.dragonfyre.net. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi Maevealleine!

Just go to Control Panel >  Site Style > Site-Wide Style > Site Layout tab, then enter "950px" into the "Content Area Width" box.

Save and reload your web page.

That should still work... if not post here please

Is there a better name I can assign that field to make it a bit more intuitive?  I remember staring at that thing for a very, very long time trying to think of one that would make sense at first glance.  'Course, being a programmer, that's got to be one of the hardest parts of the job!

Overall-all-encompassing-supercalifragilistic-site-content-width or "Overall content width" for short?

Thanks Mottie!

I hadn't used the "px" at the end.

Aaron: please describe in that section how people have to word percentage vs. pixels!
