Quick Typepad Query

Anyone know how to stretch your blog's margins to the edge of the screen (to fill it entirely)? I know there's a CSS code for it, but darned if I can find it.

I'll love you forever if you can tell me how to do it, step by step.

And by "it," I mean stretching the margins.

  1. As someone who knows nothing about HTML… when I was fiddling around with Blogger HTML, I had to change all the bits which had things like ‘column width 550px’ to ‘column width 90%’ or whatever – so, changing px settings to % settings, you can make it fill as much of the screen as you like – AND it will work on any size screen. If you Google it, there are probably full tutorials – there were for Blogger.


  2. Every time I play with the CCS/HTML code I get strange results. I did search for tutorials but maybe didn’t use the right terms because I didn’t get exactly what I was looking for. I’ll have to try again.


  3. Hi Lisa!
    We love these types of questions, or at least *I* love these types of questions. 🙂
    You can absolutely set your own column widths, either with Custom CSS or by using our Theme Builder. You get the most flexibility out of the Custom CSS feature, however, which is why I’ve opened a ticket for you!
    If you prefer keeping your Journal theme, then you’ll want to check your email for a notification that we’ve opened a ticket for you. Inside the ticket is some CSS code that I’ve come up with for you that will increase your blog’s width to 1000px!
    If you want to try the Theme Builder, you can locate it at Blog > Design > Choose New Theme > Customize > Theme Builder. We have more information here: http://help.sixapart.com/tp/us/choose_theme.html
    If you have any additional questions, just log into your account and reply to the open ticket. We’re more than happy to answer any additional questions or provide some more CSS tweaks to your column widths.
    Looking forward to chatting with you!
