How can I change the footer's width? So its as big as the content/header and doesnt spread on the whole page? I read something with #footcols .content But where do I change that? Thanks in advance.

Please at least get set up with Firebug:

sorry but that link isn't helpful because it doesn't show the site :( You probably just want to match the background color on this selector `#footer {}` and the main page color on this selector `#footer .content {}`

I can't seem to figure the footer column width issue either. I use Firebug and have found Chrome's developer tools handy as well. I'm sure it's just education on my part trying to figure out where to change these css selectors. I've tried putting stuff in the <>custom code and that doesn't seem to work exactly.

the css can be changed in the base.css file if you are using PlatformBase- and you should.

ok, I added platformbase and that seems to help in specificity. One more quick question- I'm having issues styling the posts page and elements on that page. I've scanned the forums and have trreid all of the options- .blog, posts-page, page-id 57 and none seem to work. Am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

I'm trying to change a number of things including sidebar attributes, post title font sizes and type. I also want to be able to change attributes on single post pages.

Most CSS items that are being overridden by default styles can be fixed by adding `body` (+ a space) to the front of the selector. Most type issues are controlled by the dynamic css file and may have some very specific selectors applied. Best bet is to dig in with FireBug and look at where the style originates from so you know how to "trump" it.
