Padding left and right of the content area

Recommended Posts



I am not sure if i will explain this correctly, but what i want to do is allow for a bit of space on either side of the content area so that when a browser is narrowed or viewd on a smaller screen, the text and images are not right up against the edge of the browser.


I have tried to make the section column width 10/12 and then make the offset 1 so there is equal space, but the column width is so big that it makes the space on either side 108pixels and i want it closer to 65pixels wide.



What is the best way to do this?


will it work to do this or will it push things out of alignment?

.pl-inner {
padding: 0 55px;

Thank you.

A quick update - if i do the above, then it actually just pushes the section (in this case the WP content loop) over to the right.

This yields a better result - but i am not sure if it is the best way.

.pl-inner {
  margin: 0 auto;

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
