Expanding “item-body” in profile pages?

    Hello all! I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to expand the area of my sites profile where all of the members info is kept. I remover the sidebar of these pages and would like to make the content area less cramped but not sure how to do this without editing the style sheet and changing the look of my entire site. Sorry if this is an elementary question but I’m pretty green to a lot of this still. Any help tossed my way would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    == I remover the sidebar of these pages and would like to make the content area less cramped but not sure how to do this without editing the style sheet and changing the look of my entire site ==

    Just to clarify, you mentioned that you deleted the sidebar from the template files of the profile pages, which template files did you edit?

    Re editing stylesheet – you would need to add change in style for only those pages. Using firebug, you can ID the profile pages and use the body.class selector to expand width of content are for the pages you want to implement changes on.

    trouble is there isn’t a useful distinct class token for profile pages , I went through some changes to the class array a while back with Paul, but this should have been better catered for at the moment there is only ‘my-account’ but nothing that distinguishes a general profile/account view.
    You may need to add a class or id to /members/single/home.php on the highest element that exists in the structure which should be ‘content’

    * I took them out of the members/single/home.php.

    * Thank you for the suggestion, I will try this out tonight!

    I’m sorry but upon trying to tackle this i realize how much of a noob I really am at all this. How would I go about adding a class or id? I looked around but only got confused. Any help would REALLY be great!

    Try opening /members/single/home.php and to the element `

    ` add a class `

    OK, so I’m sure I’m just a flippin moron but I can’t get this to work. Where am I supposed to put the style changes “.member-account .padder {margin-right: 0;}”? I tried adding it to my style.css but that did nothing. I then put it in my layout.css and still nothing. Sorry i’m THICK HEADED! Thank you for your patience and help.
