Hi
how do I change the width of the main article like they have here with http://www.beautyonbelle.com/  - with the main content narrower than the menu and footer width
It's a great look  they've achieved with the template by mixing the width up

thanks Marty

You can probably do it by publishing a single blank module to the left position on the pages on which you want that effect.

I tried that but then the outline of the module appears which isnt the effect I'm after
you can see it on the link http://www.beautyonbelle.com/aboutbeautyobbelle
the transparent pic looks good and the main pages sits to the right by itself.
maybe if I published the left module could then remove the outline somehow but that sounds messy and complex

thanks anyway for the suggestion

any other ideas anyone? Johan?

If you want this width throughout the whole site you could put the following in the index.php file right before the </style> tag:

.s5_backmiddlemiddle_m {
    width:739px !important;
}

Ok so the following three DIVs are what set the width area of the main body. Its set near the top of the index.php file.  So you can edit them there.  They will have php echo code as things are being calculated to output the proper width according to left and right columns but since you arent using them you can just add in static widths

.s5_backtopmiddle_m {
    width:899px;
}

.s5_backmiddleright_m {
    width:922px;
}

.s5_backbottommiddle_m {
    width:899px;
}
