    Hi, I’m very new to wordpress, need guidance.
    I posted a message in another support blog, then discovered this one, specific to the Crisp theme. Not sure if the other message will be duplicated here.
    1. Want to increase the width of the page to full screen, or at least wider than it is now.
    2. Also would like the gallery widget to display in a wider space than the sidebar (very small).
    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hi!

    I’m afraid, there isn’t really an easy way to do this, without extensive css customizations.

    Unfortunately, while I would like to help you here, it’s a bit beyond what I’m able to help you with.

    I do hope to help point you in the right direction though.

    You could look into getting familiar with Firebug or Chrome/Safari inspect. There are some good tutorials on Google which might be worth looking into and getting familiar with CSS and these custom changes.

    Hello,
    Thanks for your response. Sounds like I’ll have to do some css customizations. At the least, would you know what I’d need to do to increase the width of the page?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    another question:
    3. is there any way to only have the sidebar widgets on the first page & not on all pages?

    I went back to look at some of the other questions in this forum. One was from Aug 13, 2013 asking similar question (titled Layout). I have purchased Customization. So, is there a way to answer the question about layout/widening the page? Thanks so much for your help!

    1) You can use the following code as a starting point:

    .col-full {
         width: 1000px;
    }

    3) You can hide them with css ( however this is just a work-around ).

    WordPress.com isn’t suppose to cater for such advanced customizations. ( You can see that the list of plugins is quite short: http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ ).

    For more advanced projects you should check out the “self-hosted” version of WordPress: https://wordpress.org/

    That said, here’s the css work-around:

    #sidebar {
         display: none;
    }
    
    .home #sidebar {
        display: block;
    }

    Hello Daniel,
    Thanks for your response. Someone else also suggested I look at wordpress.org. I’ll look into that if I can’t make this work. Meanwhile, I appreciate your help! Thanks so much.
