I've done a lot of googling on this and haven't found a satisfactory answer...
I'm trying to modify the widths of my site's layout and am having difficulty figured out the best way to do so within the Magazine Pro Theme.
Here is my site: http://www.centralsauce.com
I am particularly interested in decreasing the width of the sidebar while also increasing both the width of my body content and the padding around my body content, to give more whitespace around the body. Here is an example of a site with a layout in-line with what I'm going for: https://www.thefader.com/2019/02/07/justin-bieber-depression-xanax-vogue-hailey-baldwin
I know it's a bit complicated since I have a responsive theme. Any help is greatly appreciated.http://www.centralsauce.com
It's not complicated at all. Learn to use your browser's built-in inspection tool to visualize the elements you want to change. The CSS that controls the width will display on the right side of the screen.
In Magazine Pro, the content width is controlled by the .content class and the sidebar width is controlled by the .sidebar-primary. Together, the widths of these two elements cannot exceed the max-width set in .site-inner, .wrap
Thanks Victor, big help! I adjusted the widths per your recommendation and now my posts look great. One problem though: it's messed up my home page! Magazine pro comes with pre-set widgets for presenting your posts on the front page and they force your thumbnails into pre-set image blocks, essentially meaning that the homepage will look screwy if you decrease the content width below where it was before. But I was able to resolve this by manually changing the width on .home-middle .featured-content to fit in with the changes.
