    I can’t remember how to change the width of a side bar.

    Hi Karen,

    Sidebars are fixed in width within the theme: you’d need to overwrite the CSS in the ‘Editor’ section. You can choose to have double sidebars, though….!

    Hi Karen – in lieu of changing the dimensions of your sidebar, you can change the dimensions of the Twitter embedded feed. The documentation is here: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines

    The other option is to change the width of the sidebars via some custom css overwrite, using Firebug. The video we watched showed that being done; the important thing to remember is that if you increase the sidebar width by (say) 5px, you need to reduce the main container (the box surrounding your main page content) by 5px as well, otherwise the resized sidebar won’t show.

    Lawrence – why are the illegitimate ones trying to grind you down?

    We discussed this on iChurch Level 3 recently, as we suspected it was nonsense-Latin. It is. According to Wikipedia, this phrase actually translates as ‘the unlawful are not carbon silicate’, which begs the question: why would Lawrence want to make note of that interesting observation in his signature…? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegitimi_non_carborundum
