Hi guys, first day playing with b2evolution. I am trying to make a blog to keep track of announcements on the website for a fundraiser I am planning. I haven't even figured out the main layout of the site, but I am getting there as far as this blog goes. here is the link http://lockedupsdsu.com/news/ could somebody please go there and notice the big white box on the right side of the page and explain to me how I can get rid of that? Also, if anybody wants to help me figure out the best way to create the main web site would really really be appreciated. Thanks! Blake

the big white box? you mean the sidebar? you dont want the sidebar there? just edit your skin's _main.php.

yeah, the sidebar. I am having a hard time figuring out how to change it. all I really want to do is make it so it doesnt stand out so much

i can access that css, I'm just trying to figure out what to change in it. I don't have a knowledge of html so it's kind of daunting at this point

if you look at your skin's _main.php AND/OR look at the source of your page, you will see that the CSS definition thats controling that sidebar starts with :
<div id="menu">

Now, go look at your CSS.. read that site, and figure out what you want to change and go for it. The very worst that will happen is that you end up having to re-upload a few files if you hose something up. The best that can happen is that you will learn.

exkido - What browser are you using? If you haven't tried FireFox, I HIGHLY suggest you do. Why? Because there is a "web developer" extension that you can add on that allows you to edit the CSS and SEE the effect - real-time, live.

You don't have to worry about messing things up, either. If you do, just refresh the page & you'll get the ORIGINAL CSS back.

Like your changes? Great! Hit the SAVE button & save them.

When you're learning CSS, there isn't a better tool (IMO).

Also check out the W3 Schools free CSS tutorial. They have online examples that you can change, hit a button, see the effect:
