My left menu needs to go on a DIET!

Hello,

Im going nuts here trying to squeeze my left side column to 160 px. I have a 2 column layout for my "home" page, and had to choose 25-75 for grids, because that was the smallest left side column available. But 25% still makes up about 220 px, and I want that column slimmed down to 160 px, to align with the Adsense ad that I have placed underneath. (See screen shot.) So, basicly, I want more "content" space and less "left side column" space. Ive flattened the grids, but no matter what I do, the left side column wont change.

On pages where I use the 3-grid-layout, the left side menu is in perfect size. Like here. And thats the way I want it to look on my 2 grid layout as well. Not fat like this.

So if anyone can help my column loose some weight, I would really appreciate it!

Have you tried flattening the grid for the grid you like and then just removing the right side column from it?

I have flattened the grid, but it doesn't have a right side column. It's a two column 25/75 grid that I've created. I just want to set the left 25% side to 160 px and I can't find where to do that.

Hi

I do not have an answer for your grid question, I'm sorry.

I have a question, how did you move your logon from the header? I bet your going to tell me you upgraded from previous version. I have been searching days now to find info on moving all this off the header. It looks completely terrible on top of the header IMHO and should have been placed above the header or below it with options of moving it easily.

They have made it way hard to do designing IMHO

Hope you get your grid issue resolved.

Thanks
