    Hi,

    My website is centered on the computer screen and there is a space to the left and right side.  The line above the footer and for the custom menu extends to the edge of the screen.  I would like to put a border around the webpage or a light grey panel on both sides- something simple, that I can do using my child themes style.css file.  I have spent time looking for a way to do this.

    Thank You

    For color either side place a background on the body and then you will need to place white (or whatever on the wrapper division:

    body { background: #e8e8e8; /* Your background color here */ }
    #wrapper { background: #fff; }

    And for your border, place it on wrapper, for example:

    #wrapper { border: 2px solid #333; }

    Hi,

    Thank you again for the help.

    I had put code in my child themes function.php and style.css file to add a widget to the right in the theme head. At another time I added additional code to the style .css that I use to change the height of the theme head and width of the container.  Now I have added additional code. The code put in at three different times works together  (allegany county).  I would like to post the code here to see if there is a way everything could work off a center line (the container location is where it should be) so the webpage is centered on all size monitors.

    Thank You
    Jerry
