Hi,
I would like to make the right sidebar wider (around 260px).
What’s the easiest way to do that?
Thanks,
Kirk.

A bit more info….
I would like all right sidebar on posts to be the same width as the Contact sidebar.
The RHS margin should be the same, but the content area a bit smaller.
So when I change pages from the Contact page to a blog post, the size of the sidebar does not change.
Thanks!

For Posts, you can edit single.php, for pages edit page.php (Appearance → Editor).

At the top you’ll see this code block which controls the sidebar/content widths:

$contentgrid = "12"; // Main Content Grid Width
$leftsidebargrid = "6"; //  Left Sidebar Grid Width
$rightsidebargrid = "6"; //  Right Sidebar Grid Width

You might want to change to:

$contentgrid = "16"; // Main Content Grid Width
$leftsidebargrid = "8"; //  Left Sidebar Grid Width
$rightsidebargrid = "8"; //  Right Sidebar Grid Width
