XF 1.3 Align fixed width style left from center

    We am currently experimenting with a forum design with an all left sidebar of 320px in width and a main part of 660px

    For my last tweak I need your help as I am not sure if I am doing the right thing.

    What I'd like to achieve is to align the fixed width layout a tiny bit left from the center (the normal fixed width position like here on XF.com). Lets say a bit like Facebook does it: the left sidebar is present yet the focus of the user is still on the center of the screen where the main part is.

    I can re-create the effect by adding 18% to the left margin of the page width controller or around 25% to the right.

    Is this the correct way of doing this?

    Both here and Facebook actually use margin: 0 auto.

    You can however just do as you suggested - margin: 0 18% 0 25%

    The result is this:

    Thanks Brogan!

    Now I only need to find a way to create a cool status update widget that runs off of the page and we have a RaceBook :)
