Setting infoPanelWidth in Confluence

On the dashboard of Conflunece there is a variable infoPanelWidth which controls the width of the 'All Updates' & 'Favorite Spaces' tabs. Where is this controlled from? How would you reduce the size of this to 50% of page width?

I'm not sure if this variable is still in use. But if you want to reduce the size of the right column on the dashboard, you could just define a custom stylesheet in the Confluence administration console:

div.dashboard .dashboard-group.left {
	width: 50%;

div.dashboard .dashboard-group.right {
	width: 50%;

Hope this helps

If I have to create another panel with some content, how do I set?

What kind of variable are we talking about here? Is this a CSS selector or a JavaScript variable, or something else?
