sidebar in the documentation theme - I want to set the default width to a different value

Hi All,

Does anyone have any idea on how to set the default split width of the documentation theme side bar? The default width is very large, and I was wondering if I could use a modified CSS styles to override the default setting.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

PS: Confluence seems to be using the jQuery splitter plugin which would imply that changing the default size should be possible via CSS.

Hi, I found a similar answer in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/28155/documentation-theme-default-width-in-px-of-left-panel

The CSS for this is (it defines a min width, but do note that the browser cookies saves your last setting):

#splitter #splitter-sidebar {  

   min-width: 300px;  

}
