    In your template folder find the folder titled css.

    now open the main css file, stylesheet.css

    Under body add the following before the last )

    width: 1024px;

    or you can set it for 800px if you want it even tighter. But I like bigger type so I feel that 800 is too thin for me. It works great if you're only going to use one side for boxes though.

    WAIT THATS WRONG!!!!

    I looked at your thumbnail. width has nothing to do with that. sorry.

    I think what you need is margins, or padding. But I'm not sure about that. I'll let you know if I figure it out. I have the opposite problem with some of my product thumbnails. Their practically touching.

    Thank you very much for your help. Please let me know once you have found it, I've spent several hours and still can not find it....

    It would be easier if we had a link to the actual site, but check the setting for this:

    Code:
    .centerBoxHeading {
    	margin: .0em;
    	background-color: #F0F8FF;
    	padding: 0.5em 0.2em;
    	}
    That might be one of the padding values that needs to be changed.

    Actually this one is easy...

    Go into your tool>define pages editor
    Then choose html from the right drop down
    Then choose main page from the left drop down

    Put your cursor in front of the first letter of the first sentence and hit your backspace button about 6 times...

    Then put your cursor after the last letter of the last sentence and hit the delete key about 6 times...

    Save

    Refresh your store and see if that did the trick...

    Zen cart pads those text boxes for some reason... but this worked for me...

    Good luck!
