From the document page:

Tip: If you want to change forum and sidebar widths you can use this simple CSS code. Just put it in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > “Custom CSS Code” textarea, the save it, delete all caches and do Ctrl+F5 on front end to load new CSS code:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-content{ width: 73%; }
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-right-sidebar { width: 24%;}

Thank you for the explanation, I was asking in past exactly that, and looks like you're listening.

If I may, I need further info:

1. How do I find the total page width? I want to set it up 3/4 content and 1/4 sidebar. Well, I know some math and can calculate, but if I know the page width I may be able to stretch it a little bit more with narrower boarders.  

2. What is the padding width?

Thanx again.

Followup -

I was trying to set it to 78, 19 and Worfence blocked me.

What is the URL that I need to add to the whitelist?

[I think that it is Wordfence issue, it start popping up since their latest release with other plugins] 

Thank you

update

Temporary, disable Wordfence, applied the changes and it works

I'm sorry but we don't support issues with Wordfence , we don't know the working logic.

All URLs are on address bar, you ca use them.

You don't need total page width, the CSS code is based on percents. For example 1/4 is the 25% /75%.

2. What is the padding width?

I don't know, you should check it on your website using firebug or so...

Thank you,

Looks like on the new site to be the live, Woedfence is yet in "learning mode" and it allowed me to make the changes while in the older tests system it was locked out, but as I said, i disabled temporary,  apply the change and reactivate.

Thanx
