I am new to CiviCRM environment.

My company asked me if I could modify the website to not have so much blank space (white space) on the sides. They want more content on the screen.

Please excuse my terminology. I am still learning the CRM terminology via Market Research.

Where could I find the CSS to modify this portion?

Is there a standard directory set up for CiviCRM?

Is it best practice to set a new CiviCRM for each project?

Thank you in advance.


  • Which CMS are you using? Drupal/WordPress/Joomla ? You can tweak the CSS but you may find just choosing a different theme does what you need

I'd agree with trying the theme suggestion in the above comment, but if you do want to change css I would use "extras.css". See the hilited box on this page: https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Resource+URLs

"You can also define additional CSS styles to be applied to all or specific page elements by adding CSS styles to the 'extra CSS' file: css/extras.css. This file is included in the downloaded code, but is empty by default."

It's difficult to answer the other questions because they're a little too general.
