Hi, can anyone help me to change blackcandy to a variable width theme?

I love this theme, but I don't like it being fixed width. I'm not an IT guy so I can't do it all myself. However, if someone here can suggest some steps, I can change css of course.

Any help willbe appreciated.

It's not too difficult but sadly not as easy as changing 800px to 80%

The easy part is the css to change the width of BgContainer, Container, Header, Navigation, Layout & Footer. The tricky part is making the curved background images work with a variable width theme, you'll need to chop the images up and add some extra markup.

There's no quick fix I'm afraid.

I sopke to a friend who is a web-designer. He said will do it in a couple of days as soon as he found some free time. Will be great help. I will post the converted theme on the site so that others may also benefit from it.
