How can I expand the standard width of a page in a premium theme? It seems to be fixed to 800px, and I don't know where to start.

This really would depend on the theme - and also might be very involved, as changing the overall width would undoubtedly have knock-on effects elsewhere. – vancoder Mar 14 '13 at 23:51

Go to Admin panel -> Layout -> Editor and find and replace all "800px" with whatever width you want. (press CTRL+F to open search in your web browser)

If he/she doesn't know where to start, this suggestion is a recipe for disaster. – vancoder Mar 15 '13 at 16:33
Well, at least it's an answer... – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Mar 17 '13 at 17:22
