    It should be set somewhere in the css.

    Just click on the editor in wordpress, try and find a width setting for the sidebar.

    #content #colRight {
    float: left;
    width: 240px;
    }

    in your style.css

    the image is included by yourself and needs to be adjusted

    Code:
    #content #colRight {
        float: left;
    
        width: 240px;
    
    
    }
    
    Reduce the width number until it fits for you.

    Thing is, you are selling PSD to XHTML and other Website Development Services and you were asking for a sidebar width..somethings not right.

    I am not using "Boldy" theme.
    But i am used to Graphene theme.
    You can see Boldy option and column width change to manually.
    if not work then you use to css code.
    thanks for share.
