How to widen the entire template

Featured Lock Resolved
Greetings everyone!

I recently became an admin of a site using this template and the 960px width is quite limiting considering that nowadays most monitors are widescreen.

I'm interested to know how to widen the entire template to a size over 1000px, possibly around 1100px without screwing up the page contents.
I want the main content(article) area to be wider.

I looked into the html and css files and I noticed that the grids.css sp-container has the initial value of 960px but changing it just widens the content area(check the circles on the picture)

I'm interested to know where do I change the header, footer, background shadow and the rows inside of the content area.

If someone could let me know what exactly I need to change to make this work it would be very much appreciated

I attached a picture of what I had in mind, I hope its understandable xD

From admin panel from "extensions->template managers->shaper_Simplicity - II - Default" . You will find "Main Body Width" Just put your desire width .

I do not have the default option

The website is under Joomla 1.5.26.

Is the template updateable or would I need to have Joomla 2.5?

Okay I have opened a subdomain and installed Joomla 2.5 on it with this template.

When I attempt to widen it, I get this - LINK TO PICTURE

I entered the .css files and I can't seem to find the option to widen the actual template.

What do?
