    Hi all. Really like the look and feel of the Ahimsa theme, but Ireally need to make it fixed-width. Currently it sizes to the browser width, which is simply too wide on larger monitors with higher resolutions.

    Has anyone been able to make it fixed-width? I'm thinking in the neighborhood of 960px.

    I'm using Ahimsa 2.2 on a WordPress 2.7.1 install.

    Please let me know if you need me to post files or code...

    The site I'm working on is:

    Currently it sizes to the browser width, which is simply too wide on larger monitors with higher resolutions.

    As someone who's 17" screen's been running at 1280 by 1024 rez and is fed up with the tiny fonts most designers use in their fixed-width themes, here's two more suggestions:

    Reduce the size of the window to the width that makes reading easier. That is, after all, one of the reasons for fluid-width themes. Not everyone is using uber high rez monitors. My alter ego runs two fanfiction sites and Ahimsa has been the perfect theme for both because she doesn't have to fart around with the font size (which is the other suggestion). Readers can easily adjust the page to suit their needs.

    Dennybot, if bsutcliffe's answer doesn't work, and if you already haven't done so, can you write to me at code [at] ahren [dot] org, and I will give you some pointers that might help. I will also try to remember to post back an answer here.
