[resolved] Changing Default Theme to Fluid Width? (3 posts)

    Hi - I am considering changing my theme to fluid width.
    Not sure if this is a good idea but, if I chose to do so, could someone point me in the right direction? I've searched on codex with no luck. Looking for a basic step-by-step. I'm a newbie to HTML and CSS.
    Thank you!
    (sorry if duplicate post...I tried to post earlier and it appears to have vanished??)

    You'd have to more or less rewrite the whole of Kubrick. It has "narrowcolumn" and "widecolumn" classes you'd have to take out of the templates as well as hard coded images you'd have to strip from the CSS. Kubrick is set up with fixed width images that span the whole page with no provision to stretch them.

    It would be quicker to create a new theme from a blank template and put a Kubrick like header on it!

    Don't get me wrong, you can edit Kubrick easily so long as you strip the images (see my blog for example) but I wouldn't ever attempt to make it fluid!

    Thanks! I was worried that it would be a bigger chore than I was willing to undertake. I think I'll stick with the wider fixed width I've got going now. Thanks again
