[resolved] Changing container width - a true challenge! (15 posts)

    Hi there,
    It probably sounds weird but I've been trying for about 2 days to change the width of my container. All the help I can find on the internet considers changing stuff in the style.css. Custom Community's style sheet is abviously different and there's pretty much nothing in it.
    Can anyone give a rookie like me an idea?

    It did! But I actually wanted to shrink it and now its stuck on the right side. How can I centralise it?

    Ok this was a stupid question. I only had to add - margin:0 auto; - after the width.
    Thank you very much Full Circle! You got me out of tons of trouble!

    Hi ! Yes, it works as long as your % is <100
    for 120% the container goes to the right ...
    anyway you solved my problem : I put 120% to the container, footer and header and it goes !
    many thanks

    @iazonata @smartshot

    You can change the width of the whole website in the THEME SETTINGS.

    Go to APPEARANCE -> THEME SETTINGS (if you didn't yet).

    The checkout the GENERAL tab, there you will find a block of options like for the website width, container settings, typography and A LOT more ;)

    The CSS tab is the absolute correct way, yes. Never change theme files as all your changes will be lost when updating.

    Use the CSS tab for CSS, as soon you'd like to change more in the PHP, the proper way to go is creating a child theme.

    @smartshot - 120% for the container means it "should" be 120% of your display width, that is not good actually. Always stay below 100%.

    @anietienkana, do you use CC version 1.10 and WP 3.5?
    In this case, please update from the latest Github version and check if the error still exists.

    CC free 1.11 @Github - https://github.com/Themekraft/Custom-Community/

    You can even switch to responsive mode now and have Custom Community responsive!

    The update is submitted to the WP review team already and should be available here very soon, too.

    ** Note: unfortunately we just noticed some new bugs that came from adding responsive features. We're working on it and a fix is already on the way. So take care changing things that affect the content width with the new version until the fix is available..

    Hope this helps.. :) Konrad

    hi sharc316,

    if responsive mode is enabled the website and sidebar width are handled fully automatically..

    to customize the width for all elements, just go to
    THEME SETTINGS -> GENERAL -> RESPONSIVE
    and set it to "Disabled"

    Then the options for the website width pop up again,
    hope this helps, Konrad
