[resolved] [Twenty Eleven] site width changes unexpectedly (5 posts)

    this is my second post about this.

    when i install the default template it looks fine. then i create a page and make some basic modifications like choosing the dark background and deleting pre-loaded posts and pages that are examples. then the width gets much smaller. i am not doing much of anything other than basic stuff.

    here's the site

    http://dirtbagchallenge.com/dbcwordpress/

    default theme with original width:

    i have installed wp 4 times in 4 days now, assuming that i was doing something wrong. i hope someone can tell me what i'm doing wrong.

    thanks!

    tried this and it didn't change anything. this was the post

    I would venture a guess that if you changed the max-width here to just width
    #page {
    margin: 2em auto;
    max-width: 1000px;
    }
    nothing would scale...

    i went into the style.css file of the child theme and removed the word "mas-" from in front of the word "width" since that's what i guessed those directions meant. the width is still shorter.

    any ideas? did i do this correctly?

    if you set the site to 'one column, no sidebar', the width is narrowed by design.

    the width (and appearance) will also change with narrower browser windows - that is a feature of the theme.

    i answered that already http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-change-width-of-twentyeleven-theme?replies=10#post-2229388

    please read and apply the suggestions made.

    you made a copy of the theme, instead of creating a child theme - that is fine.

    oh thank you!

    regarding making a copy, i still need to read about why that's different than a child theme. i thought they were the same.

    thanks you thank you!

    :)
