[resolved] Changing the width of the site (6 posts)

    I like the Hueman theme very much but I need to make it more suitable for me and the content I have on my old website. This means that I need to make the width of the site 1000px. In the theme option I only can go down to 1024px. I saw that I could change this in the theme-option.php file but when I make a copy of that file and make the changes it won't work. I work with a child theme and every php-file I've made changes to I made a copy to my child theme. What am I doing wrong? Is it that It's a copy with the exact text in it besides the small changes I made? What kind of text line should I have in the php-file if that is the case.

    Best Regards Ulrica

    Without seeing the site you can try this at the bottom of your childs style.css.

    body {
        max-width: 1000px;
        margin: 0 auto;  /*MAY NOT BE NEEDED*/

    .container-inner { max-width: 1000px; }

    That is the value that the admin panel styling options changes.

    Hi again.

    That did not work.
    What does work is to change the container width from 1024 to 1000 in the "theme-options.php". But when I copied that .php-file to my child theme and made the change it did not work. Is that .php-file a file I can't copy so it works in my child theme? I don't want to make that change every time I upgrade the theme.

    (Styling: Container Width 'min_max_step' => '1000,1600,1')

    In functions.php, copy over the whole

    function alx_load() {

    Function to your child theme's functions.php. Then change this line in it:

    load_template( get_template_directory() . '/functions/theme-options.php' );


    load_template( get_stylesheet_directory() . '/functions/theme-options.php' );

    And it will load that file from the child theme instead.

    Something is wrong when I copied the text you said. Something got broken. I got a lot of warnings and errors.
