Support » Theme: Twenty Nineteen » Content not centered

  • Resolved Gil Sousa



    I am using Twenty Nineteen and so far I am loving the simplicity of it. However, my whole website is not centered. In smaller screens this isn’t that obvious, however in wide screens you see the website on the left with a massive white space on the right.

    I tried to find a setting to change this, but it seems there is none. Am I missing something, or can I adjust this via CSS?

  • I think this is part of the design. At least it came up a couple times during development, and the answer given was that things that are right-aligned extend into that big white space. (and vice versa for RTL languages)

    For your case, in the “Additional CSS” section of the dashboard add this:

    .entry .entry-content > *, 
    .entry .entry-summary > * {
        max-width: none;

    Thanks! That helped!

    Hello @anevins

    Thanks for the CSS above.

    I am hoping to have a bit more, but equal whitespace on both sides of my content, so my content is still centered, but with more space on both the sides.

    Could you help with that?

    Thank you 🙂

    This worked for me but the primary navigation menu is still not centered and is aligned to the left.

    I have tried everything to try and fix this and center the menu.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    @wannabeeworld Adjust the percentage in the following code could change the space on both side of the centered content:

    .content-area {
    width: 80% !important;
    max-width: 80% !important;
    margin: 0 auto !important;
    float: none !important;
