Support » Theme: Chaplin » .entry-content max-width value ?

  • Someone could explain to me this max-width choice?
    I don’t understand the add-value …
    Indeed, it’s in TwentyTwenty too

    
    .entry-content {
        line-height: 1.4;
        max-width: 58rem;
    }

    I have my own css now, look fare classic …

    .entry-content, .entry-content p  {
    	max-width: max-content;  
    }

    @gokhandamgaci Why did you flag this topic? Unless it’s spam, abuse or something broken in the forums please do not report topics again.

    It is not a means to get faster support, it only gets forum moderators attention and no one else.

    Because I’m the poster, and we had a rather salty exchange together, few days ago,

    call that retaliation, this @gokhandamgaci is a shame …
    He only complains, but doesn’t contribute. If he could just be a lurker…

    Uh huh. Right. That’s a lot of wrongness to unpack but I’ll do that in the other topic.

    I’m really trying to not use a parent metaphor but both of you @ljvd and @gokhandamgaci go to your respective virtual rooms and leave each other and the other person’s topics alone. Seriously.

    I’ll reply back to that other topic shortly.

    Hi @ljvd,

    The reason for the .entry-content having a set max width by default is that readability suffers if line lengths get too long. Different people will recommend different lengths, but around 9-12 words per line is a pretty common recommendation.

    For people that prefer longer lines, there’s a “Full Width” post/page template that removes the set max width from the .entry-content element.

    Sorry for the delay, thanks for the explanation. The ticket is now marked as resolved.
