    Hi Myles and thank you for responding so quickly!

    The theme I’m referring to is Magnus, I thought this was the support forum for that theme specifically, so I didn’t specify as I thought it was understood.

    I am currently testing the theme locally, but you can check it out here
    http://magnus.thefivethemes.com/2015/05/14/magnus-maximus/
    that’s a post page, and what I want to do is get rid of those margins/padding on the sides for all the posts [change the post template I suppose], so that the text/pictures/etc can go all the way full-width across the page.

    I do like the sidebar, so I don’t want to remove it like people suggest for other themes, and it isn’t an issue as it just overlaps when it appears.

    Please let me know if you need further info.

    Hi @kosmikk,

    You can do that with CSS, but I don’t know why you’d want to… The theme was designed for great readability, and that involves having the right balance of line width and height for that typeface size. Wider lines makes it really hard to read.

    The main container has a max-width set, if you change that value you’ll likely achieve what you desire. I have’t spent much time on this, but would be something like:

    .content-area {
        max-width: 100%;
    }

    Add this in some custom CSS plugin, don’t actually edit the theme files, as they’ll get overwritten when I release updates to the theme. You can find recommendations on that in other posts on the Magnus support threads.

    Hope this helps. Cheers!
