    I have made a child theme and have been tweaking the CSS. Now I need to increase the overall width to 1000px and it does not seem to matter what I do I can't increase the width. The site http://tinyhousereport.com

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Hi there!

    You've made a great decision to use child themes. They are the best way to go when making any modifications.

    Have you tried this?

    .site {
      max-width: 1000px;

    It was originally set at 68.5714rem

    I hope that helps!

    how are you adding the customized styles?

    there is no 'max-width: 1000px;' to be found in your site.

    you seem to be using some caching plugin - are you flushing it after the changes?
    are you clearing the browser cache?
