  • 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!

    – Luke


    I tried that Luke – no go.

    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?

    I got it!

    Thanks guys for the help!!!!
