    Using a single column layout, but have a stubborn page – Recent Posts – that insists on displaying as a two column – ideas to bring it into line will be appreciated!

    Many thanks

  • Unfortunately this was a design decision. I have gotten the code to solve this though:

    @media screen and (min-width: 48em) {
        .blog:not(.has-sidebar) #primary article,
        .archive:not(.page-one-column):not(.has-sidebar) #primary article,
        .search:not(.has-sidebar) #primary article,
        .navigation.pagination, .site-content .page-header,
        body.archive .site-content .page-header, .site-content .page-header {
            float: none;
            margin-left: auto;
            margin-right: auto;
            max-width: 740px;
            width: auto;

    You’re welcome 🙂

    Hello Sheriziya

    Great, I was just looking for a solution to solve this problem too !

    But as I’m not a developper or a pro of the CSS code, even though, due to some finetuning and some modifications required by the readers of our web site, I feel now quite comfortable with all the the files and their location.

    However, I don’t know which file should be modified to paste the code you offered ?

    Is that the style.css (I guess it’s as this is the most obvious to me !?) file and where exactly should I insert or modify the original code ?

    I’ve searched the style.css file with keywords but there’re many occurrences and I don’t want to break everything up !

    Thanks so much for your kind help !



    @phil49 Sorry for not responding sooner. My computer broke down.

    You can copy & paste this code into the CSS panel in the theme’s customizer. That way, when the theme gets an update, your css still remains. 🙂

    Hello Sheriziya,

    Sorry for your computer ! 🙁

    I eventually dared to paste it just after I posted the question in the CSS panel and it worked !
    I thought it had to be pasted in a specific file, because I already had to that for a specific theme !
    Thanks anyway for your answer!

    May I abuse your kindness and ask you if there’s a way to reduce the space before and after the text section for Twenty Seventeen pages ?
    For many theme this space is quite reasonable but here I find it huge, unsightly and useless!

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge,



    @phil49 Hey,

    Sorry, I haven’t looked into the space above and under the text sections, since I don’t mind it. Maybe someone else can answer this?

    Hello Sheriziya

    Thanks for your answer !

    As I DO mind, I looked desperately in some other forums dedicated to the theme Twenty Seventeen and came across an incredible guy who solved 5 problems in a row related to customization of this theme in a few minutes !

    Thanks anyway for replying.
