Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » WP 4.7.1, twenty seventeen, one column – still 130px page content offset

    (@tekap33)


    I made a new Installation, changed only one column instead two columns at theme options.

    Still the same issue since WP 4.7 has started:

    The page content has an right offset of 130px to the header and the menu which were aligned.

    Is this the famous “works as designed” or is this an issue?

    Could you verify that you’re using version 1.1 of the theme? There was a content width issue in version 1, but it should be resolved in the latest version.

    https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/39272

    If you’re still seeing the issue, please provide a link to a page on your site where the issue is visible.

    This problem was unfortunately not solved. I’ve just tested it on my author site by disabling the custom CSS I had enabled to fix that problem and suddenly the content has a rather big off set again.

    @sheriziya I haven’t been able to replicate this issue on my test site so far. I selected the One-Column layout in the Customizer, added a new page with some text and a right-aligned image, and don’t see any unexpected “offset” or horizontal scrolling.

    Could you try creating a fresh page from scratch and let me know how it goes?

    If you temporarily turn off all your plugins, do you still see the issue?

    Creating new page from scratch: same result
    Turning off all plugins: same result

    @sheriziya Using my browser inspector, I removed this element and the horizontal scrolling/offset disappeared:

    <div id="sfsi_plus_floater" class="sfsiplus_norm_row sfsi_plus_wDiv" style="z-index: 9999; width: 150px; text-align: left; position: absolute; right: 10px; top: 353px;" data-top="1601">

    I’m not sure what that element is supposed to be doing, but it seems to be causing the issue.

    Would you mind deactivating the plugin that’s injecting that element — seems to be Ultimate Social Media Plus — and then letting me take another look to see if the element and scrolling are gone? If you have any caching software running, be sure to turn that off also.

    Well, earlier I had, per your request, deactivated ALL plugins (including the Social media plugin) and it didn’t make a difference.

    Also, the Social media plugin is a plugin I installed after I had already discovered this problem…..

    But I’ll deactivate the plugin again.

    I have no caching software running

    I understand, but I’d be interested to see it hands-on, since removing that element did fix the issue for me on this end. Thanks for indulging me. 🙂 Please let me know when it’s deactivated and keep it deactivated so I can take a look. Thanks!

    I’ve done it already 🙂

    For me the off set still shows, despite a hard refresh and all. 🙁

    Thanks for looking into it!

    Hmm – I’m no longer seeing the scrolling/offset at my end now, which seems to confirm my theory about this plugin being the culprit. Here’s what it looks like here – no more horizontal scrolling:

    Can you try:

    – looking at your site in a different browser, ideally where you’ve never loaded the site before
    – clear your browser’s cache

    @kathryn
    Hello,
    I verified version 1.1 of seventeen twenty.
    It should be normal when I download WordPress 4.7.1.
    My test installation is an xampp installation

    Just for you I did a new installation:
    – download WP 4.7.1
    – upload to server
    – startspage remains static page
    – change from two colums to one column

    Noothing else!

    Same result!

    See: http://wptest.wptop.de

    In real installations I fixed it with a child style.css

    .page-one-column .panel-content .wrap {
    max-width: 1000px;
    }

    .single-post:not(.has-sidebar) #primary, .page.page-one-column:not(.twentyseventeen-front-page) #primary, .archive.page-one-column:not(.has-sidebar) .page-header, .archive.page-one-column:not(.has-sidebar) #primary {
    max-width: 1000px;
    border-right: 500px;
    }

    @tekap33 thanks for setting up the test install for me and for providing that custom CSS so I can better understand the issue.

    The slight text indentation when using a single-column layout is how Twenty Seventeen was designed, to reduce the line length for better readability when the single-column layout is selected.

    @sheriziya If that text right- and left-hand text indentation is what you’re referring to, then try the custom CSS tekap33 provided above to eliminate it. I thought you were referring to the horizontal scrolling I was seeing on your site, which is what was eliminated when removing that plugin.

    Hi Kathryn,

    I presumed that it “works as designed” but I refused to believe it. :))

    “Works as designed” is a running gag since the “early software age”, when you discover an issue and nobody knows wherefrom and why.

    Maybe it’s a sponsering of all ophthalmologists and opticians together. :))

    Who knows?

    Thank you to look at it.

    @@zoonini, I was indeed referring, like @tekap33, to the text, not the horizontal scrolling, which, btw I didn’t see. Thanks for noticing that.

    I didn’t know TwentySeventeen was explicitly designed like that, text wise. The text is something I already solved with mostly the same CSS as @tekap33 used. 🙂

    BTW, personally I fail to see how this “slight” indentation improves readability. For me personally, I’m distracted by the fact that the page text does not, at all, line up with the menu. It’s like there’s supposed to be something on the left, where there isn’t.
    But that’s maybe something entirely personal.

    I totally get it. 🙂 Some of us find it disconcerting when elements don’t line up visually.

    Typography guidelines for the web generally recommend 50-75 characters per line as optimal for ease of reading, though there is debate about the exact number. Here are some articles you can read if you’re super interested. 😉

    http://baymard.com/blog/line-length-readability – this one explains the problem with wider blocks of text well:

    If a line of text is too long the reader’s eyes will have a hard time focusing on the text. This is because the line length makes it difficult to gauge where the line starts and ends. Furthermore it can be difficult to continue onto the correct line in large blocks of text.

    https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2014/09/balancing-line-length-font-size-responsive-web-design/

    Of course, you’re welcome to modify your own sites as you wish, that’s the beauty of custom CSS.

    Marking this thread as resolved!
