On my home page I use Sections but I cannot seem to make the outer or inner container of sections full width.
It seems that the following settings do nothing:
‘Box type – whether your outer section container is full width or contained.
Inner box type – whether your inner section container is full width or contained.’
Presumably I’ve done something wrong. I’d be grateful if you could let me know.

Can you guide me to the page where the issue can be seen?
Also I would highly recommend using our new favorite block plugin GenerateBlocks over Sections:
It’s the replacement for Sections and offers much more awesome options and flexibility.
Let me know 🙂June 3, 2020 at 11:10 am #1313025Oliver

This page may be easiest to see what the issue is: https://fetliu.net/delete/

But this is the page I’m actually trying to fix: https://fetliu.net/ I want to make the background colours (you’ll need to scroll down the page to see them) the full width of the page.

No sidebar now on https://fetliu.net/delete/ but still the same.June 3, 2020 at 1:46 pm #1313193LeoStaffCustomer Support
Do you have a layout element created that’s setting the content container width to 1480px?

Looking with Google Inspect when I click onit has this under styles:
If I toggle off the max-width in Google Inspect it seems to fix the problem. I’ve no idea where the 1480px comes from but presumably it’s from the theme or WP Show Posts. Nor do I know how to get rid of it, if it is what’s causing problem, as I’m about at the limit of my css skills.
Can you help any further?

Have you checked the layout element as I mentioned here?

Apologies, I managed to miss your last message before my last reply.
The layout element was exactly the problem. It all makes sense now.
Thank you very much for your help!
