    Hi there,

    I would like to reduce the width of pages only. The blog posts display with a sidebar, which is fine. The pages have no sidebar (which I want), but it means the text stretches across the whole page and is harder to read.

    I’d like to bring the page text in a bit, but am not sure how to do this without affecting the blog layout, if that makes sense?

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Try this CSS:

    .no-sidebar .site.grid-container {
        max-width: 800px;
    }

    That is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

    Ah – that doesn’t change the pages that use sections.

    Is there a way to change these also?

    Hi there, we can use update the CSS to this:

    .no-sidebar .site.grid-container, .generate-sections-enabled:not(.home) .site.grid-container {
        max-width: 800px !important;
    }

    That doesn’t have any affect on the pages with sections.

    Also – my home page uses sections, but I don’t want that to be reduced in width – is it easy to exclude the home page?

    I edited the code above, can you try that.

    That’s reducing the width of page text, but there are two issues:

    1. It also changes the home page (which I don’t want to alter) and
    2. It reduces the background colour of the sections to an 800px width rectangle. I wanted the colour to remain at full width.

    I’ll have a play around and see if I can modify it, but if you have any other suggestions please let me know!

    Hi there,

    if you can provide a link to the site then that would be helpful, you can edit your original post and use the Site URL field for privacy.

    OK, let give this a shot, the logic: if there is no sidebar and not on a Section page then reduce the entire content width, if on a Section page that is not the home page just reduce the Sections container….

    .no-sidebar:not(.generate-sections-enabled) .site.grid-container,  .generate-sections-enabled:not(.home) .generate-sections-inside-container {
        max-width: 800px !important;
    }

    I think that’s it. All looks great.

    Thank you so much πŸ™‚
