    Hey Tom. Long time no see.

    I’m having an issue with the full width sections yet again.

    There are box types contained vs fluid in the secion options but they don’t affect the website at all ! I’m not sure what they do but it used to work, I can recall that everytime I try to make a full width website I can’t seem to get it to work. I’ve tryed the exact same CSS on old websites I managed to do it on and it won’t work on the new versions of GP.

    Must I set the grid-container to both width 100% ( this only affects sections ) and max width 100% ( this only affects the footer section )

    Shouldn’t flyid box type make it full width ?

    Hi Adrian,

    Hmm, using it here on this website with no issues.

    Can you link me to the site possibly?

    I can recall having this issue multiple times, on different installs.

    decorpets dot com / ?page_id=32

    As you can see I’ve created a section with red background color and both box types set on fluid and there is the white space in the div with id page and classes hfeed site grid-container container grid-parent.

    I know I can just fix with CSS but I though fluid outer box will make it full width.

    Ah, you have a plugin loading bootstrap which is adding a width to the container.

    If bootstrap is going to be loaded via a plugin, you need to add some code to remove the width it adds:

    .container {
        width: auto;
    }

    Heh I apologize for not thinking of this Tom ! Thanks a lot, I’ve just disabled the plugin.

    No problem! I’ll see if it’s something I can add into core without messing anything else up 🙂

    Yeah I have a little batch of plugins that I use to make every kind of website possible. Like shortcodes ultimate and animate .css, stuff like that.

    I’m also looking into making different colors and background on each main category.

    All these kinds of things could make GP really powerful but the thing is it also adds weight to it.

    It’s tough to find a balance between lots of functionality and not weighing the theme down – constant battle! 🙂

    Are plugins different ? This way people can select. Is GP premium as heavy with most addons off as it is when they are all on ? Or does disabling them make it relatively lighter ?

    The add-ons basically are plugins, but I do my best to keep them as light as possible.

    GP without any add-ons is stupidly light. However, even with all of the add-ons activated it’s still way lighter than most premium themes out there.

    Would like a huge server make things easier/faster ? Like all the sites getting their files from one master paid service server instead of their own ?

    Not really – you just typically don’t want too much to have to load every time you load a page, which is why those massive multi purpose themes out there can be a bad idea as 90% of the things loading every page load aren’t being used.

    That’s why I went modular with GP Premium – only activate what you’re going to use 🙂

    Yeah well the best idea is to have an unique custom lightweight theme for every website. This is easy if you manage one website, but with 100 it gets pretty expensive fast 🙂
