    Hello,

    Just wondering what is the recommended width resolution for a magazine website or blog? Because I see some sites with 900px or 1024px or 1124px or 1224px?

    Thanks!

    Hi Sara,

    This is really all personal preference and depends on your content container width.

    Hello Leo,

    I understand that but, usually what is standard measurement or your recommendation? And also how can I make website fullwidth like you have it in generate press?

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    think about the number of columns you want to display on your Archives. And decide upon the minimum width you want them displayed. A minimum column width should be around 320px as this is the average size of a Mobile display, and around a maximum of 360px.

    For more columns use the smaller size eg.
    3 x Post columns + 25% sidebar would be 4 x 320px = 1280px container width.
    2 x Post Columns + 30% sidebar would be 3 x 360px = 1080px container width.

    For the single post – the content width may be too large if you’re using those settings. But you can reduce the width using a Layout Element to say 960px for better reading widths.

    To create a full width page you can use the Page Builder Container:

    I am thinking of doing homepage and categories pages with no sidebar so make it 3 post columns and 2 post columns mixing it. So, I was thinking doing it 1024px width or max 1180px. But, my doubt is doesnt look very small this resolution on a mac computer hd?

    Thanks!

    This is really all personal reference unfortunately.

    It could be for some people but other people might like it.
