Hello 

 

So I have tried and tried and tried all of the setting, I even played around with the CSS but NOTHING works! My forum is just small in width... it's not even full screen. (See attached picture)

How do I get it to full screen?

Hi @theshark96,

Try these steps`

  1. Dashboard > Pages
  2. Edit Forum Page
  3. Select "Page no Sidebar" option in the template settings

@chris That's not working for me. I would pay you if you took a look at it personally

Insert this CSS code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > Custom CSS Code textarea, save it, delete all caches, go to forum front-end and press Ctrl+F5 twice:

#wpforo  { max-width: 80%; }

@chris should I delete the code that's already there and insert the new code you gave me?

That's the Page title, the look comes from the theme you have activated

try refreshing the site by pressing 2 times Ctrl+F5, it must delete the cache.
