Hi,  my forum window in my opinion is small width wise on mobile and desktop view... Is there some code I could use to expand the forum window. Thanks

Note the sides of the forum window in the attachment... This width is what I mean.

Hi @dacsoft,

Edit the forum page and select Full Width or One Column page template in Page Template admin-box. If your theme doesn't have such page template check other options to remove the right sidebar. This page is two column page and forum has no chance to be wider until the right sidebar is not removed or the layout set one column.

Also, if you want to change forum and sidebar widths you can use this simple CSS code. 
Just put it in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > “Custom CSS Code” textarea, to save it, 
delete all caches and do Ctrl+F5 on front end to load new CSS code:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-content{ width: 73%; }
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-right-sidebar { width: 24%;}

@chris  , Thank You for helping me, though i tried the CSS the way you said ,and emptied the forum cache and did the ctrl+F5 command, the forum still wont expand width wise. i understand what you mean about the right sidebar and its dimensions.

is there any other code i could use to fix the forum width?

Thanks again.
