Hi all

I'm using the simplified layout with the wpFORO widgets to the right.

I cant help but think my forum is very narrow?

See attached picture and the white space to the right and left.

I'd like the widget bar/menu to be more to the right and the forum contents to take up most of the left or rest of page.

Any suggestions please?

I'm using DIVI as my theme.

Hi @wppileyrei,

That depends on the current active theme. Most of the themes have a Full-Width template when you're adding or editing a page:

Hi @alvina

I'm using the Divi theme and dont see the fullwidth option on the forum page.

The forum doesn't look too bad in my opinion, just seems a little narrow?

Hi @alvina

Does the width of the forum look ok to you? I have the wpforo sidebar with widgets to the right.

On my home PC screen there is a lot of empty white space to the left and right.

I will try playing around with Divi and seeing if I can get a full width page working but am not 100% certain how to do it.

Thanks.

@wppileyrei

add this to custom css

.page-id-421 .container {
max-width: 100%;
}

Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Style (custom css)

Hi @tutrix

THANK YOU!

Much better and fills the space nicely.

Happy to mark this as resolved.

Now if I can just solve my colour issue thread I will be done 🙂
