    I create a post with NO sidebars, but the content is only 600px wide. Why?

    It’s centered with large white space on each side of it.

    Did I miss a setting somewhere?

    Hi,

    You can adjust the size. Add this on your custom.css or Quick CSS

    #top .fullsize .template-blog .post .entry-content > * {
    max-width: 900px;
    }

    Regards,

    Ismael

    Are you sure?

    That doesnt make any sense! The screen width is 1030px, why would you restrict the content of a FULL size post to 600px?

    Even post with 1 sidebar gets more width. 710px.

    I’ll apply it, but that really seems dodgy. We shouldnt have to play with CSS code for this, which should be a default setting.

    thx

    Hi!

    I’ll mark this for Kriesi – maybe he wants to change the default width.

    Best regards,

    while you’re at it, ask him why is it that when i create a blog entry on a full width page and set the preview images manually to be 1030×360 i still get only 461px width?

    Scrap the previous post.

    The images came out the right size when i rebuild thumbnails.

    Hey!

    the width is a simple styling and usability choice. having the blog without sidebar stretch across the full width makes it much harder to read for visitors, because a single line of text would become much longer. The human eye loses focus much easier on a very long line than on a short one and so people will probably read more of your entry if they dont lose focus along the line ;)

    Agreed.

    For text I would never use area that wide, but I’m a photographer, and i must showcase my images as well as i can.

    I can not show my images at 600px wide. That would not impress anyone of my customers.

    I know your theme is not really aimed at photographers, but it is a great theme and perhaps you could have an option to use full width for content if required without having to resort to CSS changes.

    Until then, I’m still happy i CAN make those changes and still use your theme… :)
