Fixing page width?

Hello,

I have searched and cannot find an answer and I am not sure where I should post this.

I developed my new website on a medium sized notebook, but now when I view it on wider/larger computer screens I do not like how the entire page will widen to meet the edges of the screen.

How can I fix the width? Can I place a different/new background image for the overflow area? What is a good dimension to restrict the page?

Thank you!

Hi,

I think what you need to do is go the Theme Options -> layout, and look at "Layout WIDTH and type (FLUID or FIXED)" where you can choose a fixed, rather than a fluid, width.

You can change the _colour_ of the background that will be seen easily enough in Body, Text & Links - look in the box to set padding and change the value in "background: #ffffff;"

I've seen posts on the forum that describe how to use an image for the background, you could try a search here for that?

Thank you for posting, I was able to constrain the layout to the exact width I wanted.

When I change the background in Body, Text & Links however, the background bleeds through to my sidebars and centre column so I am now trying to figure out how to fix that.

This is because those other areas have no background color yet. There is a place for each layout area in the theme options where you can set a background color.

I have found where to change the background for all areas except for the areas to the left and right of the page menu bar. This is stopping me from changing the background color for my site.

I posted a thread in the appropriate forum to ask my question with more detail:
