    Hi,

    From one of your videos, it says the default width of the Ultra Theme is 1200. How do I go about changing this?
    Thanks for your help,
    Ric.

    Hi Ric

    Thanks for your support.

    You should be able to change Ultra’s width using this one rule:

    /* Ultra Container Width */
    
    .container {
      max-width: 960px;
    }

    Adjust as required.

    If you’re not already using a Custom CSS plugin I recommend: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/. Once that’s activated you’ll find a Custom CSS menu item under Appearance. Insert the above rule there.

    Let me know how you come along 🙂

    I finally have the initial documentation up for Ultra: https://purothemes.com/documentation/ultra-theme/. The next update will offer a boxed layout version. I’m working on that this week.

    Thanks for the .container max-width solution.
    Actually I am trying to wrestle with getting the footer to be “contained” to the max-width value.

    Just read your updated Ultra documentation saying something about the boxed layout version… can’t wait… need it… got a tip to make the footer match max-width with the container? Tried max-width but the footer then is not centered but rather left justified.

    .site-footer .footer-main {background: #7c90c4; color: #f01fa8; padding: 0 5%;max-width: 960px;}

    Thanks, looking forward to your reply and “boxed layout” version.
    Ric.

    Thanks 🙂

    I’ll have the next update shipped ASAP!

    I’ve tested the CSS rule I sent above at Appearance > Custom CSS. To get access to Appearance > Custom CSS you’ll need to install the plugin Simple Custom CSS. In testing, that rule adjusted the container bound in all places, including the footer. But to clarify, this rule will only adjust the content bound, it won’t adjust the background color, the background color will still stretch 100%.

    If you can perhaps explain a little further, I’ll do my best to resolve.

    Hi,

    Yes, “the background color will still stretch 100%”. I would like it to “contained” and centered like the Header and be able to change the colors of the footer.

    I think I’ve read in the forum somewhere that you were going to add more comprehensive control of color and font styles… hope this is the case.

    Thanks,
    Ric

    Hi Andrew,

    I will be checking everyday for a “boxed layout” version! Hopefully with lots of font and color control.
    No pressure!

    Ric.
