Width of Section



Best Answer beardedavenger , 13 March 2013 - 08:44 PM

I mean it's possible but yeah it would require a fair amount of work only because it's absolutely positioned. You can try putting a max-width on it equal to your sites width then go from there.

Hey Nick,

I've got projects on a fixed width page, so the section's background color go full width and it looks a bit off.  Is there any way to limit it to the 1000px wide site?

Ouch. Hmm, yeah not sure about that really, as it breaks the normal content to go to 100% width by design. It's absolutely positioned as well and centering it would really require another div. :(

I had tried that, and the width was correct, but it was aligned to the left side of the browser window.  Any thoughts on making it go center?

Sorry for the silly question. I am struggling with the same problem. How do you "give a max width, set left and right margins to auto"?
