A new feature I’ve been adding to my themes is the ability to choose the width of your site pages, from full width to a shorter width (and centered). By default, the Zen Theme is set to be full width. This means regardless of the user’s browser settings, the Zen theme will expand from left to right while keeping the main content area at 940 pixels wide and centered. If you choose the short option, your site will expand only to 1100 pixels and your main content area will be 940px.
Change Your Site Width
- Go to your theme settings and click on the Blog Settings panel
- Find the Page Width setting and choose either Full or Short
- Click SAVE
