    I had to change from the Parallax Pro theme to the full frame theme because parallax full width didnt seem to give me a truly full width page. As a bonus, I like the header much better in Full frame. the Parallax Pro header was never as narrow as I wanted. Sadly, I am still having a couple of issues with Full frame. Despite the name, it isn’t really a full width page. The content is still set inside a fixed width element. Unfortunately, sometimes I just need a page that has a true full width design.

    Is it done this way to make it responsive? Is there some reason I cant have a 100% width for the wrapper and the content?

    I am trying to get my art portfolio online and I want to be able to put up large image maps that can fill the entire screen. I want to be able to display the maps on my large screen televisions when I have an exhibit. I know I can make these using lots of other non-web design based tools, but I really like the idea of doing it within a website that viewers can take with them and explore further. I know I can do this with page builders, but it creates such messy code, sometimes I dont want to.

    @destinblack: What you can do is Go to => Dashboard => Edit the page which you want to be full width => Get to the bottom of the. page you will see Layout Option => Select No Sidebar (Full Width). If you still feel the page width is not full enough let me know on which page you want full width.

    I did that, but it isn’t full width, not really. I looked at the theme code and it looks like it has a full width area but the post or page itself is still wrapped in a fixed width. I wish I could read the code better, but I dont remember enough and your designs are complex (though they seem quite well done and organized). The best I could understand, the theme has a wrapper with the main site inside it and that definitely goes to 100% but then the content is inside that in a fixed width container and no matter what layout I pick, it will always be a fixed width. It appears to be a choice of 1280px with no sidebar or 900px with a side bar. That does not help me at all because I need to be able to insert pages or posts where the content is 100% sometimes.

    @destinblack: If you want full width on the pages
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS and add the following CSS Code.

    .wrapper {
    	width:1380px;
    }

    If you want full-width only on selected pages let me know.

    Let me know if this solves your issue.

    I do wish the whole site were slightly wider and I will change that if it wont mess up the responsiveness. I saw that in the code before and I understood that altering it makes the site bigger. I considered changing it, but I was concerned it would mess up the sites responsiveness. That’s the whole reason I picked WordPress and purchased a theme to begin with. I haven’t written code in so long I dont know how to respond to the new, wildly different, screen sizes.

    However, I really do need a template for full width pages that is truly 100%. It would let me complete the most pressing parts of the site more quickly.

    @destinblack: The following CSS Code should make the page full width as well as retain responsiveness.
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS and add the following CSS Code.

    @media screen and (min-width:1366px) {
    	.wrapper {
    		width:1380px;
    	}
    }

    Let me know if this works out.
    Kind Regards,
