Row widths not working at all

I am new to Site Origin, coming from DIVI.

Something I am a little confused by is the row width settings. If I choose Standard, my row is full width. There is no CSS on the row to make it a fixed width.

Am I supposed to create my own styles to set these, or is there a stylesheet missing from the plugin somehow?

    Hi Laurence

    Thanks for reaching out.

    “Standard” would normally be contained within your theme’s content container.

    Ok thanks, am learning about it all.

    In that case how would one have full page if my theme’s content is thinner? It just seems I have to do extra coding to style the widths to make to work.

    Also there is no default padding in the columns, which also made me wonder if a stylesheet is missing. So am I right in saying I also need to style a default padding? I would not want to set padding manually in the settings for every row/column/module, there should be defaults which the settings override.

    Its not a lot of problem doing this… I am looking for a content builder to suit developers as opposed to people without development experience (e.g. DIVI) so I dont mind setting the defaults, but just needed to know whats expected, as it did not work right of the box, which is what I was expecting.

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    You can set LayoutRow Layout to Full Width Stretched, which uses JavaScript to break out of your theme’s container.

    There should be column padding set without any action. You can adjust the defaults from SettingPage BuilderLayoutRow Gutter. If there is no gutter by default, please, send a link to a page concerned and we’ll take a look.

    Javascript? Oh that does not sound good. That explains why a demo site I saw have content jumps, as it loaded in a thin area, then once all JS is loaded, the content increased width on the screen! Every page load. I find it quite bizarre to use JS to break out of the theme, when you could just code in the widths so they load right first time. If the theme has full page width, then the widths can be output in the HTML/CSS.

    I have also been looking at an alternative content builder that is working out of the box, so I may go with that then as I really dont think JS should be used to adjust layouts. Unless we can disable the JS, and we can program in the CSS ourselves (if SO builder adds an appropriate class to represent “standard” and other widths?)

    JS full-width containers are the only way we can offer full-width content with any theme out of the box. If you’d like to use CSS instead of JS full-width containers, please, see Page: Advanced Customizations

    You’re welcome. There are occasionally one or two additional rules required with the above change. If you end up using Page Builder and the above and run into any complications, please, let us know.
