Ah, des Design kommt mir bekannt vor.

Also ich habe mal ein Design komplett umgekrämpelt, weil mir Farben und Co. nicht gefallen haben.
Bei meinem aktuellen habe ich den Standard und dann noch ein paar Codes hinzugefügt, darunter auch die Weite meines Journals.

Bei mir sieht des so aus:

width: 1000px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;

Hmm... Dummerweise ändert sich da bei mir nix, wenn ich des eingebe. Des is echt komisch. Bei meinem alten Journal hat des immer alles super funktioniert.
Irgendwas schein ich hier zu übersehen?

Oder das liegt am Design.
Weil ich da nicht geändert bekommen hab, hatte ich damals für die spnbg community auch ein anderes genommen, was man frei Schnauze umbauen konnte :/

Es scheint echt am Design zu liegen. Hatte jemanden angeschrieben, der sowas programmiert und selbst der wusste nicht weiter.
Denke ich muss mir ein anderes Design suchen. Leider. :(

You don't really need custom CSS just to change the width, you just need to type the width you want into 'Journal Width' in the 'Presentation' section for customizing your theme. That's the easiest way to do it. Mine is set at 80 and I'm using percentage rather than pixels, if you want to take a look at mine to get an idea of the size.

Your journal is perfect. That´s exactly the width I want. :)
I tried to change the pixels in my "Presentation" section but I can´t find it?
Look, this is my "Presentation" section:

Oh damn, I think you've chosen a theme that only allows the most superficial edits. I came across a lot of them when I was choosing mine. The only CSS I've added was for my banner because I'm pretty much of a gumby when it comes to coding. But I chose that theme specifically because it is one of the listed themes that allows you to make a lot of changes including uploading your own banner which was the most important thing for me.

Try going to the community scholarslayouts and ask if they can help. She does custom layouts and also has a huge number of tips listed. Hope that helps - it really is a pretty theme.

Good idea. Thank you. :)
I´ll try it this way. :)

If there is no way to change my layout then I´ll use another.
Which theme are you using?

It's called Flexible Squares. It comes in a few different colour versions but it's customizable - you can change the colour of everything. I played around with it and tried heaps of different combinations until I made it just how I wanted it. I wanted one where I could add lots of icons and whatever banner I've made to suit my mood. The only thing I'm not sure about is if I've got extra custom abilities because I have a paid account. If you go with that one and you need any help, just PM me :)

Sounds good. :)
Looks like I can´t change my theme.
I asked someone of the scholarslayouts community and she couldn´t help me. :/

I´ll look for your theme and try to change it just how I want it. :)

Oh and btw I have a paid account, too. :)

Thank you so much for your help. <3

This looks fabulous! I like it better than the other one!! Let me know if you need help placing a header image but it looks really lovely the way it is :)

Thank you. :)
I´m glad you like it. ;)
I like it, too. :D
I´m working on my header in photoshop now. :D
I think I´ll need help placing my header later. ;)
