2013 was the year of "responsive design."  Twitter Bootstrap is widely praised as one of the right tools.  You may also like this introduction to the Grid, where the references and further reading sections are very well chosen.

Have you tried to use CSS and set a width attribute on the container element?

In related news, I don't think the Eternea site is a very good model to learn from!

Yes I know how to set the width in css but in a wordpress site it doesnt do as expected.
This sets the width but hides part of the website on resize.
My question is about what can be done with twenty fourteen as I am wasting too much time with fiddling with css lookng at other links.

I tried this style. I would prefer not to keep chasing other possible answers on other links.

.site {
	background-color: #fff;
	max-width: 1060px;
	position: relative; left:8%;
	
}

Open in new window


also in css you are supposed to to do this but in wordpress how do I add a wrap tag?

#wrap {
      width: 900px;
      margin: 0 auto;
}

<html>
<head>
	<title>My Site</title>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrap">

		<!-- WEBSITE GOES HERE -->

</div>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

1.

What is not happening that you think should be happening?

2.

What is happening that you think should not be happening?
be specific, provide screenshots.

if you want a fixed width twentyfourteen is not the theme for you to use
but if you really want, you can do something like this but that defeats the purpose of twentyfourteen and mobile friendly
.site {
	background-color: #fff;
	max-width: 1060px;
	min-width: 1060px;
	width:1060px;
	position: relative; left:8%;
	
}

if you are not sure what you are doing do not alter theme files except for the CSS

I am happy with twenty fourteen it is just the full screen display for non-mobile devices.

For a full screen on pc or laptop I want a not so wide display. An ipad or mobile for full screen is fine.

This code needs to be in a media query? I can send screen shots later when I have more time

.site {
      background-color: #fff;
      max-width: 1060px;
      min-width: 1060px;
      width:1060px;
      position: relative; left:8%;
      
}

OK this seems to work to what I want on many devices.
.site {
	background-color: #fff;
	max-width: 960px;
	position: relative; left:0%;
	
}
