A question on Content-width and responsiveness in Wordpress.
Posted on 2014-11-06
Hey. Having tried a lot of different themes for my wordpress site, I have been wondering about the "waste of screenspace" of many themes. Generally it seems like many of them puts the content as well as the sidebars in a narrow "frame" in the middle, leaving lots of space to the left and right. This is on the case on desktop and laptop monitors, but not on tablets and smartphones
My questions are:
1. Does the waste of space on computer-screens stem from the responsiveness to tablets and smartphones, i. is the waste of space on larger screens a consequence of the themes ability to adapt to smaller.
2. Are there any other good reasons for the rather wide margins of most themes?
All the best, MH
