    Is there a way I can control the number of columns I get on the blog post page (my home page) and the category pages?

    The blog post page currently displays a wide column and a narrow column of blog posts plus the menu/logo left sidebar. I’d rather have 2 columns – the menu/logo sidebar left and the blog posts using the full width of the right.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks for the help.

    The blog I need help with is: dougscholzcarlson.wordpress.com

    Hi Doug,

    Thanks for checking with us on this.

    The large posts are showing in the large format because they’re assigned ‘sticky’ status (and the smaller posts as they aren’t). There’s not a theme option to force the grid posts to 100% width, but if you have WordPress Premium then it should be possible with some CSS.

    If you have WordPress Premium (or above), then give this CSS a try, and it should work:

    .grid-item {
        width: 100% !important;
    }

    Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the help. Adjusting which posts are sticky did what I wanted. I’ll try the CSS as soon as I get up the nerve to go that far under the hood.

    Sounds like a plan :) If anything goes wrong you can remove the CSS and the theme will go back to what it was, so you’re free to experiment without worry as any change you don’t like (or mistake) can be easily reverted.

    Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

    Thanks!
