max-width : 1152px

Post by abcd2014 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:45 am

Code: Select all

.wrap {
	max-width: 1152px;
	min-width: 625px;
Is the max-width = 1152 related to mobile resolutions?
Or with some special reasons?
Or just a common value?

BTW: I want to change it to 1200, but I am afraid the 1200 is worse in some cases.

There is extensive discussion in Area51, the developer hangout, see the topic [RFC] Define max-width for prosilver - Development Discussion Board. I will defer to the phpBB developers in general, and @hanakin in particular, to explain the rationale.

As an admin and techie end user who uses dual 24" IPS monitors, I didn't like the change at first, but quickly realized that it does provide a better reading experience. YMMV.

1152px is 1200px when you add to it the padding of the body + buffer for the media query then looking for the closest value divisible by even increments of 12.
