how do you make the site larger on larger screens

Post by TheButcher2 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 5:26 pm

I just got myself a 27" monitor and the site looks weird and small with a lot of space on the outer edges, I want the table in the middle to be wider and work right on all monitors and mobile if possible. There is too much ,,wasted blank space if you see what I mean.







Peace

In the CSS file common.css, the wrap size is set under .wrap

How wide do you want it?
Set it to 100% if you like.
