How can I set the template width in Helix 3. I understand that it responds to the screen but the especially the Header on my screen seems to be to wide. I'd like to set the Header and Site container width. Currently its default more than 1000px, let say I want to set it to 980px!

By the way - excellent product!!!!

Hello Sohan,
these guys are really right (and these are many, seach for this topic on google or in your forum).
please make an input field for controlling the boxed-width.
Thank you

Sorry, but "responsiveness" has nothing to do with that missing basic and global parameter!?
If you provide a "boxed" layout option, it is not good practice to hard-code the max-width into the LESS files. It has to be customizable.

(BTW the same applies to PageBuilder, which seems to use a fixed max-width default as well!?)

As far as I remember, there was a "Width" option in HELIX 2 with pre-defined values.
Why was it removed completely in HELIX 3?
Maybe it can be even a free input with % and px?

I think, this should definitely be a customizable parameter. An input field with % and/or PX. :( ;)

Dear Willem Nelson
Put this code on your theme.less file

.sppb-container{
max-width: 980px;
}
.container{
max-width: 980px;
}

and let us know what happened then.
