    I believe the issue is the width of the body text in my blog post. Right now, when I add text into a new post, the width looks really narrow (each line of text is only 10 words/42 char at the most, before it starts the next line). When I look at the demo site for the Jorgen theme (the one I’m currently using), their body text looks wider than mine.

    Also on my blog post page, I have inserted an audio component, which seems to take up a much wider width across the page … ultimately, it looks very uneven with how the body text appears above it.

    How can I fix this? Is there a way to change the width of the body text, so it is the same as the audio player? Thank you for your help!

    You should be able to enter 100% in the content component if that is what you are using in the audio component as well to make both stretch the width of the page. Or perhaps you are just writing in the post editor.

    Would you send me a screenshot of what is happening, so I can look into this?

    What version of Internet Explorer are you using?

    I’m using Internet Explorer version 11.0. Also tried opening it in Firefox (version 38.0), looks the same.

    You entered a snippet of code that caused this:

    .jorgen-entry-content p, .jorgen-entry-content h1, .jorgen-entry-content h2, .jorgen-entry-content h3, .jorgen-entry-content h4, .jorgen-entry-content h5, .jorgen-entry-content h6, .jorgen-entry-content ol, .jorgen-entry-content ul { 
    max-width:500px;
    }

    This is why you are only getting a width of 10 words/42 char at most.

    Where would I be able to change this, through the code editor?

    Okay, I think I just figured it out, I found the width setting under the Theme tab (I’m not really a coder, so editing directly in the code makes me quite anxious). Thanks for your help with this!

    Ok. Glad you found it. If you ever add custom CSS code snippets, we recommend using the Simple Custom CSS plugin.

    But, those theme options under the customizer work well if you’re trying to change your content width on every post and page.
