Resizing a blog

Hi everyone,

Wondering if someone knows how to change manually the size of the blog in Editor X.

I'm struggling to find a way to put it in the middle of the page with margins on the side. The default option takes all the the space and I can't even move the settings on the right.

Really need to succeed this as, first it looks ugly and most of all it doesn't allow me to create a design.

Also, if someone knows how to use the old stripes I'll be grateful. I'd like to create a transparent header that becomes white when scrolling down (like in the old editor) but can't find classic stripes.

Thanks a lot for your help

Hi Ricardo and Robert,

I’m Anna from the Editor X Product team.

We are working on allowing to do this kind of resizing, so stay tuned for updates! As a temporary workaround, you can try adding a vertical section next to the Blog section:

Regarding stripes, you can either set a background color for your header (and any other section) or add a container to the header and set it up to stretch and fill up the entire section. Hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out again if you have any more questions or feedback for us.

Have a great day, Anna

Yep, already used this workaround. Thanks!

Yep. Agree. Right now it seems to take up the full width of the screen even though the actual post is smaller.

Thanks @Anna Cates, I'll try that indeed.

Also, regarding the blog, to you have any plans to allow us to do a custom design for the posts or even propose different layout options? I'm sure this could prove really popular.

I personally would love a layout like a magazine (with a big cover picture at the top, the title of the post within the picture and then the text in the middle. Also having the social media sharing buttons at the top could me more useful that at the end).

Thanks for your help
