    Hello there and thank you for an amazing theme! It has everything I could ask for.

    There’s just one change I’d like to make so Flashlight fits my needs like a glove. I’d really, really appreciate if you could let me know if there’s an easy way to make all content 600 pxs wide without messing up sidebars, thumbnails and stuff. This is specially important for the blog and single posts, but it would be perfect to have it in pages too. I’m no expert so going all John Rambo on the code would probably mess up this beautiful theme.

    Thank you in advance, I’d appreciate any help.



    You can’t change the width of the content area without affecting the sidebars, etc.

    Try to add following code to css/custom.css:

    .content .box {
    width: 600px;

    #top .sidebar2 {
    left: 932px;




    Thank you, Dude!

    And another thing: how do I display full content on the main blog page? Instead of having posts cut off by “[…]”



    You can increase the size of post lines Settings > Writing > Size of the post box. :)




    Hi Ismael, thank you for your answer, but it seems I didn’t make myself clear.

    What I mean is, for instance, if you check Flashlight’s demo at http://kriesi.at/themes/flashlight/blog/, the first blog post ends with […]. You can only read the full post if you click the title.

    What I’d like is to show full posts straight away on the main blog page (in this case showing all the photos and text), since I don’t like having excerpts, “read more” buttons, or having to click the post.

    My old blog posts all have photos and they don’t show up on the main blog page, only when you are in the single post page.



    Well, I replaced the_excerpt with the_content in line 118 of loop-index.php.

    Now it shows the full content of my posts.

    Hope I didn’t mess around in the wrong place…



    It’s the right place – this mod won’t break anything.
