Specifics for Hot Bokeh template (after installation)
Since this template has an unusual feature (it occupies full screen space), there are some features specific for this template. If you feel that text becomes too wide (on larger screens), you can use CSS3 columns. All you need to do is to wrap the entire page content inside DIV with class "twocols", in example:
<div class="twocols"> ...content for your page here... </div>
In this case, entire page will be separated in two columns, as on this page. On smaller screens (smaller monitors and mobiles), the template will automatically show single column and ignore your command for two columns.
It's also possible to make content area fixed width. All you need to do is to enter page class suffix " fixed" (this is a blank space followed by word "fixed" - don't omit the blank space!). You can enter the page class in Menus > Main Menu > Item name > Page Display Options > Page Class. Such page will have maximum width of 960px (or less on mobile devices).
