Set global (site-wide) default row widths

Page Builder's global default settings determine the default width settings of each row. You can change the following global settings for row width and row content width:

  • Row width: Full width or Fixed
  • Row content width: Full width or Fixed
    Content width can be set only when row width is set to Full width.
  • Max width

Here's what happens when you change global width settings:

  • If you change the global row or row content width setting from Full width to Fixed or vice versa, the new settings only apply to new rows that you create. You can override these settings in individual row settings.
  • If you change the global max width setting to a different number of pixels, the change applies to all existing rows across your entire site whose row width or row content width are set to Fixed. The change applies to the row or the row content width, depending on which is set to Fixed
    As of Page Builder 2.0, you can set a max width for individual rows, so changing the global max width applies to all existing rows in your site that don't have a custom max-width setting.

Notes:

  • Exact row and row content widths are affected by various row and padding settings. See the Related Article on full- and fixed-width row layouts for more details.
  • Changing global settings may not be reflected in individual row settings unless you& clear your browser cache.
  • If you set the row width to Fixed in Page Builder, either in Global Settings or in individual rows, this setting can get overridden if your theme is set to full-width rows.
