  1. Hello,
    I am trying to use Type theme now. I have tried tweaking the css for a while, and I can’t make the articles fit correctly on mobile. When I view your site on mobile, your articles fit the full width of the mobile screen. However, on mine, the articles do not stretch across the screens full width. There’s too much space on the left and right in my articles. Do you know how I can fix this? You said that Type looks good on mobile automatically, but I don’t think that’s the case because your Type website, and another person’s Type website both fit the mobile screen properly, but mine does not. So, there must have been something that you did to make it look better on mobile? Can you possibly share what you did please? Like the custom css. Thank you

  2. Hello Melody,

    I am so glad you are here.

    It seems you have an issue with plugins especially caching plugins so that disabled some CSS codes.

    And also, I am using the premium version of type wordpress theme so I don’t have any issues and can customise to my taste Incase you see some features.

    If you are still encountering any problems after getting uninstalling your caching plugins or you disabled caching CSS options, let me know, I will be here for you.

    Have a nice time!
