Better Know Amazin' Avenue: Changing The Layout Width

New, 28 comments

I've been at this blogging thing for so long that I sometimes lose sight of little things, like how to use the site optimally. I wandered past my buddy's desk at work today to find him reading the Francoeur Avenue, and I noticed that he was doing so using the site's narrow layout. I asked him why he wasn't using the wide layout, to which he responded with a look of equal parts befuddlement and indignation. Many of you know what I'm talking about, but I'll bet a fair number probably don't know that you can change the width of Amazin' Avenue (and all SB Nation sites) with one mouse click. Learn how after the jump.

On the right sidebar of the front page is a small band with "Narrow" and "Wide" icons. Just click the "Wide" icon to expand the size of the visible content of the site to make better use of your big display.

And just to give you an idea of the difference it makes, here's a side-by-side comparison of the site in both modes. Narrow is on the left, wide is on the right. Click either image to embiggen.

Dead simple, and it makes the site quite a bit more readable in my opinion.
