Adjust the width of blog entries on site I'm working on


I have been helplessly trying to just make these three blog entries in the "News" section of this site I'm working on wider and I for the life of me cannot figure it out. Completely frustrated. This seems like it should be so simple.

The site can be found here


Click on "News" and you will see the three blog posts - I need them wider to fit the entire page and also adjust for mobile version. Thanks for any advice!

Hi Brandon,

If you have a look around line 1145 in your code you'll see class name : vc_span_3 as well as similarly named classes being used by surrounding elements.

The convention is that there are 12 columns so a fullwidth column using the same naming convention would be: vc_span_12.

To answer your question more directly you would want to change all class names within that row to achieve desired change on line 1145 change the class name to vc_span_1, then vc_span_6 that follows to vc_span_10 and the vc_span_3 follwing that to vc_span_1 and also add any bootstrap sizing classes you required for mobile etc.

To clarify a lil, currently you have a layout using : 3cols - 6cols - 3cols and with suggested changes : 1col - 10cols -1col.

Hope this helps
