Hi Commons Team,

I am writing because I noticed the display features on my site,, are looking "off" lately. I thought perhaps this is due to a recent update? This site uses the Oxygen theme.

On the main page,, the posts which usually are down a column in the center, with widgets on the right, now has the posts wider and the widget at the bottom.

The individual posts, such as, are a bigger problem. The images and text are moved down past the left toolbar, leaving most of the page white until you scroll down. The right sidebar widget is again pushed down to the bottom.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks very much!

On June 11, the Oxygen theme was updated from 0.5.4 to 0.5.8. That upgrade involved the removal of certain pieces of CSS that dictated the layout for the pages in question. I have no idea why, and I can't find a public repository for the theme to explain the reasoning.

I've manually applied the missing styles, and it appears to fix the problem. For posterity, they are:

.content-wrap {
    float: right;
    width: 79.787234042553%;
/* 750 / 940 = 0.79787234042553 */

.page-template-fullwidth .content-wrap {
    width: 100%;

#content {
    float: left;
    width: 62.666666666667%;
/* 470 / 750 = 0.6266666666666667 */
    margin: 0 0 30px;

They can be found at Dashboard > Appearance > Edit CSS.
