Change width of container

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I'd like to change the size of the .container, which currently is set to 1170px wide. I want to change it to 1028.

In my template settings I have two choices: 1170 or 940.

How can I change the width?

Here's the page:

I have included a screenshot as well.

it request customization, so I can give you only few tips:

.container {
max-width: 1028px;

use inside custom.css file which has to be created in template folder - of course in /css/ subfolder.

That didn't work.

See the attachments. One is the custom.css file and it shows it is in the template/css subdirectory. The other shows the setting for .container didn't change.

Replace with this small modification:

.container {
max-width: 1028px !important;
