Column Layout?

columns boxes layout

Hi Chris,

 

Looking at your image I would say put everything from fixed nav - contentbox into the header or page template area.

 

Then the boxes sections will need to go into the content-area part of the template. You could either set this up using a sidebar with a widget in for the third box, or by using a plugin like wp-boxer to create all three of the box sets. Then using the pagelines grid shortcodes (http://www.pagelines...rid-shortcodes/) you can spilt the content-area up into the various columns.

Wondering how a person would layout the drag & drop sections to get a full height column in the right 1/3 of a page?

Yes - I see the "Grid System" but the idea is to use SECTIONS, not just to format static content.

 

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
