Hi guys,

 

do you think it's possible to add a switch from a 12 columns based layout to a 16 columns base one?

I think this option can give even more flexibility to the system.

 

Best regards

Carlo

I thought Bootstrap was built on the 12 grid system? Sure DMS is built around Bootstrap....

@carletto0282, dms/dms/less/variables.less has a @gridColumns LESS variable, which is set to 12. Technically, it could be changed via child theme style.less. However, the DMS Editor's JS and the default LESS has some hard-coding based on a 12-column grid. As such, the answer is effectively "no, it cannot be changed from a 12 column grid."

 

@GetMeWebDesign, yes, PageLines Framework incorporated many aspects of Bootstrap 2, as does DMS. However, it's not "straight Bootstrap," if you will.

@Clifford P. Thanks... I thought it was closer than that. Re 12 vs 16... I suppose it is because 12 is a wonderful number (making imperial measurements more flexible than metric). For symmetry, 12 offers an additional variable... 1,2,3,4,6,12, whereas 16 has 1,2,4,8,16.

 

I know this is an odd question, but what would you need more flexibility for, or is it simply the 2 x 8 vs 2 x 6?

I haven't personally experienced a need for any other number of grid columns. I was just helping answer the question. :-)

Twelve is the best number in my opinion, reason being it's the highest number with one syllable. Both PageLines Framework and DMS use a heavily customized version of Bootstrap. Also, what purpose would you like a sixteen column layout, as far as I can tell, you can pretty much create any kind of layout you like with a twelve column layout.

Thanks anyway!
