Designing with columns

Recommended Posts

rafaeldesilva

Hello, how can I modify boxes in feature pages so they appear in one column beside another column with widgets? It happens, with all layouts I choose, that #boxes div is a sibling of #universal-sidebar (or #whataever-sidebar) and the only common wrapper is #dynamic-content, so there's no way I can center them in the page as I need a common wrapper, it's difficult to explain.. I'll try with an image: This is what I have: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/143/whatihave.png/ I have no way to center boxes and sidebar to align it with the other siblings (features, etc) This is what I need: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/171/whatineedm.png/ A wrapper to make it same width as the other siblings so I can align it... So the question is: how can I add a common wrapper to a boxes section and a widgeted sidebar? Or, how can I solve this problem? Thank you

First, your goal seems like it might require more coding than you really need to do. There's a plugin called DivUp Content, which works exclusively in the content area and could give you the tool you want to create a column of box-like components. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/divup-content/ As you'll see, it can help you structure the content area however you like. Second, if this need is for a static page, then you could always use tables. I've done this on my site, http://www.epicurus.com. You'll see tables all over the content area, including some nested tables, and on in the Universal Sidebar on the right (Marketplace). These are much easier to format and design than boxes.

But the thing is, I have the boxes div, which is inside feature page (this is, inside a page) and, a sidebar (with widgets and whatever). That plugin only seems to work inside the content of a page or post, not even for pagelines boxes. Also, I donn't think adding tables to pagelines boxes would be less coding than adding a wrapper div. Thanks

Hey Rafael, Can't you just add a left margin to the #boxes div, and a right margin to the universal sidebar to align them properly? If you have a link to your site, that would be helpful...

No, as the margin size depends on the screen width, I would need javascript to calculate it, and that's not nice :) I solved it adding a new custom-boxes section thanks
