Features cell grids?

Recommended Posts

codezilla

We would like to set up a template that allows several of the Features to be viewed side by side and above one another on the same page, as opposed to showing a single feature at a time. Can you suggest how to do this? We're needing two Features above a second row of three more Features, as can be seen here: http://www.moma.org/ Basically, we are wanting to recreate the layout of that page. Can someone give some advice? Thanks!

You should set up your site with the feature slider inside the content area, sidebar wrap at top, next to it. Three boxes below. Your feature slider, like theirs should focus on fluid content (things that are current, changing). An additional plugin will be needed for a second slider that is applied by shortcode. This will go in a text widget in the sidebar wrap (usually the tertiary sidebar). It should contain content that changes but less frequently and requires less detail. Another slider plugin, one that is simpler is also needed for the boxes. It should work by shortcode too and must be customizable by CSS. Use this for "departments" or categories that are relatively static in nature, such as shopping, where the content only changes within the context of the category. You can find plenty of plugin sliders using shortcodes at http://www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins or purchase some at http://codecanyon.net/category/plugins/wordpress
