Content all went right justified?

Recommended Posts

lloydfilms

I made a couple new blog entries and added a page and everything went screwy. A lot of the content went right justified and where I once had 2 columns of boxes I have one long column and my features won't display. Anybody have any ideas what might have happened? Or is anyone available to hire by the hour to fix it? Thanks, Shawn

Shawn, you added boxes, but probably didn't apply those boxes correctly in a template. Presently, your boxes are applied full width, likely in a PageTemplate, rather than in a Content Area template. Check your layout in Dashboard > PageLines > Templates and make sure also your page has the proper number of box columns set. It appears you have multiple columns but only two filled for that page. See: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Template_Setup and http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Boxes_Section and http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Page_Setup_Settings

Shawn, sorry that I failed to note you're using PlatformPro. Yes, Framework has many more options for this. PlatformPro ONLY allows boxes to be full width. The Boxer plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/boxer/ works great in PlatformPro. However, in Framework, you can easily apply our boxes within the content area with far more flexibility and many more settings. To upgrade, I'd suggest writing to hello@pagelines.com and reference this topic.

Sounds like it would be a worthwhile upgrade. Still I think either something is corrupted or some global option has been changed which is causing multiple display problems amongst both the boxes sections and the features section. Also my background pattern image disappeared, although I have since turned it off. Any suggestions on how to find someone who could trouble shoot this issue? Thanks again, Shawn

Shawn, On that page, scroll down to PageLines Meta Settings. You should see an option for Boxes. Check there and see how many boxes you have set. Change the number to two. It may even be blank. Two should be your setting for that page. This will override any global settings you have in Dashboard > PlatformPro > Boxes. See if this works and please let me know.

Hmm. Well I had "box_col_number" set to 5 in the " CUstom Fields" section. I set it to 2 but there wasn't any change.

Did you have a Boxes tab in the Meta Settings?

I don't think so. I can't find any tabs that say "Meta Settings" on the settings for my "Samples" page.

I think I may have fixed it. Somehow my content area in the layout editor was set to -24 pixels. I have no idea how that happened. Thanks for your help and patience.
