How to change space between links in sidebars

Recommended Posts


If you look at the old version of our website with PlatformPro (http://thewinesyndicate.ca) and the new version (http://thewinesyndicate.ca/ab/) with PageLines Framework, the spacing between the links in the sidebars is different. How can I adjust that in Pagelines to make it the same as in PlatformPro?

Hi there, you can do this with css and paste the custom code into Pagelines>Site Options>Custom Code.

This is the css from your Platform setup, if you enter this into your framework setup you should see the padding around each item change. You can change the figures to increase/decrease the gap to suit.

.widget ul li {

    padding: 0.3em 2px;


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hi guys,
      we have noticed that the Elements section is displaying incorrectly under IE11 on Windows 10. See xiting.us. The 3 sections above the footer are Elements sections and they have way too much spacing.
      Is this a known issue?

      Hey guys, is there any way to get more than 3 sidebars for my site? I'd like to be able to have more than 3 customized sidebars, but I only have Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary sidebars in my Widgets menu.
      How can I go about adding more sidebars? I've seen plugin support for DMS for more sidebars, using the sidebar manager plugin, or others, but nothing regarding Platform 5 sidebar support.
      Any help? Thanks!

      For some reason the main site of my multisite has lost the functionality of its blog page.
      If you click on a non-link post (i.e. not the links Pageline allows you to set up in the "Format" menu when you edit the post, or video, etc, but set as a "Standard" post), you get no content and a page that only shows a comments field (e.g. "Leave a reply"). If you go into "edit" the post, the content shows up. But not under "view post." 
      I have toggled to all non-Pagelines themes and it works fine in twenty eleven, thirteen and fourteen. It does not work in any Pagelines theme (e.g. postpins, DMS, iBlogPro, etc.). This appears to be confined to this blog. None of the other blogs on the multisite are affected. I have tested with all of the plugins turned off. No effect. 
      Debug only returns the following message: 
      Notice: wpdb::escape is deprecated since version 3.6! Use wpdb::prepare() or esc_sql() instead. in /www/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3411
      Interestingly enough, I played around with the Permalinks. If you set them to default something interesting happens: the "Blog" item in the menu will no longer go to the "Blog" page. It will go to the "Home" page, even though the posts page is set to the "Blog" page and the Front Page is set to "Home" in Reading. Also, this one part that becomes broken when you switch back to default Permalinks works fine when you are in the visual editor but not when you log out (then you get the Blog link going to the Home page). 
      For posts with actual content, you can test those titled "Smut Capital of America" or "Some Problems with Linda Williams' "Hard-Core Eroticism" which are posts 7 and 8 down, respectively, since the others are just video or linked content. Yes, this is my porn studies class. So, for example: http://imagesoferoticism.com/smut-capital-of-america/ 
      I test my sites at the beginning of the semester and this definitely wasn't a problem before. However, that could mean this happened anytime between the end of August and now. It's too bad I didn't notice earlier. Normally, if something doesn't work, students won't say anything. So, I have to be on top of things or they use it as an excuse not to do work. It's important that I get this working as soon as possible. 
      I tired enabling Legacy Mode on the blog. This allowed the content posts to show up as showing full content on the Blog page, but then the newer posts that use the "link" and "video" functions from PL do not work. I also tried using PostLoop or PostPins, same result. I may have to put the content in myself and use the Legacy settings as a way to at least get things up quickly. Not sure what else to do. 
      This is a Multisite hosted on Flywheel. Also, I tried deleting the cache. No change.
