Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm currently building a site in PageLines and am hoping to make the site center vertically AND horizontally, similar to this: http://trendis.si/wp-themes/alliansy/

Is this possible? If yes, please let me know what I need to do.

Regards,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I apologise but I am not quite sure what you mean by centered both vertically and horizontally. The site you linked, just looks like it has a standard layout with one sidebar left and content to the right of the sidebar or am I missing something ?

Hi Danny,

If you're able to look at it on a large/r screen you might notice that the content (left sidebar+content) is always centered.. Even when re-sizing the window.

Have a look again if you can, and try re-sizing your window and check out what the website and its content does. That's essentially what I'm looking to do.

Hopefully I'm making some sense!

Hi,

I really do apologise but I can't view it on a larger screen, my desktop is current not working and so I am viewing the site on my MacBookPro 15". Therefore, can you provide screenshots so I can get an understanding please.

Hi Danny,

Not a problem. Here it is on my 27" Mac.

Okay, here's the problem with this concept. If you have code to vertically center the content in all browsers, it will seriously harm any mobile view. Literally, the content might be off the screen in an iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Nook or other mobile device. That will seriously cost you in terms of visitors.

In CSS, there's no easy option to dynamically center content vertically. You'd literally have to set a fixed height, which makes the site non-responsive. Even if you used a percentage, if the content is dropped 30%, that means about 1/3 of the screen is unseen by your visitors on mobile views.

I see the issue you're having with a 27-inch Mac screen, but you must consider too, the person viewing on a 4" screen, the 12" screen and the 60" screen. I doubt people will dislike your site if they can see it. However, I guaranty they will dislike if they cannot see it.

Surprisingly, it actually seems to work great on an iPad and iPhone..

Unfortunately, we do not provide support for other company's themes. Please seek support from the theme being used. That's not a PageLines product.

Rob, I'm not asking for support for another company's theme. If you'd read my initial post you would see that the link I provided is simply an example of what I was hoping to achieve with your product.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
