Feature Slider partial width with primary sidebar next to it

Recommended Posts


Hello, I would like to have my feature slider set at 636px wide, to allow the primary sidebar right next to it. Is there any way to do this? Please and thank you.

Hi there, you can place the feature slider next to the sidebar by placing the 'features' section inside the 'content-area' in the drag and drop, as opposed to the 'page template' area (where it appears as default).

Simply go to the drag and drop page, click on 'content-area' in the right layout area image at the top of the page. Below select your required page template, and then scroll down to see the active sections. Slide 'features' into the active list on the left.

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.

Hi, thank you for the response. I am not sure if I am not in the right area but there isn't a feature option. Am I not doing it right?

I believe James thought you were using PageLines Framework, not PlatformPro. In PlatformPro, you will need to use custom CSS to resize the slider, reposition it if needed, and reposition the sidebar. Please see here for instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

      After updating the site below to Framework 2.4.6, the main feature slider has changed appearance, now looking pixellated. Before it looked perfect.
      Please can you advise what I should do to make the slider look correct (should be 250px high). See attached for an indication of what is happening.
      Several other the sites we have created use PageLines Framework and I am wary of updating them to 2.4.6 if it will cause all Feature Sliders to break in this way.
      Many thanks,

      I am trying to start from scratch and create a page template. i have inserted the navbar and header with a text area and the primary sidebar on the right hand side of the page. 
      My page is 1200 pixels wide and I want to have the text column to be 900 pixels and the sidebar column 300 pixels
      I have tried adding a two column and three column into the section and adjusting the sizes of the text area and the sidebar.
      When I get the text area width above 6/12 and the sidebar 3/12 the sidebar jumps to the bottom of the section with the text area above it. 
      Any Ideas? What am I missing here? Appreciate any help!

      I'm just trying to set up a standard website with a primary sidebar in the right column and blog on the Homepage beneath a RevSlider, Highlight and ibox. The templates seem to have changed with DMS2. Please tell me how to set this up. On a DMS1 website, I set up a Home page template, inside pages template and 2 others, needing only a little help.
      On this DMS2 website, I just want a Home page template and all other pages template. Please tell me how. The website is rockwallrocks.com.

      Hi, the Primary sidebar on my site's Calendar page looks great on Chrome, but doesn't show in Firefox or IE?  The crazy thing is that it worked fine while on my test site.  But now this problem has appeared on my client's live site.  I am using DMS 1 and Wordpress 3.9.  I deactivated all plugins and the problem still remains.  Here is the Calendar page's link... http://eastondems.com/calendar-3/.  You'll see that the sidebar is visible only in Chrome.  Not sure how to fix this?

      My primary sidebar is full of widgets, when I go to the widget menu in wordpress I don't see any widgets in the universal sidebar.
      What do you suggest me to do? 
      Thank in advance!
