Images And Customized Font-Size In Sidebars

Recommended Posts

texasx

Thanks for a great forum,

1. How do I display images in a sidebar the best way? (Just 1 or 2 fixed, no slider)

2. How do I customize the font and the font-size in a sidebar the best way?

Using Framework 2.35

Kind regards

Hi there,

The easiest way to put an image in the sidebar would be to place the image inside a text widget using html. Or via a plugin depending on your requirements.

The only way to customize the front and font size in the sidebar would be to use CSS. You'd need to use www.getfirebug.com to find the selectors for the sidebar and then target the font. All custom css can be placed in Pagelines>site options>custom code.

You can find out more on css and how to structure it here http://www.w3schools.com/css/


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.

Thanks James,

1a. Ok, so how do I place an image into an text widget? Tried a lot ...

1b. Also discovered the contentbox. Will your instructions, to add an image, be the same as for the text widget?

1c. Could you tell a little about pros and cons for a text widget vs contentbox? What´s your idea when to use what?

2. Clear.

Much appreciated

1a. Use HTML, if you require assistance with HTML, please visit this site - http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

1b. Adding an image to a ContentBox requires basic HTML code, please visit the link above.

1c. A Text Widget is a widget and works only in widget areas such as a sidebar. The ContentBox is a section and can be placed in a number of locations.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      I have added a Lax section on the footer of this site: http://www.ics-law.org.php72-38.lan3-1.websitetestlink.com/ but the background image is not displaying. When I first add the image it appears in the background, but then after saving and reloading it is gone even though the thumbnail indicates it's still there. Screenshot attached.
      Any suggestions?

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.
