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.

      Hey there,
       
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
       
      All the best,

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.
      Site example

       
      Thx

      Hi,
      I am using pl-section-journey and hiding most of the images. When running the page via google speed insights, it tells to optimize all the images that are in this plugins default. (e.g. https://queue-it.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-journey/images/drawer-5.jpg ) Like this one that is not visible on the website, but is a part of the plugin and comes up in google insights.
      I've deleted all the images in the plugin, but they still seem to come up. Ref. this page: queue-it.com/features

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
      Nate
