So. I have a text widget in the primary sidebar which is place in SB1 (sidebar 1).

 

I want to move it to the right and give it a lot of breathing room between the main column and SB2.

 

This is a mockup of what I am attempting to achieve: http://imgur.com/vSqdi  (fig 1)

 

This is the specific problem: http://imgur.com/UQH8K  (fig 2)

 

As you can see, the text, which will eventually be built to resemble the "Cheat Sheet" in figure 1, must be moved to the right.

 

Do I work with the padding and margins in

#1 The text widget itself

#2 The sidebar widget, or

#3 SB!

 

Thank you.

Hi Suzy. 

 

It is best to format the text widget. Editing the Sidebar widget will cause all similar elements to be affected by the formatting. If you add padding to the sidebar, it is applied to anything you add to the sidebar. If you add it to the widget, then it affects only that widget. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works. 

 

Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

Well, I formatted the text widget by adding a ridiculous amount of padding to it. Now I can't get a border around the text where I want it; instead, it goes all the way out to the edge of the padding.

 

This is why I wanted to look at using the grid. It seems that I have almost no control over the sidebar.

So, let me get this right *BTW, as you know, the documentation is disorganized, loaded w broken/inaccesible links, and severely lacking in content. THAT'S WHY I'M HERE, and that's why I go onto the LiveChat.

 

The Pagelines grid is a 12, and not a 16, is that right?

      I am slowly getting closer to something I like for the general appearance of my site. What's currently nagging me is trying to remove the top and bottom padding/margin from the image in the header. It seems that I've done what I want with the menu but there was dead space above the image and between the image and menu.
      Trying out padding and margin settings, I got something that came close to what I want but saw odd behavior along the way. Changing either the top or bottom padding to 0 (from blank), removed all padding from the top and sides but left a small band between the image and menu.
      Setting all eight padding and margin settings to 0 removed all except the band between image and menu. (But it seems that entering 0 in only the top or bottom padding option is all that was needed.)
      So, heading into the twilight zone, I changed the bottom margin to -1. That removed the band but allowed the menu to slightly overlap the image. AND, narrowing the browser, or viewing on a phone, caused the band to reappear.
      Perhaps there's also a problem with the menu but I don't see it.
      So that's where it stands at the moment: http://756.a44.myftpupload.com 
      I seems to me that if there is a default padding value, setting it to 0 should be all that's needed to get the two sections to meet perfectly on any device/browser width.

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      Hello There, 
      I am working with Platform 5 and have run into an unnerving problem. I am trying to position my clients picture along the bottom of the container, so that it sits right on the bottom. After a good hour of googling and messing with the CSS I figured I would ask the question here. Below is my screenshot displaying my problem. I will need to do this frequently in the future. 
      My Problem Image
      Unlike in DMS, when I add a margin to an embed or image box it simply makes the container larger while keeping the padding, I cannot have any padding or any space whatsoever on the bottom of my clients image.  Is there a way to remove all padding from the container so I can have this work across screen sizes? If not is there anyway to position an element directly at the bottom of another element in Platform 5? This seems like a basic feature and was easily attainable within DMS. 
      I cannot create an image combining all these elements as it will not scale well on mobile and will make my clients logo unreadable and her face incredibly small. 
       
      Thank you for any help,
      Perry

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below
