and then is there a way to make a link I've added in the footer to be underlined before hover, and change color upon hover?

Hi,

On this site www.CCBSI.com, how can I narrow the white boxes (call-out) on each page (except for home)? Please advise. Thank you.

I don't believe the Callout can be easily narrowed.  I think it's a full-width element.

 

and then is there a way to make a link I've added in the footer to be underlined before hover, and change color upon hover?

You can do this with CSS. See : http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp

Wordpress doesn't do four columns in the content area.  That might be rather tight looking if you mean in addition to sidebars.

 

There are some column plugins at www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins. I'd recommend using one that's compatible with WP 3.5.

For the callout - narrowing of it - I meant vertically not horizontally. How do I take out the extra space at the bottom?

Links - I'll try and find it.

Columns - I actually found a plugin - WP Easy Columns. It adds the code to make multiple columns. Kinda cool.

 

Please advise on the call-outs. Thanks.

Hi iems

 

In order to remove the padding in the callout section you'll also need to use a bit of custom css. You'll be able to reduce this by adjusting the padding/margins for the callout section.

 

You can find an overview and guide to using css inside the framework here - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-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.

Last time I guessed at the custom css to add, I nearly broke the site. A bit of help would be greatful. If the specific code cannot be given, I understand. I'll have to try.

Please advise if you can give specifics on the code needed to reduce the padding / margins for the bottom of the callout. Thanks.

We're not supposed to provide exact css code for customisations, more to encourage you to learn and provide you with the resources to help improve your experience designing site etc.

 

However if you're stuck we're always here to try and provide assistance.

 

An example of editing the padding for the callout area is pasted below for you :-)

Found it. Actually it was .pl-hero-wrap {padding-bottom:0;} that I was looking for. Thank you for putting up with my questions.
