Control sections/content overlay

Hey! I have 2 challenges:

 

1: I would like to be able to content/sections next to each other instead of on top of each other. An example of this could be the header of this page: http://kbhff.dk, that has the logo and secondary nav next to each other. Do you know how to?

 

2: I would like to be able to put content on top of other content, e.g.  put links on top of a header image as is done on the same page as before http://kbhff.dk.

 

My page is http://andersaagesen.dk

 

Any help is appreciated and thanks for a great theme!

Hi,

 

1. The link you provided in my opinion doesn't really show sections alongside one another. What is shows to me, is different posts in a three column layout, this can be achieve by using the Magazine mode. Although this is two columns. If you want a column layout similar to the site you link, you could try using the PostPins section or AnyLoop, both available from the PageLines store.

2. Unfortunately, its not possible to put two content sections on top of one another. However, you can use the ContentBox section as a work around, the ContentBox can be cloned and support HTML and shortcodes.

 

If you want a similar Header layout as the site you linked, you could try using the BrandNav section and add the search field using a hook.

Hey Ninja! Thanks a lot for you swift response. I may not have been clear enough in my explanation, so I'll try again. What I'm trying to do is to move a content box next to my navigation (arrow in the picture). I'm able to make a content box in the header, and I'm also able to style it, but when I try to move it, the white space it originally appeared in is still there (the box in the image). I want to remove that white space.

 

Regards,

Anders

Just to clarify, if the contentbox is moved to the top right corner, the excess white space in the header still exists?

Hey Catrina! Well, I am able to put the content of the contentbox to the desired position with CSS, but the actual box below the navigation remains. I'm not able to put the actual contentbox div next to the navigation. Thanks for answering :)

Ah okay, I see what you mean. The way Drag & Drop works, the section will always be activated/positioned immediately below the one on top of it, so that's why the actual contentbox can't actually move next to the navigation. I think if you needed content directly to the right, you'll need to use a hook in the header. For more info on hooks, please see: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/hooks/

Hey Catrina. That was exactly what I feared, haha. Well I guess I have to hit the books, then. Thanks for your help.

There's also a section called business branding which allows for content to be added into the header area alongside the nav.

 

Check out - http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/business-branding/


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.

      Hello,
      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hello,
      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      http://www.myfit.cz/rozvrh/
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      http://www.myfit.cz/lekce/pilates/
      site with calendar :

      7 side with one event from the calendar :

      Hey team,
      Really simple question: where would I add code to a specific page header? I can see in the settings I can add code to the global header, but can't see how to do it for a single specific page. It's related to facebook pixel tracking
      Cheers

      Hey everyone
      I am very sorry if this question has a "deja vu"  taste but I have been looking for more than 2 hours a way to add a phone number in the top right corner of my header website.
      Before asking that, I have read many of the questions related to that subject, from hooks and action map to function.php and hooker plugin but I am very lost. Plus many links kindly given by some of you are now 404 pages
      Is there anyone willing to help me find the easiest way to add this number please ? 
      In advance, thank you
