Column Layout?

Recommended Posts

Wondering how a person would layout the drag & drop sections to get a full height column in the right 1/3 of a page?

 

IDEA: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3tllkxdml69ti9q/BoxLayout.png

 

Yes - I see the "Grid System" but the idea is to use SECTIONS, not just to format static content.

 

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Chris,

 

Looking at your image I would say put everything from fixed nav - contentbox into the header or page template area.

 

Then the boxes sections will need to go into the content-area part of the template. You could either set this up using a sidebar with a widget in for the third box, or by using a plugin like wp-boxer to create all three of the box sets. Then using the pagelines grid shortcodes (http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/grid-shortcodes/) you can spilt the content-area up into the various columns.


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.

      Hi, I am trying to figure out how to create columns where the text flows into the next column, like the attached, and am flummoxed. Does anyone have any ideas?

      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.

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      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
