Footer Columns Sidebar Customization

Recommended Posts

Hi There

 

http://thelearningroom.co.nz/?page_id=23

 

Please see attached file for a visual of what I am trying to achieve. Wanting to use the "footer Columns Sidebar" section to create a footer that uses 6 columns to show all main page nav links (the nav menu titles are not correct and not matching to the main nav top menu as they have been changed since creating the layout visual, but it gives the idea) with their sub menu items, and a sign up form to the right.

 

In the widgets section I have used "custom menu widgets" to generate display of all the links in on the site. I then used a "text" widget in the 6th column to get the sign up form in there.

 

My problem is that I don't seem to be able to customize individual columns with css, they all have a selector class of :

.ppfull .pp6

I am wanting to alter the width and padding of each column, especially the sign up form and make sure this sits to the right of the footer. Can I achieve a footer layout shown in the attached image using "footer Columns Sidebar"? Or does this require hooks? Or am i best to find a plugin that could do this for me?

 

Many thanks

Hi,

 

If you want to achieve the layout that you have on that concept image, I wouldn't use the Foot Columns section. I would use either the ContentBox or Full Width Sidebar (along with a text widget) and use the PageLines grid to achieve my layout.

However way you look at it though, it will require considerable custom CSS, for that kind of footer.

      In the footer of my website, I can't find where Leasing is located. I have to remove it.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      }
       
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?
      Thanks

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.
