Footer Columns Sidebar Customization

Recommended Posts

cerchris

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.

      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.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
