Adding border messes up sidebar position

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add a border between the left sidebar and the main column and I'm finding it impossible. Here's some details with the problem...

 

If I add a border on the left sidebar, on it's left or right side, the whole sidebar gets pushed underneath the main column. I'm guessing because it's too wide. Because if I add a margin on the left sidebar I get the same result. Whereas padding works fine-

 

If I add a border to the left or right of the main column, the left sidebar is pushed down.

 

The right sidebar seems to stay intact no matter what I do to it. And changing the right sidebar doesn't effect the left sidebar.

 

Would appreciate any advice, thanks.

You can reduce the width of the sidebar to accommodate the extra space needed for the border. You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS/LESS). To find the Custom CSS you need, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please review this entire documentation and follow the instructions: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css. For help with the width attribute, please see these instructions: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_dim_width.asp.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

      I'm trying to make a visible border around the entirety of a client's site.  Example on some other site here:
      http://www.makeyourvisionreal.com/movement

      So it is around the Title, Menu, and Content Area.  I'm having a bit of difficulty with this on pagelines, using the Framework theme. It's slightly more complex because the site has a "landing page" that doesn't need the border. Much like this homepage
      http://www.makeyourvisionreal.com/
       
      Right now I'm using a content width of 80%, and fullscreen.  But maybe thats not the best way to do it.  
       
      So, with the #site id, I can hit the whole area on most of the site, but I'm not sure how I can remove it for just one page.
      #site { border:1px solid #ccc; margin: 100px 5% 5% 50px; } anyone have any suggestions?  Maybe I need to go make a child template, not sure?  Thanks!

      I am having an issue with the size of the font in a text box widget on my sidebar. It has me completely baffled because I have two text widgets on my sidebar and the other one is displaying perfectly. 
      The sole difference between the two is the amount of text in the widget, but that can't be the problem.
      My site is: loveandnudes.com and the text widgets are on the right side at the top. 
      I have duplicated the one with the issue and I am fiddling with it right now to see if I can find a solution. But I would love any suggestions. I though CSS would do the trick, but either I tried the wrong thing - or I put it into the wrong place.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi,
      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that? 
      Thanks!

      I am working  on a PL5 site that uses a IDX feed plugin that includes templates for that individual plugin (ex - a property listings template, a single property template, etc.) However, when I edit the Pagelines Content area to also feature a sidebar it will not actually save or apply to any of the other property pages. Are there any know issues with the templates and hierarchy? It appears to be defaulting to read-width and I can't find any way to override this setting.
      Here is a link in case that is helpful to see: http://getreadyforwow.com/ihf/idx/mls-20649468-99_sunny_st_newport_beach_ca_92663
      Is there anything I can provide to you that may be helpful in solving this issue?
