How to Modify sidebar width?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am trying to figure out how to widen my right sidebar in Platform 1.4.3 so that I can place some ads there. I have tried changing the width in the settings tab (now set to 350px), and while that changes the width of the sidebar's appearance, the content I am trying to upload will still not fit. I need an allotment of at least 258 px, so according to my settings tab, I should have enough space. I'm wondering if there's a default alloted space that I need to manually change somewhere? Here's a link to the site:

Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm a novice with this stuff, so please be clear in your instructions.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Platform is a deprecated product, no longer supported in these forums.

 

You should now purchase or use DMS.  Limited support is available for the Lite (free) edition, so if you need help you'll want the basic plan, which is only $10 a month.

 

Sidebar width is controlled by settings or CSS.

 

I'm afraid that's the extent of the support I can give you, this once.

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::

      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hi, so I have an issue that seems specific to iPhones.
      I have 2 "Menus" in a container both set to 6 columns (see image A) - I have added the classes .menuleft and .menuright
      When this gets to 768px and the mobile menu kicks in, both sections revert to 12 columns (or 100% width) so the 2 menus are stacked on top of each other. I want them to remain inline so that they look like image B - so need to control the section width.
      I have added the following CSS:
      .menuleft[class*='pl-col-'] {
        max-width: 22%;
        margin-left: 3%;
        padding-right: 0em;
        padding-left: 0em;
        float: left !important;
      }
      .menuright[class*='pl-col-'] {
        max-width: 74%;
        margin-right: 1%;
        padding-right: 0em;
        padding-left: 0em;
        float: left !important;
      }
      This works well for Android phones, on all online emulators and in Chrome mobile inspector, but does not seem to work on iPhones. I don't have an iPhone so it's very hard to test. Any help would be appreciated. The site is currently live at quitegoodcards.com.
      PS Is there a way to target the li items in the mobile menu toggle (image C) that does not effect the desktop li? There doesn't seem to be a separate class to apply.
      Thanks in advance

      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!
