columns and what works and what doesn't..

If I have a section with an 8/12 column and a 4/12 column for the sidebar can I place another 2 column section UNDER the 8/12 column to split the content?

 

Or do you have to drop sections such as text/media boxes under the 8/12 column and adjust the width of those?

 

Or should you create a new full width section and then add the columns.

 

It looks like the two-column section wants to work and it comes up with the page refresh but nothing actually appears in the visual editor.

Hi,

 

Not exactly sure what you're referring to. Therefore, would it be possible to provide an example or concept image of the layout you're trying to create.

I have the same question. What "nfp 1900" means is this:

How do these sections work. Since dragging and dropping them in the page does not make any visual difference.

I'm not sure if you can add sections within a section.  You probably can with the columns.  That said, the columns are simply a way of implementing the Responsive Grid.  That can have nested rows.

 

I've done it on http://dev.epicurus.com/home4

 

All I did was follow the guidance here:  http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/responsive-grid

I found that you can't have a column 1/12 wide , the minimum is 2/12 so in total 6 columns across (seems generous...). 

 

I was able to have two rows of columns in one section (I'm sure this could go on, I haven't tested it). You can then stack as many sections as required into each column. 

 

Dragging the last column into a row doesn't seem to work, it jumps out of position even if you set it to 2/12.  But cloning in the same row does work to get the column to line up in the correct position.

I understand how to make culomns by using codes. But what I do not understand is how to use these sections. The link you provided does not say anything about these sections.

OK, so I understand you guys correctly, you want to use 2 Columns section layout and then add multiple sections to each column. For example,

 

Column 1          Column 2

iBox                  Masthead
iCallout             Hero
TextBox            iBox

 

Is this correct ?

 

If so, you can do this by simply dragging and dropping the sections above or under the sections in each column.

      Hi everyone,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
