after the update sites on dms, the column will not work. If I pull a column by drag and drop in the header, there is only the icon of the displayed column. There are no column created.
what can I do? I use the child theme by nick and before the "base theme"

Hello,

 

Can you provide us with a screenshot?

 

Did you update from 0.9.6 to 1.0.2?

 

I cannot see the site. What's the URL?

 

When you add the Column section, do you see a dashed line box and a little pencil when you hover over it?

Hi Rob,
sorry for the late reply, have a lot of work :-)
Update is ok. All plugins are uninstalled to test. Ops, just see that the page is not available since yesterday. I have the new page lines dms theme installed additionally. since the site is not accessible and the screen is white. I have the DMS using FTP folder is now renamed at least the old system and the website page lines accessible again.
 
I am beginning to despair ... How can I update to dms?

Hi,

 

When you say you drag a column to your template, are you referring to this - http://cl.ly/image/3M0h193j021n

 

If so, this is a layout section, layout sections are there to create your layout and have no other function, they include only one option called Styling Classes, which allows you to add class(es) to that column for unique styling. However, there main purpose is to house other sections such as Masthead, Hero etc...

 

You can decrease/increase the width, meaning you can add more than one column per row depending on the width you select.

 

If this isn't what you were referring to, would it be possible to provide more information as well as screenshots of what it is you're dragging and dropping please.

hehe no problem, its easy to confuse us, we both bald although mine is by choice.

 

When you add a Column Layout Section to your Header area, you should have something like this:

From here, you can add any section you like for example, I add the Hero section - http://cl.ly/image/0X25001o142r

      Hi to all,
      I always have this problem and I'm unhappy with the fix I usually apply for aligning columns at the bottom (see attached).
      For example: I use two text boxes side by side. Both text columns have a background colour. Text column 1 has 200 words and text column 2 has 300 words.
      How do I easily get them to align at the bottom without using a min-height declaration? I want to get text column 1 with 200 words to fit the height of text column 2 if that makes sense?
      Thanks for any help on this!
      Cheers,
      James

      Hello!
      I am getting pretty tired of things that does not work as it should in DMS. Now it is impossible to have a two column footer with quickslider as one of the items. Take a look here http://pehjaproduction.se/kulingen/
      I have tried three column, two column, no column. nothing works.

      Hi,
      I am trying to change the right side column background color. I tried using Chrome's inspect element and was not able to find the right css to change. 
      Below is an example of a two-column page. I would like to change the right side background column color.
      http://travelblogfest.com/free-online-photography-courses-for-beginners/dslr-camera/what-is-aperture-priority/
      I'm trying to make the column look like this on the right side, http://www.pagelines.com/showcase/ Where the background is gray and shows leaderboard and trending sites.

      Hi there,
       
      This is a "phantom" problem we've had on our site since we upgraded to DMS2 eight or nine months ago.
       
      We have a large site and depend on the template system for almost all of our pages/posts. Typically it is a two column setup, with one containing the post loop/breadcrumbs, and the other column containing a widgetizer that displays the appropriate sidebar. Seemingly at random, the entire sidebar column will disappear from a template, leaving only the main column with post loop. We've never been able to isolate the problem or duplicate it. Sometimes, it happens to templates applied to pages that we haven't edited or even visited in quite some time. Sometimes, it will happen to templates we edited/published in the previous few days.
       
      I've never felt moved to post about this because the issue is impossible to predict, but it just now happened before my very eyes.
       
      I had just published a page that did not have a template applied. I wanted to apply the template we use on our "about us" pages, but I wasn't sure what it was called. I clicked on a page that had the template in question applied. All elements were present, the template was fine. Once I had the template name, I navigated back and loaded the correct template on the newly-edited page. When the page refreshed, the template had loaded without the sidebar column. I stopped and switched to Firefox (where I was logged out) and found that all pages within that template suddenly had no sidebar.
       
      I understand that this is an issue that is hard to provide support for, given that I've never been able to replicate it at will. Is this a problem others have had? Were there any plugins identified as a potential culprit? We have no cache plugins installed.
       
      Thanks!

      Hi! I have custom css to add a white background to all columns. 
      I have just a few columns that I would like to change the color on, 
      however, when I add changes to the inline css, or try to make a 
      new class for that specific column, it is adding my custom CSS
      "behind" the white background.
       
      (I know this because it sticks 
      out of the bottom, under where border/shadow is set up on the 
      normal column css) 
       
      Is there any way to change that background color on just a few
      different columns, and keep the rest with my current custom 
      css? 
       
      Or, as an alternative, is there a way to create a second kind of 
      column all together? or some other way?
