Recommended Posts

What is the best way to create a typical magazine style layout home page, so many sectioned areas with diff content.

Using the section area with the diff column sections within that.  ?

Will that rendor ok on the various browsers, or am I missing something, eg I need to do some coding to get that type of layout?

Thoughts ?

See attached sample 

 

Thanks 

 

signed - looking at doing a redo of what Ive started !

Hi J,

 

This type of layout is where DMS can really shine and make it easy on you! Yes, I think your best bet is to pull columns into a section area and from that point, you can size the columns and place various sections in each according to your needs. You should be able to achieve most of the functionality you're looking for without coding, perhaps you'll want to tweak some of the look and feel elements with some CSS but your layout will render well in various browsers. Keep us posted on your progress!


Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Thanks Jake always nice to get validation before a redo,
