How can I get this type of text alignment?

Recommended Posts




I'm wondering if I can achieve the attached kind of layout with an existing Pagelines section? I want the headline on the left almost in its own column and the smaller text on the right. I guess I can use 2 boxes, but seems messy. I thought maybe to apply some sort of bootstrap formatting, but not sure if an existing type of section can do this instead?


Any answers welcome. 


Cheers, Russell

Hello hrachovec 


You could achieve this very easily and responsively using the PageLines grid, a completely responsive grid system that contains 12 columns, or “spans.”


The guide is here http://support.pagelines.me/docs/miscellaneous/grid-system/

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi Martin:


OK, thanks. As a developer I get how to do the Pagelines grid, but that seems to involve hard coding. I'm comfortable with that, but I think my clients might find that tricky. I'll work around the layout issue. 


Thanks for the reply. 


Kind regards, Russell

Hey Jake:


Thanks. I've put 2 banners in for these pieces of content. I can manually get the headline in a left column and then float the text in a right column, but I think this might break when the browser is smaller or in mobile view. I noticed in the settings for each Banner, there's an option to 'Configure the padding and arrangement of banner text', but it's not clear how to configure this. Can I arrange a headline to the left and body text to the right?

Hi there,


In the banner section you can either arrange the text to the left/right and the image to the opposite ect. Unfortunately the banner meta won't allow the title of the section to be offset against the main text etc. You could make adjustments to the main text using css to give the impression it's indented by adjusting the margin on one side.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.
