How can I get this type of text alignment?

Recommended Posts

Hello:

 

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?

 

Cheers, R

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.

      How can I get support on pagelines DMS? The product isn't that old and my skeleton themes aren't working and I can't get support in the same way?

      I have a number of legacy websites that are running on the above version of Pagelines DMS, where the template has stopped working. I am using a skeleton theme to all of them. What do I need to do to rectify this.

      Hi,
      I am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.
       
      Thanks

      It is with much sorrow that I have to say goodbye to a product that had such great potential.
      There has been no acknowledgement from anybody as to whether or not Pagelines will continue
      or even if they are going to hand it over to someone that would keep the project going. I can't
      keep shelling out money every month to a company that either no longer exists or has chosen to 
      abandoned their customer base. Well it has been a nice 5 years.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?
