How can I get this type of text alignment?

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.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::
      http://www.sinclairaia.com/
      http://www.kristihanson.com/
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!
