Custom Columnizer Columns

Recommended Posts

hauserjo

Hi Folks

 

I have an other (hopefully simple) question, where I just don't get the clue.

Added a Columnizer into my DMS global footer and linked to my 'Pirmary Sidebar'. This sidebar contains 4 widgets, which I want to display side by side (like the default view of the Columnizer). But the widgets are always stacked above each other, instead of aside, although the 'Number of Grid Columns seems me correctly' set.

 

My simple question: How do I bring Columnizer to show my widgets like the default view (4 widgets, side-by-side)?

 

Thanks for any hint.

 

Kind regards

Jonas

Hi hauserjo - I'm sorry you're having problems but I'm unable to reproduce the problem on my end. I just went through the process of dragging the Columnizer section into my footer, selecting the Primary Sidebar, leaving the default 3 column grid and then I dragged a few widgets into that sidebar and got the 4 column layout as expected. So it does seem like you're doing everything correctly. Could you try removing that section completely and starting the process over? Also want to make sure you've updated to 1.0.4.


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

Hi Jake

 

Thanks also for this response. I quickly investigated on a second installation. There, Columnizer was working ok. So I compared the differences. In my not working installation, the first widget is the 'RSS' widget. If I remove it, Columnizer works, if I add it again (as first widget!), it breaks the layout to one single column. So it's perhaps related to the RSS widget position & output.

 

Anyway I appreciate your help, it pointed me toward the right direction.

 

Regards

Jonas

hauserjo - Thanks so much for the followup. After reading your response I too did a little re-testing and you have definitely stumbled upon something a bit wonky when putting that RSS widget in the first position. Not sure if it's fixable on our end due to it being a WP feature, but I'll let our developers know.

      Hello
      Am upgrading a site made in DMS2 to Pl5. Have run into several snags I didn't anticipate from DMS sections the client liked and was used to in DMS not being available in Pl5.
      Currently trying to recreate the "Columnizer" I used for the footer in cassClayton.com. Using the "sitemap footer" section, however that gives options for 3 menus plus a text ares (plus some socials and copyright text). Well I need the second 2 columns to NOT be menus, but rather the latest Posts and Comments.
      Will appreciate some leads how to make this happen. Perhaps there is a different footer section that's ideal for this? Or should I simply drag a couple Container sections and Text sections to do this?  Also, kindly point me to a reference for shortcodes for "recent posts" and "comments".
      Also, I loved the "RapidTabs" section for sidebars. Is there a replacement for that? Again, I need to find shortcodes for posts/comments, so any leads are much appreciated.
      thanks

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      Hello
      I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
      Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.

      Hi there,
      I'd like to display the date [powerloop_date] in another (german) format, but changes via "Settings > General > Date Format" don't effect anything in the postloop-section. Date is still being displayed as "Juni 17, 2015" (language is ok but not the format I've defined in the WP settings).  How can I change this?
      Thank you!
