Hi. I have a content post/loop 8/12 and an iCallout 4/12. I'm trying to place the iCallout to the right of the Content Post/Loop but it won't seem to stick. I tried  changing the iCallout to 3/12 and that also won't work. See video clip:

Likewise, I tried inserting a 2-Column Section.  It works fine at 6/12 and 6/12, but when I reduce one to 4/12 and increase the other to 7/12, they split.  Is this a bug?

Hi,

 

Two create a two column layout, use the 2 Column section. Also not sure why you're using Offset and then increasing the size of the first column, doing so will push your second column down, as it did in the video.

onlineprofiler"] and @[member="Danny, thanks so much.  It's funny, I kept trying and nothing worked. When you both explained it, it made perfect sense.  :)

      Hi, I am trying to figure out how to create columns where the text flows into the next column, like the attached, and am flummoxed. Does anyone have any ideas?

      Hi to all,
      I always have this problem and I'm unhappy with the fix I usually apply for aligning columns at the bottom (see attached).
      For example: I use two text boxes side by side. Both text columns have a background colour. Text column 1 has 200 words and text column 2 has 300 words.
      How do I easily get them to align at the bottom without using a min-height declaration? I want to get text column 1 with 200 words to fit the height of text column 2 if that makes sense?
      Thanks for any help on this!
      Cheers,
      James

      For quite a while I have worked around a refresh issue but it seems quite convoluted and near impossible to explain to clients. According to a lesson in PagelinesAcademy, it is because of javascript but there must be a more elegant way to deal with this. Here are 2 scenarios:
      1) Custom CSS: I add a css style to custom css, then have to select Edit in a component, then click in 2 text boxes to get the Refresh icon in the tools pallet to show. I click Publish a couple times then Refresh and hope that the new CSS code is still there - half the time it is not, so I have to redo a couple times till the system keeps it. Your "Tip: Hit [Cmd⌘+Return] or [Ctrl+Return] to Preview Live" at top of CSS window does nothing on my Macbook Pro.
      2) Home page at: http://199.119.180.102/~harmhill/newsite/ has 2 columns for main template area. In larger right column, I need to add a 3 column above the WPloop and below the image, which are both in that right column. I can drag the 3col section to the right place and it says "Section Added! Refresh page to view." Have tried several ways to get the section to stay and refresh but nothing works! Using cmd-r (refresh) in Mac Chrome, not my trick above... can't get the 3col section to stay on refresh, so no way to add the 3 text boxes required next.
      So 2 questions:  1) what is best way to refresh a page and preserve CSS and sections added and 2) can you put a 3-col inside 1col of a 2-col?
      thanks

      Hi, I'd like to know if there is way to put the Hero box right under the column above it. The way it is now (see attached picture) has a lot of blank space. I can't seem to move it up a bit fo fill in this empty space.
