Columnizer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'd like to edit Columnizer. I wasn't able to 'recreate' it using widgets, so I prefer to use the original configuration. The only think I'd like to change is the text (headings, mostly), since my site is all in portuguese.

 

Where should I edit it?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Currently that content isn't completely configurable unfortunately. However, it is rather easy to recreate using widgets.

The Stay In Touch! widget can be replaced with a Text widget and use HTML to recreate it.

The Latest, can be a Recent Posts widget such as Special Recent Posts

Tags and Categories can be the default Wordpress tags and categories widget

More Info can a Text Widget.

Special Recent posts won't show round thumbnails or the the excerpt as it is in the customizer. I've tried it. If I use the text widget I also don't think I'd know how to set the size of the headings (Tags. categories, recent posts...) Would it be possible?

I am more than sure that the Special Recent Posts plugin will display excepts when configured. In regards to round images, you will need to add custom CSS to the special recent posts widget.

That was what I was afraid about. Don't know enough about CSS to do such thing. :(

You will need to target the image using your browser and then inspect the thumb image. Then you can identify its class, and apply custom CSS.

To get a round circular image you can apply the following to your custom class, which should do the trick.

 

.border-radius: 99em;

      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-
       
      In my footer, I have a columnizer set up with a widgetizer in it.  The widgetized area contains one widget with two custom menus.  Everything works great except for the gray line under each menu item that spans the width of the set column (currently set at grid column for each widget-6).  The gray line also shows up under the images in my flipper box (under Flipper Meta, I have the code- -to remove the dates;  I also have a shortcode to remove the karma sitewide).  Is there someway to get rid of the gray lines?
       
      Thanks so much and have a great day.

      Hi,
       
      Background
      I notice the default columnizer section uses featured image thumbnails for recent posts and the gravitar image for recent comments.
       
      I like that effect and would like to use this default section using my own about content.
       
      Question
      Is there a way to edit the default columnizer about content? Or, how would I customize my own columnizer section to use feature images for recent posts and gravitars for recent comments?
       
      My install
      WordPress 3.9.1
      PageLines DMS 2.1.1 Pro
      Sidebar Manager Lite for my custom sidebars. 
       
      Attachments
      Screenshot from my dev site showing default columnizer section and custom columnizer section using same widgets. 
       
      Dev website
      The development website showing both columnizer sections can be viewed live at http://tropicscuba.lightningbasehosted.com/
       
      Thanks

      Good day all,
       
      I have added Columnizer to my footer and I have the default content by pagelines... On the 'Columnizer Configuration', I could see Select 'Widgetized Area' and the dropdown shows just the 'primary sidebar'. 
       
      Now my question;
       
      How can I create a new Widgetized Area being that the only widgetized area available is the 'primary sidebar'... I'll like to have an area called footer so I can drag in all the widgets i want in the footer into it.
       
      Thanks for the quick response.
