How do I do this with my background?

Recommended Posts

Hey. I am reasonably new to Pagelines and DMS, so go easy on me!

 

I want my website to have one big block of slideable content in the middle, while also having static non-moving columns on both the right and left side, that go the full length of the screen.  

Just like this site...

How do I do this?

Is there a plug-in that does it?

I downloaded some wordpress plugs, but they are very simple, this seems a bit more techy.

 

If someone could give me specifics in laymans terms, I would be much obliged :)

Hi,

 

For something like that you will first want to create a two column layout.

 

Left hand column

 

Add a slider section or plugin

For the content/news/features etc.. you can either use the PostLoop section, a plugin such as MiniLoops or Special Recent Posts.

 

Right hand column

 

Add a Widgetized area such as Sidebar section or Widgetizer and then add your widgets.

Danny.

Hey! I definately know how to do these columns (the ones that are slideable and contain content) - it's the unmoving background parts to the far left and right of these that I don't understand how to set up.

These parts don't move, nor do they respond to the slider. They are just full blocks - 1900px long by 250px wide.

They stay completely still, and remain proportional to the page at all times. They have no sliders or widgets - as far as I can see. This is what I want.

 

I would like to use this space for advertising on my site - and would like to set these portions up for that.

I cannot work out how it is done.

Can you help me out? :)

The left and right area is just a background image, which you can see here - http://i.i.tsatic-cdn.net/takeovers/itm_themes/shellstage.jpg

 

If you wish to use those areas for ads, then you will need to use hooks to add them to the left or right hand side, some addition styling may be required.

 

You can find out more about hooks here - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/hooks

Please be aware that hooks are considered an advanced form of customization and we do not provide support.
