Recommended Posts

Trying to do two things in my layout.

 

#1. Resize my right sidebar to be 460px width (currently it is 320px).

 

#2. I have made a smaller logo, which i want to be on the same line as a leaderboad ad unit that is 728*90 px. Logo on the left and this ad unit on the right, all of this just above the nav bar, as little white space as possible above and below.

 

Thanks guys.

Mike

Hi there, in Platform go to the PageLines Settings panel > Layout editor. Scroll down and you'll see a layout window where you can drag the width of the sidebar to the desired size by clicking on the blue line and dragging it to the left or right. http://screencast.com/t/cURGqEyFg

 

The remove the margins/padding and reduce the white space between the sections you'll need to use some css. Using a web inspector like Chrome Dev tools or Firebug you'll need to inspect the page to find out where the padding is being applied, you can then overrule this with css to remove it. See the following link and scroll down to near the bottom, the sections 'how to use css inspection tools' and examples underneath to see an overview of this in more depth - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/


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.

James, thanks so much for the speedy reply (on MLK no less). When I go to the PlatformPro Settings -> Layout Editor i don't see any area where i can drag the columns to a different size or change the width...i see this (Attached).

Hi there,

 

Hmm thats strange, the layout editor is jquery based so it will be one of the first things to break if there is conflicting code from another plugin or script. If you have any third party plugins installed, try disabling them, if you have any custom scripts inserted remove them and then clear the cache and review the page to see if the editor comes back to life. Check to see if you're able to drag the sidebar in and out to adjust size, also test to see if you're able to click in the side bar pixel figure field below and adjust the figure by typing in the pixel value.

      I am having an issue with the size of the font in a text box widget on my sidebar. It has me completely baffled because I have two text widgets on my sidebar and the other one is displaying perfectly. 
      The sole difference between the two is the amount of text in the widget, but that can't be the problem.
      My site is: loveandnudes.com and the text widgets are on the right side at the top. 
      I have duplicated the one with the issue and I am fiddling with it right now to see if I can find a solution. But I would love any suggestions. I though CSS would do the trick, but either I tried the wrong thing - or I put it into the wrong place.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi,
      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that? 
      Thanks!

      I am working  on a PL5 site that uses a IDX feed plugin that includes templates for that individual plugin (ex - a property listings template, a single property template, etc.) However, when I edit the Pagelines Content area to also feature a sidebar it will not actually save or apply to any of the other property pages. Are there any know issues with the templates and hierarchy? It appears to be defaulting to read-width and I can't find any way to override this setting.
      Here is a link in case that is helpful to see: http://getreadyforwow.com/ihf/idx/mls-20649468-99_sunny_st_newport_beach_ca_92663
      Is there anything I can provide to you that may be helpful in solving this issue?
