Have successfully added two new sidebars, can't get them to line up horizontally.

Recommended Posts






I've successfully setup up two new sidebars as shown on the above page. I'm trying to get them to line up beside each other horizontally but the second one seems to always start (vertically) after the end of the first one.


Pulling my hair out here...


Here's the CSS I've added:

/* main CSS moved to child theme - don't panic :-) */

#homepage-left-sb .widget-pad{

#homepage-right-sb .widget-pad{

#homepage-left-sb .fix:before , #homepage-left-sb .fix:after {
content:none !important;
clear:none !important;
#homepage-right-sb .fix:before , #homepage-right-sb .fix:after {
content:none !important;
clear:none !important;

I think the issue may be down to the .fix CSS parameter being globally applied; Firebug shows this:

.fix:after {

or it could one of the classes in here:

<section id="homepage-left-sb" class="container clone_1 section-homepage-left-sb fix">

Any pointers greatly appreciated!

I think I'm getting close to a solution:


If I change:

<section id="homepage-left-sb" class="container clone_1 section-homepage-left-sb fix">

to just

<section id="homepage-left-sb" class="">

It seems to resolve the issue. However, I'm not sure how to remove those. These sidebars were created using the following code uploaded to a child theme:

	Section: Homepage Left SB
	Author: PageLines
	Author URI: http://www.pagelines.com
	Description: Shows full width widgetized sidebar.
	Class Name: HomepageLeftSB
	Edition: pro
	Workswith: templates, footer, morefoot
	Persistant: true

 * Homepage Left SB
 * @package PageLines Framework
 * @author PageLines
class HomepageLeftSB extends PageLinesSection {

	* Section template.
function section_persistent() {
	$setup = pagelines_standard_sidebar($this->name, $this->settings['description']);
   function section_template() {
		 pagelines_draw_sidebar($this->id, $this->name);

So I'm wondering is there a way to set up those sidebars by modifying the code to NOT include the other CSS items in the line beginning with <section>


Or is this a bad approach?

Hi there, if you're on the standalone edition of IBlogPro4 then unfortunately there were no options as to where the sidebar could be positioned or duplicate sidebars like there was in the IBlogPro5 child theme for the framework. This is because the theme is much older and didn't use the drag and drop system.


We can't officially advise making edits directly to the core files, this would be at your discretion. But as the theme is an older theme now and won't receive any updates this will probably be your best option if you wish to stick with the theme.


Unfortunately these standalone themes are no considered legacy themes and will receive no further, we'd advise moving up to the latest PageLines DMS system in order to be able to successfully implement and position additional sidebars using the drag and drop live editor.

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.

I'm not on iBlogPro4, I'm on 5.


Again, any pointers would help. I've found that if I add the following CSS:

.fix:after {
 	content: "";

It does EXACTLY what I want in terms of the two paragraphs, but breaks other sections of the site.


I then tried:

#homepage-left-sb .fix:before, #homepage-left-sb .fix:after, #homepage-right-sb .fix:before, #homepage-right-sb .fix:after {
    content: "" !important;
    display: inline !important;
    line-height: 0 !important;

to apply the class to the new html IDs specifically, but it doesn't work.


So close I think, yet so frustrated. Something simple I'm missing?


Thanks in advance.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?
