Getting two new sidebars to line up horizontally

Recommended Posts

daragh

Hi,

 

I've added two sidebars [Homepage Left SB and Homepage Right SB] using the following code (just showing the code for the left one...):

http://www.kennedycarr.com/test-page/

<?php
/*
	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, $this->settings['description']);
	register_sidebar($setup);
}
	
   function section_template() {	
		pagelines_draw_sidebar($this->id, $this->name);
	}

Happily, both work perfectly.

 

My issue is this: I cannot get them to line up side by side - the second one seems to insist on appearing UNDER the first one.

 

I've tried some CSS with limited success as follows:

#homepage-left-sb .widget-pad{
float:left;
background-color:#99FFFF;
width:30%
}

#homepage-right-sb .widget-pad{
float:right;
background-color:#FFFF99;
width:30%;
}

#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;
}

It does put the right one to the right of the screen, but again, it's to the right AND UNDER the first one. What I want is them to appear side by side, one on the left, one on the right at the same vertical starting point.

 

I did post this in the iBlogPro form but feel it's not necessarily an iBlogPro issue, more of a Pagelines issue and I'll mark that one as closed / resolved just to avoid duplication. Also I felt that this is more likely to be seen more quickly here. Apologies if this causes any issue - I'm under pressure here.

 

Very much hoping that there's some simple CSS I've just not spotted.

 

Any help very much appreciated.

For completeness, the previous topic I'd started on this is here:

 

http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/32847-have-successfully-added-two-new-sidebars-cant-get-them-to-line-up-horizontally/

 

but I've marked it as resolved to avoid duplication.

 

Again, any help on this hugely appreciated - seems such a simple thing to want to do - and yet...

Hi there, I've answered this on your previous thread as I saw that one in the queue before this one.


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.

      Hello,
      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,
      Anthony

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site

      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 ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      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 ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      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 ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      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 ::
      http://www.sinclairaia.com/
      http://www.kristihanson.com/
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!
