Basic Column alignment

Recommended Posts

sheilahoff

I'm not new to DMS. I'm starting a new site in DMS2 which is of course new. It's currently staging at http://sheila.wpstagecoach.com. This seems a very basic question but when I put a post loop of 8 columns I should then be able to have a primary sidebar of 4 columns (total 12) and have them align on the top. I have tried everything I can think of and they won't stay in the same row. I've used separate sections and I've tried a 2-column section and dropping in the elements. I've tried checking and unchecking the force new row button. What am I missing?

 

Also, when I make a custom section is there a way to add that section and then edit it on another page w/o changing the original? How does one best work with this? I made a section for the bottom of the homepage and then added it to another page. I wanted to change just the iboxes on it but ended up removing the iboxes from the original. I suppose there's a way to dis-associate them?!

 

Thanks,

Sheila

Hi Sheila 

 

Good to see you moving to DMS2 :) 

 

could you screenshot the column setup and i will take a look how you are doing this. 

 

If you want a number of columns - say 3, you cnan just add the 3 column layout - the 3 columns width then consists of 12 total columns. 3 columns of 4. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Thanks Martin. At the moment I seem to have resolved this. If it recurs I'll do a little video. No telling what was going on!

Ok thank - only thing i can think is you might have offset on the column which pushes the other columns left ot righht one and then forces to a new row if wider than twelve columns + the offset.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
