Columns on Corporate Theme

I am wondering when the update for changing the size of columns in the corporate theme will be available, or at least if it is being worked on. Would also love to know if anyone has a quick fix for this issue.

As you can see on my site, the three columns are not sized correctly for my purposes and I can't figure out how to change their sizing. I tried changing it in the code, but it just made the third column go down to a second row.

Also wondering how progress is coming on child pages showing up in drop down menus?

Thanks,

Kristina

    First let me say I LOOVE these themes!! However with all the recent BuddyPress changes the columns in the Fun theme are also starting to feel a bit cramped too (particularly with these threaded activity). I would like to be able to make the center column on Fun about 10-15 px thinner. Is there an update coming or can you point me to the right direction in the css files?

    Thanks for the the excellent work!

    @comerecommended

    the bp-corp 1.1.5 already added the navigation dropdown for pages.
    as for the 3 column modify...it is not possible if you also using the news articles
    block entire it has a fixed width...since majority user still love to used the news section, we decided to skip the column width manipulation but still here's some patch you can apply

    update the theme to latest 1.1.5 and download the attachment and replace the home.php and home-sidebar.php..the patch should make it a 3 column same
    width etc...but news article will not be avaialble.

    @DerekBolden
    you should be able to edit the width in _inc/css/base.css

    .left-column ()
    .right-column()

    it used % css to control so...you can edit like 30% left and 64% right vice versa..with 3% padding on both side...so you only have 94% width to fill..hehe..hope you catch the drift:slight_smile:

    Hi, I updated my theme to corporate 1.1.5 and download the attachment everything worked fine and I think the improvements are great.

    However, the "About" page appeared off to the center instead to the far right side. In short, the About page on top page was moved to the middle instead of keeping its original location to the right side.

    Any suggestion?

    hi comerecommended

    still seeing 1.1.4 in your stylesheet.
    update to bp 1.1.5 should fixed it...remove and replace all files (recommended) and re-replace the attachment above...

    of coz make backup of your current theme first..if you have
    any custom edit so you can refer to later on

    using standard install of BP-Corp theme on WP - which looks nice without any hacks.. so far

    homepage layout is great - loving the 3 columns

    however.. slight confusion regarding the difference btw the right column on the blog / post pages and the BBPress/BP pages

    post pages are great - mediumbar.png width column works fine - http://www.heathside.info/2010/03/31/welcome-to-heathside/

    i would like the right column on forum / group pages to be the same width as the right column on post pages

    forum and group pages currently call shortbar.png sized sidebar into what seems to be an odd-width column - and i lose content off to the right of the column - http://www.heathside.info/forums/

    pls forgive any inappropriate descriptors - sidebars, columns - hope you can see see / understand my general challenge..

    BTW i am not an experienced PHP / CSS type.. this is my first attempt at an integrated WP / Forum site and would seriously appreciate any assistance on this

    thanks

    hi stevemachin
    yeap..the column differ between blog and directory are intended to be like that.
    since directory page tend to listing content and we make it a bit wider that blog and
    used small bar for sidebar.

    the widget usage on both blog sidebar and directory sidebar are different so it won't be a problem..
    just use a more simple widget in directory sidebar.

    also here a css hack to make the layout more divide and more separate.
    open _inc/css/custom.css - rename from custom-sample.css and enter this css code in.

    #custom #member-entry #directory-main {
    border-right:1px solid #DDDDDD !important;
    width:750px !important;
    }

    #custom .member-directory #sidebar {
    margin-right:10px;
    }

    cheers

    hi richie

    thanks for the feedback

    i like having different widgets in blog sidebar and directory sidebar - this is very useful

    it does look like the directory sidebar is the same width as the blog sidebar, with shortbar.png and the right hand side of the directory sidebar is pushed out of the screen of the main container

    is this simply because the width of the directory container is wider than the width of the post container?

    i want to run ad-squares in the directory sidebar - i have activated these so you can see the problem i have

    guess i need to make the directory width the same as a post and then use mediumbar.png in the directory sidebars?

    any pointers on css files / edits would be super-helpful.. as i said i am not a natural born coder and just getting to grips with this stuff

    many thanks
