Wanting to add Column gutters in ZenKit displays

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I would like to add some padding in my column gutters in my site using ZenKit with the Newstream2 template. Here are a few pages where you can see that the columns butt up against each other so that text from one column can touch text from a separate column:

gmf.cloudaccess.net/services/zenkit-testing-slideshow

gmf.cloudaccess.net/services/zenkit-testing-common

What are my options for doing this?

Thank you, Sean Carney

Does adding this do the trick?

#mainWrap #zenkit #k2ItemListSecondary .zenblock {padding:1em;}

hmm looking at the other page you want to use zero padding for top

so for the second page

#mainWrap #zenkit #k2ItemListPrimary .zenblock {padding: 0 1em;}

Thank you for your help on that. The idea worked perfectly. I did change the numbers slightly.

I am wondering if you might also have a trick for me to indent the text and intro text that appears below the images. I am attaching an image here to show that I used a little ruler to show that the text is right up against it's frame and I would love to add some 6 pixels or so to the left and probably the right side. Although I might add a bit more to the right side then the left side.

Can you give me a piece of CSS that would do that for these pages?

Thanks, Sean

You just need to add padding as required

#zenkit .zenkit-introtext {padding: 0 7px;}

something along these lines

The alginment of

#mainWrap .links
#mainWrap #zenkit .zenkit-more

might be more tricky as could impact other elements so you would need to test that carefully

Thanks for the explanation. I was just about to ask. The backup is running now. I will install shortly and let you know what I find. :-)

I installed it. But, I did not see the Template version increment in the Template manager. Still says version 1.0 and I also did not see any differences in the layout yet. Still looking.

But, what is it that I should be looking for?

Thanks, Sean

Was hoping the slideshow would display the same in browsers other than Chrome

Yes, I have cleared the browser cache and still see the problem.

I just attached two images so you can see the difference.

I uploaded the file again. but it still does not increment the Template number.

You now have access in another ticket to my FTP information and you are welcome to upload another version and play with it.
