sidebar 2 issue

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

Hi - I have a problem with sidebar 2 in the buildr responsive. It is too wide and is clashing with the main content.

The site is swanseainbloom.co.uk homepage and I'm running J 3.7.4.


I can't see how to fix it - has anyone any ideas?

Thanks

Ian

I can make it look better by playing with the margins:

.TDB-tweetavatar-left .TDB-tweet-align-left
{
margin-left:75px;
}

.TDB-tweet-avatar img
{
margin-left:25px;
}

But really it should be contained within the sidebar properly...

Hi Ian,

You have this style in the custom.css file

.zg-col
{
margin:0px;
}

If you remove that the template space is added back

Hi Paul - that's fixed it :-)

I must have had a reason for putting that change in, but I forget why now.

And why couldn't I see that in Chrome or Firebug?

Thanks for the help...

Hi Ian,

Tricky one to spot I had to run through your custom css file and look for the style that would be problematic

Hi Paul

I had a similar problem on sidebar 1. I've had to reduce the width of the images to stop them butting right up to the text on the right ( I know they should be properly sized anyway, which I haven't yet done).

I've just had a look through custom.css but nothing jumps out at me.

Any ideas on this one?

thanks again

Ian

Hi Ian,

Try something like

#sidebar-1 p {padding-right: 1em;}

This is assuming all images are inside a p tag

Hi Paul - thanks for this, I'll give it a whirl. Surprised there isn't automatic padding as with .zg-col.

Slightly spooky to think of you dredging through all my mistakes and sloppy coding in custom.css - I'll have to be a bit tidier.

It may be a while before I get back to you - grandchildren due on Wednesday so we're clearing the decks and removing the cobwebs. And the rest. I'll even have to iron a shirt!

I really do appreciate the help Paul over all these years, and your patience :-)

I could do with some help on another matter entirely unrelated. Would it be out of order for you to email me at removed?

Thanks again,

Ian

Hi Ian,

Not too much css in there so no worries on that

Best of luck with the shirt and of course best wishes to your daughter :)

I have emailed you
