Hi Ranay,

Can I just check - why are you using the koan T3 version?

There is a buildr version which is much newer

bambootheme.com/showcase/apr16/home/koan - buildr version

Cheers

I am going to the buildr version just trying to get everything in place.. or close to place the menu I am looking at is the buildr one, I am pretty sure, the live site right now is the older Koan theme, I have really enjoyed using buildr and plan to move my main site over to it too.. if I can get all my kinks worked out.

My problem is I work with really impatient people they don't like to give me alot of time when i switch it over. So trying to get it really close to in place

With the T3

You have space reserved on the left for the logo span4
and the menu is span8

Are you looking to remove all of that space and leave the logo where it is now e.g. below the menu?

but I am not using the T3 at least I don't think I am.. I think I feel confident I am using buildr, I will create a ticket and let you look at it there and give you more info on on what I am trying to do.

Hi

I'm looking at www.rpsb.us/THS_rpsb/index.php

If I view the source code I see T3 scripts

Ok look at it now.. (of course colors are not correct.. ) see how my menu font is too big and it isn't centered and it maybe something I have done with my slideshow making it not centered

hmm right ok

You are using colourshift2 for the site

Are you going to be utilising the different colour links as I think a different buildr template might work better

Colourshift2 has a width assigned to individual links and you have a lot of links which is causing a problem for you

Well the schools colors are red and black so I have to stay close that palette red, black and white that is why I did the red buttons. Now I haven't gotten all my links set up just yet. and I think I have hidden the main content grids which I probably need to bring back.

I am open to suggestions about other templates though, I don't feel I am so for gone in colourshift that I have t stick to it.

Right I would probably switch to

bambootheme.com/showcase/apr16/home/koan

As the link blocks in colourshift2 are a problem for you given the width you need for all the links

You would be best uninstalling colourshift2 unfortunately if you decide to use Koan (inside buildr)

Whichever template you use the number of text links will mean a high break point value where the menu collapses

Nice one :)

Tables have a place but they do struggle on phones and if a fixed width value is added to them
