I would like to create a custom column class/id that allows me to individually style a column layout. I would like to have a standard column class/id and then have the custom class to allow no padding/margins alternative background colours etc. Is this possible?

It is possible. You would need to edit the template files directly along with add the CSS to your custom.css. However, editing that many templates might lead to headaches updating the theme in the future. What I would suggest is using a combination of the existing body, div and column ID/class names if at all possible
If you could give us an example page we could provide specific code.

That would be fine, I was trying to find individual classes or id’s for the columns but could only see that the first column was different and following columns had the same class.
I am trying to style the bottom three columns.

Nathaniel, great-looking design! :-)
I’m a new user of the Choices theme and just wanted to ask you about two things…
– What’s the width of your landing page image? Did you upload it to the Slider section even though you are just using one image or did you upload it to a Page Content section?
– How did you add the ‘Chartered accountants with an all round view’ incl the Find out More button? I see that element in the demo but haven’t been able to identify where it’s placed.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the delay in responding. After some playing around, I came up with this solution. If you add the columns using the Template Builder then there’s automatic class name added to each column called flex_column_#. The # of course is replaced with 1, 2, and 3 accordingly.
In case you haven’t used the Template Builder yet, here’s the instructions:
1) Go to Choices > Template Builder
2) Select the “Frontpage” template
3) Under “Add Elements” select Columns then click the down arrow on the grey tab
4) Set your options accordingly (in your case I would use Direct Text input then enter your shortcode info)
5) Click Save All Changes
Let me know if this doesn’t work or you need help. I’m going to tag myself to this thread so I don’t lose it again.
