    When I place more than one widget in the Mainpage Column 1, it moves the second widget over to the column 2 ?!! Cheers M

    Hey,

    Have you enabled widgets for the other columns?

    Can you post a site link with the problem?

    Hi James, I have set the 1st to widget the 2nd to page and the third to page, you’ll see I have a text widget in the first one with some image links and a calendar, but the calendar and any other widget gets moved to the 2nd column!?

    Hey,

    I think this is a bug – I’ll report it to Kriesi.

    I already reported it to Kriesi. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or the concept of the mainpage widget area but I’m sure Kriesi will look into it.

    Any luck Dude? cheers M

    Kriesi didn’t report back yet. Maybe he never intended the widget column feature to be used for more widgets than one.

    Hi Dude, but that would mean you’d have a big white space under the widget column, with the next two columns full of content?!

    Kriesi needs to come back with some answers, or I guess I’ll need a refund and have to find another theme. I’ll have wasted alot of time.

    Cheers M

    Hey! Sorry for the late response!

    First of all let me clarify: this is not really a bug, the theme simply was never meant to display more than 1 element per column. Since out of the 3000 customers of Dispaly no one ever requested that feature we didnt add it. Luckily its really easy to do it yourself with just 2 lines of code:

    open kclass_display_box.php in your framework/classes folder.

    change line 82 which reads:


    if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar($this->widgetname.' '.$counter)){}

    to


    echo'<div class="box box_small box'.$counter.'">'."n";
    if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar($this->widgetname.' '.$counter)){}
    echo'</div><!--end widget-->'."n";

    Thats it. Once again sorry for the late response

    Best regards

    Kriesi

    Ps: if you add multiple widgets and want to reduce the whitespace between them add the following line of css to your style.css file:


    #frontpage #main .widget{ padding-bottom: 0px; }
