Can I override the Sheet Width for Content in an Artisteer theme ?

Hi,

Can I override the sheet width a given 'content' article ?

That is.. I would like to have an article that overrides the sheet width and goes full screen width. But only for that

content on the page.

That is..

**********************************************
===============================

          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Where **** is the Menu, === is 'content' which overrides the sheet width and ^^^^ is content which fits inside the sheet ?

Thanks

Re: Can I override the Sheet Width for Content in an Artisteer theme ?

The best solutions for something like this would be to use AltContent1. Example:

<div class="main-content grid-container">

 <div class="toprow">
  <portal:LayoutPanel ID="divAlt1" runat="server" SkinID="TopPane">
   <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="altContent1" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  </portal:LayoutPanel>
 </div>

 <div class="middlerow">
  <portal:LayoutPanel id="divLeft" runat="server" SkinID="LeftPane">
   <asp:contentplaceholder ID="leftContent" runat="server"></asp:contentplaceholder>
  </portal:LayoutPanel>
  <portal:LayoutPanel id="divCenter" runat="server" SkinID="CenterPane">
   <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="mainContent" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  </portal:LayoutPanel>
  <portal:LayoutPanel id="divRight" runat="server" SkinID="RightPane">
   <asp:contentplaceholder ID="rightContent" runat="server"></asp:contentplaceholder>
  </portal:LayoutPanel>   
 </div>

 <div class="bottomrow">
  <portal:LayoutPanel ID="divAltContent2" runat="server" SkinID="BottomPane">
   <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="altContent2" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  </portal:LayoutPanel>
 </div>

</div> 

The div with the class "middlerow" could be equivalent to your "sheet." The important part is that the "AltContent1" or "TopPane" panel is outside of the "sheet" div so it's not constrained by it.

HTH,

Re: Can I override the Sheet Width for Content in an Artisteer theme ?

Hi,

I modified the layout.Master file as suggested.. And it adds the new altContent to the page, but there are a couple of issues.

1) The block only displays if the 'show title' is checked ? If you untick 'show title' nothing is displayed.

2) It blanks the header menu/graphics/etc..

About to Firebug the output and try and see why...???

Thanks

Re: Can I override the Sheet Width for Content in an Artisteer theme ?

This is better (placing the "fullWidthPanelUnderHeader") outside the </header> block.

Still some issues with forced margin/padding on content. Almost right.
