Re: Multiple Content Panes on Layout.master - 14 Panes

It only shows templates you create so there is nothing there until you create one. The system templates are not listed but you can use a system template as a starting point. Click new template then choose a system template from FCKeditor, then modify it and save it, give it a name. Now your custom one will also show up in the list in FCKeditor as a template.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Joe,

damn, this is even getting better and better!!!!

It is possible that I have to implement a new site in a couple of weeks, but not an easy one for layout.
But now I know how this is working, it is a piece of cake!

This deserves a six-pack Joe. I hope it is still cool when it arrives from Belgium to you ;)

Thanks Joe

Het Stef,

Many thanks for the beers! Very much appreciated.

I'm thinking I need to make some more training videos to show off some of these features that may not be so obvious. I just made one to show off our skins and skin browser. Its Silverlight though not Flash. I'm playing with the new Expression Studio 3, it has nice screen capture and audio/video encoding. Seems nicer than other screen capture tools I've used.

Cheers,

Joe

Cheers Joe ;)

Well, I do think it would help a lot with video's, but I understand that working on such video's takes time, time on which you can't work on the project.
But having good documentation makes it easier for others to use the cms. I would say, keep up the good work :)

Re: Multiple Content Panes on Layout.master - 14 Panes

Hi,

Returning back to multiple content Panes - is there easy way to add 6th one? Or may be some other advise would be good. Here is my situation - i use all 3 panaels on the center, above them is top alt panel, and below in footer there is  bottom alt panel that i use for advert modules, also i would need to add one more advert module above the header... the content is not just html so i can't use just one module in the center... also not all pages use all 3 modules at the center.. my last thought is to use custom css for some pages to put let's say "Right" panel above the header (using absolute aligment), it will solve some problems, but it will couse some problems with sizing, hiding if empty etc. While imagining all this complications to swap panels per page may be it will be easyer for me to add one or 2 additional Panels?

Regards,

Victor

Re: Multiple Content Panes on Layout.master - 14 Panes

Hi Victor,

We have solved this by adding CSS classes named something like "float-left" and "float-right." We then place these in the "Custom CSS Class" of the modules that we want floated. It works quite well and there is no need to make changes in mojoPortal for it to work. Take a look the CodeBox site for an example of this. The "Latest News" and "What Our Clients Say" sections are both in the Center pane. This gives you the ability to have different content modules shown next to each other but inside of a panel (left, center, right, top, bottom).

HTH,
Joe D.
