Formatting the fields on the shortcode (4 posts)

    hi roland,
    You say in your docs: "If you want to get tricky with the CSS, each header column has a class name that corresponds to the name of the field, you can use CSS to lay out the listing exactly as you want."

    I've been able to do some formatting with the header columns, but not for the <td>. i'd like to have more than one field in each table cell, i.e. name, with the person's membership affiliation beneath name, then address in 2nd. field with City, state, zip beneath address, and website/s beneath that, each on with a
    .
    I tried putting html into a text area on a record for full_address, but it does not take html.
    Here is the table in the site we are trying to recreate in WP. http://ggashi.com/inspector_index.php?cty=San%20Mateo
    Many Thanks,
    eve

    hi roland,
    I have solved part of the problem with a js that wraps fields under each other. I would still like to make some fields, but not all, bold or italic. Is this possible?

    Here is the bundled fields page. http://dev2.lonersonwheels.com/wp/multi-col-bundling/.

    I would love to be able to change the header fields to a name that reflects the column of bundled fields. Is this possible?

    And also to have no header row on some pages. Is this possible?

    Eve,

    Perhaps you need to create a special field that just works as a container for the other fields. Really, this needs the templates I'll be coming out with on the next release.

    The rest is all easy to accomplish in your theme stylesheet.

    Hi xnau,
    Any eta on the templates? I'm a beginner/intermediate coder and not having success cleaning up the listing. There's far too much white space and, like elurie, I'd like to consolidate the fields so that with more than four or five fields it doesn't require horizontal scrolling. You can see an example here: http://southsoundsings.com/listings/

    I am wondering if the php is inserting <tr>'s for empty values. But not really sure why there's so much white space.

    Also: can you give a short example of how to "create a special field that just works as a container for the other fields?"

    Thanks so much! I really do appreciate your hard work.
