Support » Plugin: Genesis Widget Column Classes » Cannot line up 2 columns side by side

  • Resolved mrlennyman


    Hey Jory,

    I love the idea of your plugin, but I cannot figure out how to bypass this themes css – the theme is infinity pro in Studiopress and the link to the home page is above –
    I am trying to add two columns in home front-page-5 – an image and a text box one third and two thirds, but cannot get them lined up.

    I have added all the front-page-5 css to the customizer additional css section and commented it out using /* */ to see if that would work – but no.
    I will remove this tso you can see the code as it is normally.

    Are you able to take a look and see what css I need to override for your plugin to work?

    Many thanks

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @mrlennyman,

    I took a look at your page but couldn’t find any reference to what you are describing.
    The front-page-5 widget area appears to display a full-width background with a single text widget.

    The text widget has a two-thirds class but that gets overwritten by the theme CSS:

    .flexible-widgets.widget-full .widget,
    .flexible-widgets.widget-area .widget:nth-of-type(1),
    .flexible-widgets.widget-halves.uneven .widget:last-of-type {
       width: 100%;

    So in your case the theme is forcing it’s own structure over the column classes.
    You will have to edit your theme in order to change that or manually add style overwrites for the column classes.

    There is also another issue with your installation. I see a class genesis_widget_column_classes_capability which shouldn’t be there. I reviewed the plugin code again to be sure it’s not the plugin. The only place this identifier is used if for a filter which you can use to restrict access to the column widths for other users/roles.
    Any idea what might happened there?

    Let me know!
    Regards, Jory
