[resolved] Custom Content Type Manager - how to format output (3 posts)

    I have been at this for a few days and I'm not getting anywhere so I am hoping someone here can help me.

    I am using the CCTM plugin so I can create different content and have them place within the bottom section of the PAGE.

    I have created 2 Custom Fields: Media and WYSIWYG.

    I am able to get them to work, but each time they get output on the PAGE, they get output to the top of the PAGE when I want to output them at the bottom of the PAGE (with media on the left and text on the right). You will see a blue line, I want to output them below this blue line.

    I have used CSS and a DivColumn plugin to keep them in place at the bottom but no luck.

    [column grid="3" span="1"]
    <div class="leftSide">[custom_field name="media_area" class="leftSide"]</div>

    [column grid="3" span="2"]
    <div class="rightSide">[custom_field name="contentarea" class="rightSide"]</div>

    I have also tried without the DIVcolumn plugin and just straight CSS and still no luck.

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again for any help.

    I was able to resolved this.

    For those looking to find a solution to this question like myself. Here was how I did it.

    I edited the PAGE template (such as archive.php) and I placed some CCTM codes along with the stylesheet.

    You can find the CCTM codes by going to:
    Custom Content Type TAB > Custom Content Types > under the column heading Description, you will see a link "View Samples Templates" > click on this link and you can find the codes in there.

    I hope that helps.
