[resolved] Footer widgets break Pinboard home page (5 posts)

    I have Pinboard set up to use a static front page, with a sticky first post and 4 additional posts. Template for Home page is blog four column

    I would like to put three widgets into the footer area.

    They display fine on single posts, archives and search.

    But they break the Home page.

    I don't want to leave the site live while this is a problem, but I have images of the broken home page here and the single post page here.

    Any idea why this might be?

    There's something in the functions.php file that was causing this issue for me. If you simply update the theme, or override the functions.php file with the newest version file, this should probably fix the problem. Hope that helps!

    I'll try that.

    I wasn't aware that there had been an update to the theme since I reported the issue.

    I downloaded a completely new installation of this theme via wordpress -- version 1.1.4

    No change in the behaviour of my home page. The footer with widgets still crashes into the main content.

    Then I downloaded it from onedesigns and just put in the new functions.php.

    Still no change.

    I also deactivated all plugins, and that made no difference either.

    The very first time I load the static front page after activating the theme, it looks OK, but then a reload of any kind, either from another page or just clicking on reload, messes it up.

    I have tested in Chrome and Safari.

    I'm very frustrated, as this theme seems other wise to be so good and is just what I have been looking for.

    I would be totally happy to donate if I could get this little thing sorted out.

    A friend who is much more expert than me took a look and changed line 781 of functions.php to

    columnWidth : jQuery(container.querySelector('.<?php echo pinboard_teaser_class(); ?>')).width() - 1,

    That now works.
