Support » Theme: Meteorite » Meteorite Extensions adding top / bottom padding to rows from Site Origin

  • Resolved Norman Cates

    (@normancates)


    As the subject says, the Meteorite Extensions Plugin is adding 100 px padding top an bottom of Site Origin Rows. When I disable the plugin, that padding goes away.

    And I cannot find any way to turn the padding off, or change those numbers.

    Am I missing something?

    Because this is an excessive amount of padding between rows, and means that I cannot use Site Origins.

    Or I have to turn off the Meteorite Extensions Plug in. Which might be fine. I’m not sure I’m using anything from it anyway.

    Thanks

    You can change those row paddings in the row options from the SiteOrigin Page Builder.

    The Meteorite Extensions plugin does various things for Meteorite, that can’t be implemented in the theme as per the Theme Guildelines.
    Those are:

    • Post, page and project options (header text, header buttons, shortcode for sliders)
    • Possibility to change the slugs of the custom post types (CPT) in the Customizer (coming from Terra Themes Tools, which is planned and built to be used by multiple themes)
    • Support for the Elementor Page Builder
    • Support for the Page Builder by SiteOrigin, including
    • Widgets:
    • List with icons
    • Client Carousel
    • Testimonials Carousel
    • Skill bars / circles
    • Call to actionli>
    • Video (Youtube, Vimeo) embedding

    • Image frame

    • Parallax effect for background image
    • Row seperator
    • Row background image overlay and its color
    • Content alignment

    As I wrote, you can change that spacing in the row options. I will update the plugin descriptions with those information and take a look whether I can provide an option for changing the default row padding of 100px through a child theme.

    Um, I want to change the defaults, not have to change EVERY SINGLE ROW every time to make it work as I want.

    The DEFAULT is wrong.

    We need to be able to change that.

    Your plugin is changing the default in some way.

    I really don’t know why 100px was chosen. It’s FAR too big. It creates 200px between each row. This is insane. But regardless of my opinion, this is a setting that we should be able to change.

    That wasn’t really clear by your first post, as you said you didn’t find any was to change the padding.

    Whether 100 px is too big or not completely depends on your content and your design. On the demo pages it is working with the defaults. Any other number might have not worked in other scenarios. There is no magical number that works everytime.

    this is a setting that we should be able to change.

    I do agree and appreciate your suggestion. I will try to add that option within a few days.

    Thank you.

    Sorry if I was rude about this. It’s just a culmination of a whole lot of little frustrations about web widgets not working as expected, or illogically (in my mind).

    Hi Norman,

    I’ve just uploaded an update 1.7 for Meteorite Extensions with added FAQ and the filter for the default row padding. It should be available soon.
    You can then use this filter e.g. in your child theme or custom plugin:

    
    /*
     * Changing Meteorite Extensions default row padding for Page Builder by SiteOrigin 
     */
    function meteorite_change_default_row_padding() {
    	return 50;
    }
    add_filter( 'meteorite_extensions_default_row_padding', 'meteorite_change_default_row_padding' );

    OK Cool.

    Could I ask that this be also made available in the Customiser? That seems to be a logical place to put it…

    Since I tested that with the Customizer already a few weeks ago and stepped onto something, yesterday I thought of that filter. Well, while I don’t know what happened back then, Meteorite Extensions 1.8 now has the Customizer setting in the General section.

    I would appreciate rethinking your review or providing further feedback on what you think could be improved.

    Thank you! It is indeed there now.

    I will certainly revise my review.

    Also, is there a way I can fling you some money?

    I’m winding up using this theme on a lot of sites because of the sheer versatility.

    And that you DO respond quickly to queries or problems….

    I appreciate your offer, however there is no such option.

    And that you DO respond quickly to queries or problems….

    Even though I can’t answer during the day due to work, I do my best to make up for it in the evening and improve the theme.
