[resolved] Problems displaying columns (8 posts)

    I am trying to add columns to a page but for some reason I only get one long 'column' with each column section displayed vertically below the other.

    I have tried three different column-creating plugins and get the same result for each. As a test, I switched to the Twenty Eleven theme and the plugins work perfectly, so it seems to be something specific to this theme.

    Thank you in advance for your help!



  2. please post a link to your page with the columns.

    Sorry, I don't have the site published anywhere yet. I will find somewhere to host it temporarily. In the meantime, I could send a screenshot if that would be helpful.


  4. screenshot is of no use

    - what column plugin have you tried last?

    Sorry... I will try to host it on one of our internal servers tomorrow.

    I've tried Easy Columns, Advanced WP Columns and WP Post Columns. Same result for all.

    I just tried another test to make sure I haven't done anything in the CSS to cause the issue. With a brand new site, I create a page and add columns using the Advanced WP Column plugin - the columns look great. Switch to Creativix theme, and the columns are stacked on top of one another.

    Thanks again for your help...


  6. there is one style in style.php about in the middle, of wp-creativix which looks suspicious:

    .content div {
    display: block;
    clear: left;

    try to either overwrite this with a clear:none; within the column styles, or remove the above style (at least temporarily for testing)

    You... are... awesome...

    I commented out that section and that fixed it.

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Guys!
    I read this, but I really can't seem to get columns to work!

    I'm trying very hard, and i'm not a techy, but it just doesn't seem to want to do columns, even after I did the ting that Alcymyth suggested.
