New Custodian - How to get the article intro float below the image on frontpage
  • On New Custodian Template I want to have the article intro floating under the image if it is longer than then the image height. But unfortunately it's displayed like a block. You can see it here on my test installation : http://vsg-zunizu.cyoncloud.com/

    It's the first story below the top story. In my eyes it's of course standard that the article intro have to float to the left if it increases image height.

    I already tried a lot with CSS classes and so on but was not successful.

    Any suggestions how to solve this ?

    Best regards

  • Hi,
    New Custodian uses grid system 1140px which has predefined classes like fourcol, eightcol etc. Top story block is placed inside eightcol container (which is the width of content area; the rest of four goes to sidebar), then further devided in two parts in proportions picture:text 2:1. So, again eightcol container for picutre and fourcol for intro. If you want to get text float around the picutre, get rid if internal division to 8 and 4 and style floating correctly.

  • Hello Ljuba,

    you have been right. I managed it with creating a div class "twelvecol" and the other classes only with div.
    Thanks for your help.

    But in the meantime my installation is gone for a absolute weird reason ( error log : File does not exist: /var/lib/newscoop/themes/publication_2/theme_1/_css/ui-lightness/images/ui-bg_highlight-soft_0_ffffff_1x100.png, referer: http://vsg-zunizu.cyoncloud.com/themes/publication_2/theme_1/_css/ui-lightness/jquery-ui.custom.css ).

    The work of one week was destroyed.
    I installed now the third time new and hope everything will go fine. With Newscoop it's a litte bit like a lottery. But this is sure my last try.  Otherwise I switch to Drupal

    Best regards
