how to change orientation of section blog items?

Post by chaymaker » Tue Feb 01, 2011 5:43 pm

current settings show blog items like this(are for cross multicolumns):

<tr>
<td>
<tr>blog item1</tr>
<tr>blog item3</tr>
<tr>blog item5</tr>
<tr>blog item7</tr>
</td>
<td>
<tr>blog item2</tr>
<tr>blog item4</tr>
<tr>blog item6</tr>
<tr>blog item8</tr>
</td>
</tr>

and how to change them to:
<tr>
<td>blog item1</td>
<td>blog item2</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>blog item3</td>
<td>blog item4</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>blog item5</td>
<td>blog item6</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>blog item7</td>
<td>blog item8</td>
</tr>

all this because i want to show items in a beautiful order..

Trivially easy! In the administrator back end, edit the menu item for your section blog. On the right hand side, open the "Parameters (Advanced)" panel. Change the "Multi Column Order" to "across." Open the "Parameters (Basic)" panel. Change the "# Intro" value to 8.

Remember: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

Way too complicated. There are parameters in the menu item for exactly this purpose.
