Full Width Wrapper

Post by brockvlog » Wed Feb 13, 2008 5:55 pm

Can someone explain to me how to take a template with a Wrapper that shows up with a left and a right area, and take the Left and Right areas away?

Most websites that I "wrap" are too wide and the auto scroll bars keep showing up. I want the full width of the website available for the wrapper site.

I notice that some templates are designed this way, but I would like the ability to change the templates that don't come like that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its a reverse process, between menu link items and modules.

You need to do this for EACH module on each side of the page.

Create the button to open the wrapper. Go no further.

Go to each module individually via the Admin B/E >> Extensions >> Module Manager.

Open each module, look at the bottom for the list that is keyed ALL NONE SELECT.

Click NONE to clear the list.

Then assign the module to the respective menu link item you want so that when clicked, the module will appear. If you don't click a menu item it won't appear.

For multiple selections, hold down the CTL as you make selections.

Its a mini-rubics cube thing but it will make the modules disappear when you click on any menu link item to which the module IS NOT assigned.
