Grid based template to get more columns

Postby mediana » Mon 11 Jan 2010 01:14

Currently the blog template can display content on 1 or 2 columns only.
Has anyone worked on a solution to get the content displayed on a larger grid of 3 or more columns ?
I am pretty new with the component and would love a tutorial on this to illustrate how templatting works in Flexicontent.

its pretty easy. Ive already made a few templates takes less than an hour to re-factor a layout

when the tutorials become available you'll see what they mean

its not hard to add a new position and alter the CSS

there's an outdated French tutorial on the subject here
http://www.flexicontent.org/documentation/tutorials/template-creation

it's still useful

or you could just study the file system for a few minutes and get a good idea of how to alter it. Let me see if I can put out a template for you
I'll post it tonight

Hey guys I created a tutorial for this sort of thing - How to create your own custom FLEXIcontent layout template- on my site. http://www.orchid1software.com/Website/home/item/42-creating-your-own-flexicontent-layout

Would be happy to host it on this site but haven't gotten a hold of Ken McDonald a.k.a. kenmcd.
