Yola Widget column divider can place how many and not corrupted?

  • Updated 6 years ago
I found out that if I place the more column widget it seems like overlap it and took long time to load my site. So how many column widget can I place in a site to perform a smooth load?
Eg: I want to divide to have 4 columns so I need to place a big column divider and place another column inside it so it can divided to 4 column. But after that I want to have 2 column at the below part, so I place another divider under it to become 2 column. Well, this time it seems to be over lap when I try to put text widget inside it. And it start look like messing up and can not let me to drag.

May I know which part am I doing wrong? If don't want to use widget to make column then what can I use?

Thanks!

Hi Shee,

What you described shouldn't be due to the column divider. I have used over 10 on a page before without it causing loading issues. Can you paste the link to the page this is happening on so I can take a look of something else might be causing the problem?

Yap, if you place a column scroll down and place scroll down and place is no problem. But when you start to place a 4 column dividers in the widget, and then place text widget (anything else) it will happen corrupt and even if you want to move the text widget to another place it start freezing and can't do anything and need to restart again.

Hello Shee,

I'm familiar with this issue also.

I have found out that sometimes the code gets placed inappropriately.

The solution is to start removing from the last addition and saving after each removal. When you get back to a clear positioning then you can advance again. It doesn't happen very often but it has happened to me a few times. I haven't identified the cause of this. I have noticed that placing the widget becomes sloppy and unstable during the movement. (not unlike a giardia infection )

HI everybody

Thanks for the sooner reply.

How to remove it? If I remove then if I paste again it is the same condition happen.very funny. Some of my page is fine if I never place in 4 column when I start use 4 column it start again. So this must something problem can't use too many column dividers.

Is it have another solution to place a 4 column divider if don't want to use widget? eg: use the html. If use html what html code should I need to place it?

I also have another problem, I can't move the text to the middle of the image. eg: a square image I need to put the long text between top and bottom, but funny when I use html code at the end of the image the text become two text line and one is at the middle, but another text line was at the bottom of the image. Why it can't both line at the middle and align properly?

Thanks.

Can you change your browser and try that?
Is there any other content added to the page particularly text taken from another source or HTML from another place?

I did change the browser to firefox it still the same.

Not really the source problem, even I place the image of myself also the same. I think is the divider widget problem. If I start placing the column widget it always happen and this cfm non related to the text what I copy from, even I type myself it also will happen if never took out the column widget.

I think the widget at first when we place in, what we see is short but I think it is invisible a long portal till the bottom. Then if we insert another column divider widget inside the 1st widget it start 4 column and you can place anything in, yap no problem at this stage. But when you going to place another same widget to make it 2 column under the 1st widget, it began slow loading and then if you lucky then got no problem but sometime if you want to move it, it will hide under the 1st widget divider and can't let u to drag on and it will took long time loading and you can't place anymore widget in.

OK. I think I understand. Thank you for giving that clear response also.

Could you try this:

Add your column divider and then place other dividers as you wish to give you a four column facility.

Then place a text widget under the main column divider and then under the text widget place another column divider. This is sort of like a spacer between the two vertical column divider systems. I'm hoping this will separate the issues for you without adding real space between the two column divider stacks.

See if it will allow you to do this?

Sorry I wasn't clear in my explanation. I hope this diagrammatic approach is more clear,



There are three widgets stacked one above the other:
Divider
Text
Divider

In the first column divider I have added two more dividers to give 4 columns
Then the text widget
Then another column Divider

The HTML for a table is quite involved and yes you can place text and images in it but it takes a lot of learning. It has also been somewhat replaced by CSS in recent times

Yeah this is what I'm doing now, but when at the bottom I need to change to 2 column it seems start overlap and loading longer time to place the 2 column divider, so at this stage it still working, although took longer time, but till the stage 4 I need to make another 4 column at below it start hang.

So what happen?

Huh...isn't there have any simple html code to divided a column like
so I know what I'm placing in the html.

You would probably need to add another text widget after your second group of dividers and then add another group. In other words I think it may work if you separate each group of dividers with a text widget in between like a sandwich.

Ok I put it in this way, Ist I place a 2 column divider, then at the bottom I place another same 2 column divider and place the text inside that 2nd column divider. so I drag it into the 1st column it become 3 column in the 1st column now. So I make another 3rd column and place the text inside and drag into the 1st column again, so it become 4 column now.
Is it same as u mean? Which mean 1st I put a blank column divider then I make the same at the bottom and place the text inside the 2nd and same as the 3rd column the rest is drag into the 1st column divider will do.

Here is a table generator with CSS styling that you can probably use.

Hi Gop here is my site adds sheest.yolasite.com

The site is no problem, but the problem is at the 1st pg, it can't let me put in any of the widget anymore while edited. Although it let me add widget at the bottom after publish the widget will auto run to the top site. So funny, therefor it seems can't do anything for my 1st page.
