Area positioning in Jahia is static. Can this be changed?

Hi, 

I am a newbie to Jahia. I have been working with Jahia for a while now to create microsites for a project.

I have been trying to change the way positioning of areas works in a template. I want to be able to change the position of the images, webclips and banners in the page.

Example: Images (change the position of the image, overlay an image on top of another, change the size of the image etc..).

Is there a way I can change the position of areas in a template after the template has been defined?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

this is for sure possible if the template was setup correctly to start off with. Depending if this is a logical change or a representation view you can change the CSS to get the desired effect.

If it's a logcal change you can go back to your template in Studio and change how the template works. What's important to remember is to name the area the same. For example if you have a 'footer' area then I wil usually call this 'footer'. I do name my areas somewhat logical, for example leftcolumn, maincolumn, rightcolumn this way I can (to some extent) change my template and my main column stays there, or just onñy shows my right and maincolumn. If you keep naming somewhat logical it will save you time later on finding the content and put them in the right columns again.

Hope that helps

Ries
