Solved Placing A Large Widget In Center Of Home Page

Post by MADBIKER1960 on December 18th 2010, 10:06 pm

Greetings;

I want to put in a widget with a message in the spot marked X in the picture.



How do I
1 ) Place a widget? And adjust the size of it so that it fills at least half that space top to bottom?

2 ) Add text to the widget?

3 ) Add a Picture to the widget, the picture will be a gif will that pose a problem?

Please step by step instructions here I am a noob at this kind of stuff.

i have managed to do this.
its not a widget though. go to CP then DISPLAY then hit GENERALITIES and in the big box that says message content you can use html etc which is what i used on this forum if this is what you mean. bare in mind i also used alot of text with it too.

@ FENSTER

Thanks for the answer, I will keep in mind what you have told me for the forums index page, however I still want to put widgets on the Portal page.
So for the next readers if you are aware of how to put widgets in the center of the Portal page please leave the detailed instructions of how I go about doing this.

Thanks.Mr. Green

not possible buddy. widgets can only be displayed on either L/R side via Home. only via the portal can a widget be displayed in the center.

@ WHITESABBATH
You said:

Which is exactly what I want, as you can see by the picture at the top of the thread here that is the portal, do you know how I can put one there?

Thanks.Mr. Green

acp>modules>portal >structure>create widget>enter your info>save>return to widgets,scroll down to personal widgets and chose the one you created >location, column 2>click "add the widget">
Note: you can drag the widget to another location(place it in another column,or above/below another widget.just be sure to always hit "save".
if the portal isn't activated, you must activate via steps 1-3 >activate>yes

@ SABBATH

Children are woderful aren't they? My daughter is the light of my life Very good
Any way back on subject here, great instructions. Worked perfectly, there is still one minor problem though and I hope you have the knowledge for this one.

The text contained within the widget is way to small, and I would like to enlarge it, make a huge headline, then slightly smaller text below that.

I tried to use [size=36] [/size] but that just showed up and the text remained the same size.
Do you know the code to manipulate the text size?

Thanks again for all your help in advance. Mr. Green
