Hi,

Please can you add multiple block styles in sidebars?
I was using this in Artisteer as my primary sidebar had text blocks with headers and content, and sometimes images which don't use a background.
See the right-hand sidebar on www.janetgover.com

Trying to move to Themler I can only have one block type, so either my 'Recent Posts' block has no background or my images sit in a big block of colour. Both of these look very bad.

On the positive side, I can now add the orange borders through CSS.

Thanks in advance,

John

PS - I'm trying to rebuild the my existing site design in Themler as a way of teaching myself how to use the software. The documentation you supply is next to useless - there is no structure to it, so it's hard to understand where to start and how the various menu options fit together.

Hi,

We added your request to our wish list.
In general, you can use different module positions in the sidebar. Different module positions can have different block styles. In Themler you can add any desired number of positions. This may help you to achieve the desired result.

Thank you,
Olivia

Thanks Olivia,
Multiple modules would work for a static set of widgets, but the widgets change and I don't want to be stuck with rebuilding the theme every time I need a change.

Hi,

Thank you for your comments.
In this case the best solution is custom module class suffixes and custom css which will remove the block content background.

Thanks Olivia - I should have mentioned I'm using Wordpress, so module class suffixes aren't available.
For now I can use three different widget areas and think of a different option in the next design.
Moving to Joomla is a bit of an ask just to get a sidebar looking correct :o)

Hi,

Yes, unfortunately WP does not support such great feature like class suffixes.
Then I can only suggest different widget areas.
Also, if you know how to use browser developers tools you can inspect the widgets and use widget identifiers to assign custom css to them. This may help.

Thank you,
Olivia
