    Earlier this year when I worked on this I never was successful.  We need to get this working, but I won't have experimental time for another few months.
     
    Anyone out there want to do some paid freelance work on fixing up this block for me?

    I think that makes sense.
     
    I've tried replacing the $records in  <foreach loop="$records as $r"> with  $records['category']['subcats'], the result is a blank box.  Which makes sense, since I don't think I've specified the category that it is supposed to be concentrating on.

    I think I am on the right track with this, but I wanted to double check.
     
    For my IP.Content portal page, I am trying to create a couple of blocks that serve as index blocks for article categories.  Each block will contain just the sub-categories of the primary one specified for the particular block.  So for example:
     
    Category A:
    - SubA1
    - SubA2
    - SubA3
     
    Category B:
    - SubB1
    - SubB2
    - SubB3
     
    So my first block would just list the SubAx's, the second block will list all of the SubBx's, etc.
     
    I am looking to use the  $r['category']['category_parent_id'] tag to limit the following baseline code:
     
    <div class='general_box'>
         <h3>{$title}</h3>      <ul class='hfeed'>          <if test="is_array( $records ) && count( $records )">          {parse striping="feed_striping" classes="row1,row2 altrow"}          <foreach loop="$records as $r">              <li class='hentry {parse striping="feed_striping"}' style='padding: 4px 4px 4px {parse expression="$r['level']*20"}px;'>                  &bull; <a href='{$this->registry->ccsFunctions->returnDatabaseUrl( $r['category']['category_database_id'], $r['category']['category_id'] )}'>{$r['category']['category_name']}</a>              </li>          </foreach>          </if>      </ul> </div> <br />   I think I'm right, but am unsure of the correct way to use it to limit the $records array.  Any thoughts?

    I spent more time messing around with in-line CSS and the ipsLayout items that I understood, here is what I have if anyone is interested:
     
     
    {ccs special_tag="navigation"} <div class='ipsLayout ipsLayout_withright'>     <div class='ipsLayout_right'>                 {parse block="portalminicalendar"}                 {parse block="today_s_calendar_events"}          {parse block="portalcalevents"}          {parse block="portallinks"}          {parse block="portalsoftwarelinks"}          {parse block="portalactiveusers"}          {parse block="portalgallerypic"}     </div>     <div class='ipsLayout_content'>          {parse block="portalposts"}          {parse block="portaltopics"}            <div class='ipsBox'>              <style type="text/css">                  .leftBoxHoe{                      width: 31%;                      float: left;                      }                                       .midBoxHoe{                      width: 31%;                      float: left;                      }                                       .rightBoxHoe{                      width: 31%;                      float: left;                      }                                   </style>                                        <div class='ipsBox leftBoxHoe'>                      <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                          {parse block="hoepolicies"}                      </div>                  </div>                           <div class='ipsBox midBoxHoe'>                      <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                          {parse block="hoeprocedures"}                      </div>                  </div>                       <div class='ipsBox rightBoxHoe'>                  <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                      {parse block="downloadblock"}                  </div>              </div> <div class='clearfix'></div>                   </div>           </div>      </div>

    Hi Ajouz,
     
    Thank you for this.  Your method looks like a good way to go about it.  I do have one concern about trying it first, in that we're trying to avoid any skin/css customizations (this is to make the lives of my successors easier).
     
    Based on what you posted above, and a 3.2 Invision layout guide I found, I've been trying to do this using the built-in ipsLayout calls.  Here is what I have so far, it doesn't line up side-to-side as I would like:
     
     
     
    {ccs special_tag="navigation"} <div class='ipsLayout ipsLayout_withright'>     <div class='ipsLayout_right'>                 {parse block="portalminicalendar"}                 {parse block="today_s_calendar_events"}          {parse block="portalcalevents"}          {parse block="portallinks"}          {parse block="portalsoftwarelinks"}          {parse block="portalactiveusers"}          {parse block="portalgallerypic"}     </div>     <div class='ipsLayout_content'>          {parse block="portalposts"}          {parse block="portaltopics"}            <div class='ipsBox'>              <div class='ipsLayout ipsLayout_withleft ipsLayout_withright'>                                    <div class='ipsBox'>                      <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                          {parse block="hoeprocedures"}                      </div>                  </div>                           <div class='ipsBox'>                      <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                          {parse block="downloadblock"}                  </div>              </div>                       <div class='ipsBox'>                  <div class='ipsBox_container ipsPad'>                      {parse block="policyblock"}                  </div>              </div>          </div>           </div>      </div>
  6. homeofeconomy added a post in a topic: Would like to do a section with 3 columns in main content area   

    Is there an easy way to arrange three small content blocks across the bottom of my main content block?  Something that would look like this:
     
     
    xxxxxxx Main Content width xxxxxxx
    aaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbb cccccccccc
     
    Where the A's, B's, and C's are my small content blocks (they are little index maps to policies, procedures, and file downloads).  I've been working at finding the built-in css classes but am having no luck - I think I might be going about it entirely wrong.
     
    Any thoughts?
     
    Many thanks for your time.
