3.6.6 Page Width Error

Post by ldaniels » 12 Sep 2010, 10:03

Hi,
First, I love Suffusion and as a designer, programmer and teacher, admire the elegant and complex package you have achieved.

I just upgraded to 3.6.6. and now my page width is totally messed up and I can't fix it even by re-setting to defaults, theme defaults, switching themes.
The Page Width was the standard 1000px. Now it is somewhere around 600.

It was fine until I upgraded.

I have tried:
1. switching themes
2. resetting the page to defaults
3. resetting the page to theme defaults.

Nothing works.

The image you see in my screen shot is actually supposed to be 925 wide and is in a rotating slideshow.
The search box is supposed to be to the right of the menu.

Suggestions?

Thank you,

Lee

Just to follow up, I reverted to 3.6.5 and everything is back to normal. I'll look for the bug, but you may have a better idea...

Thanks again!

I too am suffering from the love for this theme - and this width problem, but only on the single left sidebar template. I have tried to reset the Overall Page width via simply selecting the 1200px, or the Custom Width or the Custom Width but constructed from individual components (defined below) - but nothing seems to work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sayontan,

Thanks! I've reactivated 3.6.6 and since it is a test site, not live, have PM'd you a password.
the site is at http://ditest.dreamhosters.com That is the one with the narrow front page above.

I upgraded another site using Suffusion to 3.6.6 (SF Windsports at http://sfwindsports.com) and while the page width error did not occur, the site slowed to a crawl and I started getting 404 and 500 errors with every update and save action, particularly when trying to view the front page.
Reverted to 3.6.5 and all was fine.

I will put off upgrading the other 3 sites using Suffusion.

Still the best theme out there! Thanks for all your hard work...

Lee Daniels

Update:

Error only occurs on front page. If that helps...

Your front page uses the "Single Right Sidebar" template. Have you checked the widths on it (Templates -> Single Right Sidebar)? It seems from the generated CSS that the width there is set to 600px.

Yes, I saw that in the page source and was baffled by the "600". I knew about the sidebar.
I remember that back in version 3.5.x, I had to use Single Right Sidebar to get the front page to render correctly. I can't remember why, but it was the only thing that worked then. I haven't looked at or touched the templates settings since then.

Switching the front page to the Default template worked and now the page views normally.

HOWEVER,
On a normal test page, I ran through every template in the drop down menu and if it said "sidebar" it rendered the page narrow and squashed. Single Left Sidebar, Single Right Sidebar, Single Left and Right Sidebars, Double Left, Double Right. The double sidebars were spectacular in slenderizing the wrapper.

I tested and replicated the error on 3 different sites that use Suffusion 3.6.6. If I change the template to any "sidebar" template, the page wrapper shrinks.

I have not customized any templates.
When I revert to 3.6.5, every page and post renders as it should without changes to any code or any customization on my part. Single Right Sidebar works fine.

Here is the shot of the Templates -> Single Right Sidebar:

As you can see, it is set to default values.

I'm sure there is just a typo in the widget code somewhere that got perpetuated. I'll look after some sleep.
I intend to use your great custom sidebar design not only on this site, but the other sites that use Suffusion. I will be creating child themes and custom post types and with your evolving system, it will be a joy to integrate as long as I can have the choice to use sidebar templates if I need to.

As always, thanks again for your responsiveness and keen attention. That alone is worth using Suffusion.

Lee

Sorry about that - you should be at:

In addition, I was incorrect on the width problem being only on the single left page template. It is happening on all new page postings, no matter the template. So far I'm not having any issues with normal posts.
