Hello Ciaran,

I've started to use the News Module, but stumbled on an early issue. I only intend to display the latest news article on the home page, but I cannot find a suitable configuration which will work for both desktop and mobiles. If set to one column and the item layout to "Row - Text|Image" - this displays fine for desktop fine, but for smaller mobile screens (portrait) displaying text and an image side by side is far too cramped. However, if I use the item layout to "Column - Image|Text", the smaller article image is used and therefore pixelated across the width of the screen ... but this will work well for smaller mobile screens.

What would you suggest as a solution. Ideally, I like to keep the item layout to "Row - Text|Image", but make it responsive so the image / text stacks when on smaller screens. Is there any way to achieve this? I've attached a couple of images to illustrate the item layout = "Row - Text|Image".

Many thanks,
Marc

Hi Marc

To amend try adding the following to the Custom CSS field of your templates parameters (Extensions -> Templates -> [YourTemplateStyle] -> Custom CSS)....

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
.j51_news figure {
flex-direction: column !important;
}}

Hello Ciaran,

I've added the customer css, but unfortunately it didn't have any effect. After the CSS was added, I used FireFox's Web Developer -> Responsive Design Mode and set the width to 300px - please see the attached image. Unfortunately the article text is not readable.

Many thanks
Marc

Hi Ciaran

Please use the same log on credentials as for the other ticket you're looking at:
"
ImageHover Gallery - masonry style not working
"

I've previously sent them to [email protected] If you make any changes, please let me know what they are, as this is a live site.

Many thanks,

Thank you Marc

Your template does not appear to have a custom CSS option. May I suggest allowing us access to your Extensions manager and we will create an override for the module to which we will add the suggested CSS directly.

Hi Ciaran,

Actually, I see what the issue is, the CSS you originally gave was slightly incorrect for my website. I found the following worked :


@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
.j51news figure {
flex-direction: column !important;
}}


Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Out of interest, because the text is unreadable on smaller screens, would this issue be considered as a bug and therefore be corrected in a later release of the extension?

Many thanks

Hi Marc

Thank you for the update.

This is certainly an option we intend to include, that where a user can select row/column for each screen size.
