Hi – Can you let me how to adjust the padding on the columns when using shortcode. I’ve used other column plugin which space things well but the Genesis shortcode appears to have no padding – however it is responsive in a way the others are not so I’d prefer to use it if I can get it looking the way I’d like.
I have played with the css but am clearly missing the fine distinctions.
Thanks in advance.

Hi – Here’s a link http://www.steamfish.com.au/about/
I’ve spaced the test in the first column so that it displays reasonably but as the browser is re-sized you’ll see the text from the two columns butts against each other with no padding between. How can I pt padding in which remains in place across the responsive settings.

You know you can use the one that comes with the theme right? – http://demo.appfinite.net/epik/columns/ It already has the margin/spacing needed. If you still plan to use the other plugin then you would just need to add margin-left to the “one_half” class.

Hi Eric – Thanks – that has helped.Although the one fifth div seems to have some issues – http://demo.appfinite.net/epik/columns/ on you demo page as well as in use on my site ( displaying as full width)
Can you provide the fix for this ?

Hey – Looking into it the one-fifth code was totally missing from the css
To the first list of column classes and then
to the following class refinements and all is well – let me know if this needs further adjustment. Seems to be working fine for me but I’m no coder.
Suggest you amend the theme css though as this seems an error or over sight.

Actually Brian Gardner removed the one-fifth part from the css….not Wes (or Appfinite). I remember him mentioning why on Twitter not too long ago, and it was due to measurements or something.
You can look at the Genesis Sample theme to see that it’s no longer there – http://www.genesisframework.com/columns/ ….and the reason its not in your theme is because Wes develops everything from scratch on top of the Genesis Sample theme.
But of course you can always add it if you want, you’ll just have to figure out how you’re going to add the measurements.September 11, 2013 at 7:33 am #7318
Thanks Kronos – that would explain it.
The code I mentioned above seemed to be working fine for me – hope it is useful to someone else at some point.
