Hi,

I would like to add a 2 X 800px cell widget area to the header but I would like them to be on top of each other as oposed to side by side. How would I do this?

Thanks

I am using this code in the header config :

<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Banner&cells=2&align=1&width =800&before_widget=&after_widget='); ?>

The problem here is that the cells are split vertically and I need them to slipt horizontaly.
Is there a way of doing this?

Joao

What would you do with a 2px widget?

Hi,

It's not a 2 px widget, it's two x 800 px wide widngets, horizontally placed on top of each other.

We are building a site which requires the same header image throughout all the pages, but we have product pages in which we dont want to use the header image, but rather want to insert some other code for a different fucntion.
So what I am want to do is place the 2 header widgets horizontally, the top one with the header image and the bottom one with the other html code, then hide them depending on the page i want to show.
Makes sense?

NOTE: This will effect ALL extra widget areas!

You can try this. Edit functions.php and locate lines 323-358 which should be
HTML Code:
	echo '<table id="' . $area_id . '" class="bfa_widget_area" style="table-layout:fixed; width: 100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">';
	
	for ( $i = 1; $i <= $r['cells']; $i++ ) {
		
			$current_name = $r['name'] . ' ' . $i;
			$current_id = $area_id . '_' . $i;
			$current_align = "align_" . $i;
			
			echo "\n" . '<td id="' . $current_id .'" ';
			
			if ( $r[$current_align] ) { 
				$align_type = $r["$current_align"];
			} else {
				$align_type = $r['align'];
			}
			
			echo bfa_table_cell_align($align_type) . ">";
			
			// Register widget area
			#$bfa_ata_widget_areas[] = $current_name; 
	  		$bfa_ata_widget_areas[] = array(
	  			"name" => $current_name,
	  			"before_widget" => $r['before_widget'],
	  			"after_widget" => $r['after_widget'],
	  			"before_title" => $r['before_title'],
	  			"after_title" => $r['after_title']
	  			);
	  
	   		// Display widget area
			dynamic_sidebar("$current_name"); 
			
			echo "\n</td>";
	    
	}
	
	echo '</table>';
and change them to this
HTML Code:
	echo '<table id="' . $area_id . '" class="bfa_widget_area" style="table-layout:fixed; width: 100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">';
	echo "\n<tr>";
	for ( $i = 1; $i <= $r['cells']; $i++ ) {
		
			$current_name = $r['name'] . ' ' . $i;
			$current_id = $area_id . '_' . $i;
			$current_align = "align_" . $i;
			
			echo "\n" . '<tr id="' . $current_id .'" ';
			
			if ( $r[$current_align] ) { 
				$align_type = $r["$current_align"];
			} else {
				$align_type = $r['align'];
			}
			
			echo bfa_table_cell_align($align_type) . ">";
			
			// Register widget area
			#$bfa_ata_widget_areas[] = $current_name; 
	  		$bfa_ata_widget_areas[] = array(
	  			"name" => $current_name,
	  			"before_widget" => $r['before_widget'],
	  			"after_widget" => $r['after_widget'],
	  			"before_title" => $r['before_title'],
	  			"after_title" => $r['after_title']
	  			);
	  
	   		// Display widget area
			dynamic_sidebar("$current_name"); 
			
			echo "\n</tr>";
	    
	}
				echo "\n</td>";

	echo '</table>';
This will make the widget area vertical instead of horizontal
