[Pro] Flexible Width Footer with Freeway 6.x

I’ve read the only post here about this topic but it doesn’t answer my question per se. How do you make a flexible width footer in Freeway Pro 6.x? Please tell me that they addressed this feature and there is now a much easier way. Thanks!

There’s the inline construction method. This is the easiest method I know,
see? http://cssway.thebigerns.com/products/inline-basic-layout/

Thank you! Wow, that is still pretty confusing. I thought someone would have made an Action or SoftPress would have built it in. It’s been such a popular design element for the past couple years. Bummer. I’ll give that method a try. Does anyone know of anything else? Thanks!

Select the footer item. Go to the Inspector panel:

  1. In the Measurement section: select Width = Fixed%.

  2. In the Position section: select Size = 100% (that’s the box with arrow pointing outwards.

Voila!

Thank you, but I’ve tried that & it didn’t work. I just tried again and it still didn’t work. Perhaps my Page is not defined properly? Why is this so difficult for me? LOL

Works with an HTML text box - not with a graphic.

That’s exactly what I was using, an HTML text box. No go :frowning:

When you said “Size”, you were referring to “Width”, correct?

Yes, just above the bottom six boxes it says “Size” and I was referring to the width box - the middle one of the three on the left.

Incidentally I’ve been trying this along with you and can’t make it NOT work!

LOL, Yes that’s the box I thought you were referring to. Figures. What are your Page settings? I’m also trying to do this on a Master page. Do you think that’s the issue? Would kinda defeat the purpose if so. I also would like my site centered. So maybe with these criteria it’s not possible? Thanks!

Same here. Page centered. And yes also works from a Master page.

Interesting. Here are my settings:

Looked at the code on your page. It looks like your footer item may be inside another. Place it directly on the page.

What page? It’s not located at the above address. Just the screenshots are.

That’s just my domain I used, it has nothing to do with what I’m trying to do. That’s just a place I hosted the 2 screenshots. What you’re seeing is actually an old GoDaddy page.

Well, that defeated the purpose. I think I found the issue. If I set my page Width to Flexible it works, but the Align will no longer Center. Any other thoughts? I may have to do what Ernie suggested, but, honestly, I’m totally lost.

If you want a flexible width and align center then it is easiest to go down the inline layout route.

Thanks David. Question then. If you go the inline route how in the word do you still have a drag-n-drop palette? I looked at the inline method again and could no longer see where I could simply move stuff around willy-nilly within my page. Is that true?
