Hoping you'll forgive a relative newb with a question. I've been using Marinelli since v.6 in Jan 2009. I recently upgraded to Drupal 7, and Marinelli 7x3 beta4.

I'm trying to get the Banner/Advertise region resized to down to 200px high, so I may continue to use the numerous custom graphics I'd made for the previous version (200 was a limit then IIRC). I've followed the advice on http://drupal.org/node/1000530, and modified the lines with Height: parameters in advertise.css. However this does not work.... could you provide more guidance on what lines to change? Are the other files to look at? Here is what I did:

#advertise{
display: block;
float: left;
position: relative;
z-index: 2; /* under primary menu but over content wrapper (z-index=1) */
width: 970px;
height: 200px; /* banner image height */
}
#advertise.unlimited{ /* we have to use a deeper selector to override line 15 */
height: 200px; /* advertise region */
}
img.slide{
width: 970px;
height: 200px; /* banner image height */
}

(note, I originally left the Width set to 100% as original; 970 is the W dimension of my banners)

Also, in a similar vein, in this new Marinelli the width of the content region has shrunk, and the sidebars take up more space. I'd like to change this back to the v.6 style as well (so I don't have to reformat all of my content), but after poring over all the .css files and template.php I am unsure where this setting would be.

Sorry if these questions seem entirely simple or banal, but I'm trying to learn and there's almost too many places to get lost in... a few pointers would be much appreciated. Apologies if this is not the proper place to ask. Thank you!

Well I solved my own issue with regards to the Content vs. Sidebar real estate. I found the changes to make in the \logics\layout.inc file.

I only use one sidebar, and the content is on the left. So I changed the grid settings in layout.inc accordingly. For example, Lines 89 and 93 became

$class = 'grid_3';
and
  $class= 'grid_3 pull_9';
respectively. (Originally, these were set to "grid_4" and "grid_4 pull_8").

Also needed to change the corresponding lines in the Content Class. Ergo, lines 145 and 149 became

$class = 'grid_9';
and
$class = 'grid_9 push_3';

This now gives me a wider content area and a narrower single sidebar.

I hope this helps some others. Still trying to figure out the banner size issue though. (BTW, the rest of the updates to Marinelli are great... don't want to sound like I'm just complaining ;) )

I think I solved the banner size issue.

Had to go to Administration » Configuration » Development » Performance and clear the host cache. As soon as I did that, the banners refreshed to the size I specified in advertise.css It's working great now! Perhaps this step can be mentioned in the documentation?

Sorry for the hassle, and thanks for reviewing this. Very pleased with the theme now ;)

@GIC: the theme was designed to use a wider sidebar when the second sidebar is not active. Maybe we can add another theme setting to accomplish your request...It could be a nice add-on in my opionion

Yes that would be a great feature to get more control over those column widths when we have only one sidebar column. A two-column version of the theme maybe? Great work everyone and a fabulous theme!

Thanks kindly for these tips. I managed to get my right column a bit narrower, but I could stand to narrow it even more, and of course widen the left column. I tried different values but didnt have much luck. Can any suggest values/changes so that I can get the layout something like this site (www.johnnystork.ca)

The one I am trying to change is here.

Changes so far...

$class = 'grid_3';
and
$class= 'grid_3 pull_9';
respectively. (Originally, these were set to "grid_4" and "grid_4 pull_8").

Also needed to change the corresponding lines in the Content Class. Ergo, lines 145 and 149 became

$class = 'grid_9';
and
$class = 'grid_9 push_3';
