    CQ Column Layouts not available

    kvelhal Level 1

      I am trying to define column layouts for my design using CQ's colctrl component. I added the colctrl to the parsys and in design mode defined the layout styles. I do have the styles defined in the CSS and the styles are available on the page. However when I edit the colctrl component the column layout drop down is empty. I cannot pick say  3 column or 4 column layout. Any idea why this might be happening?

          Hi kvelhal,

           

          When switch to design mode  open design dialog of colctrl & make sure entries in Allowed Formats field are added.

          Also copy /etc/designs/geometrixx/static.css file to your custom designs & verify.

           

          Thanks,

            I had the correct entries in Allowed Formats field. I tried copying the static.css from geometrixx site into my design but I still does not see the entries in dropdwon when I edit the colctrl component.

             

            In one of my other site, I do have the colctrl working fine without any need to copy static.css from geometrixx. Not sure what is wrong with teh current site

                Have you updated the jcr content in etc/designs/jcr:content/<"your design"><"page component"><"parsys"> with <colctrl>  node.

                 

                For example,

                 

                /etc/designs/geometrixx/jcr:content/contentpage/par/colctrl

                layouts:

                2;cq-colctrl-lt02 Columns (50%, 50%)
                3;cq-colctrl-lt13 Columns (33%, 33%, 33%)
                4;cq-colctrl-lt24 Columns (16%, 16%, 16%, 33%)
                4;cq-colctrl-lt34 Columns (25%, 25%, 25%, 25%)
                5;cq-colctrl-lt45 Columns (20%, 20%, 20%, 20%, 20%)

                 

                Also add the styles curresponding to the class names.
