Hi GeoLearn,

It seems that when your site is at full width, the class .rt-grid-6 is getting a width of 600px. Both rt-alpha and rt-omega share this style. Now when you begin to shrink the page, your media queries come into effect. When this happens the size of .rt-grid-6 changes it's width to 480px.

You need to edit your media query in order to fix the issue, or you can change the initial width of .rt-grid-6 to 480px.

adrian, when I define grid 6@ 480 pixels, the page loads properly side by side, but the useful links are split equally with the content area. any ideas why it is not splitting 8,4?

Those are 2 separate classes. One is rt-grid-10 which has a width of 640px, and the other is rt-grid-2 which has a width of 240px.

What you need to do is delete the following CSS:

#rt-bottom .rt-container .rt-grid-10 { width:640px;}
#rt-bottom .rt-container .rt-grid-2 { width:240px;}

Open in new window


And then replace the rt-*-10 CSS with this CSS in the following media query:

@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 959px) {
  .rt-grid-10 {width: 520px;}
  .rt-push-10 {left: 520px;}
  .rt-pull-10 {left: -520px;}
  .rt-prefix-10 {padding-left: 520px;}
}

Open in new window
