I have a site here: http://www.lakeviewpantry.org/ that is suppose to have 4 columns where the brown area exists.

My development site: http://www.plumthree.com/lakeview/ works correctly...and I have copied the exact html and css code to the live site but it is not working.

This is my css:

.colmask{width:100%;left:0%;clear:both;float:left;overflow:hidden;position:relative;}

.colmid{right:20%;float:left;width:100%;position:relative;}
.colin{right:28%;float:left;width:100%;position:relative;}
.colleft{right:26%;float:left;width:100%;position:relative;}
.col1{width:24%;left:101%;padding:0px 0px 1em 0px;overflow:hidden;float:left;position:relative;}
.col2{width:24%;left:51%;padding:0px 0px 1em 0px;overflow:hidden;float:left;position:relative;}
.col3{width:26%;left:79%;padding:0px 0px 1em 0px;overflow:hidden;float:left;position:relative;}
.col4{width:18%;left:81%;padding:0px 0px 1em 0px;overflow:hidden;float:left;position:relative;}

Open in new window


and this is my php:

<div class="colmid">

        <div class="colin">

            <div class="colleft">

<div class="col1">
	<?php
	if ( dynamic_sidebar('home_right_2') ) :
	else :
	?>
	<?php endif; ?>             
</div>
<div class="col2">
	<?php
	if ( dynamic_sidebar('home_right_1') ) :
	else :
	?>
	<?php endif; ?>
</div>
<div class="col3">
	<?php
	if ( dynamic_sidebar('home_right_3') ) :
	else :
	?>
	<?php endif; ?>
</div>
<div class="col4">
	<?php
	if ( dynamic_sidebar('home_right_4') ) :
	else :
	?>
	<?php endif; ?>
</div>                
            </div>
        </div>
</div>

Since this is a live site I had to use a table for the four columns as a temp solution.

Still hoping for a css solution.

I would try to use display:table, display: table-row  and display:table-cell for this layout instead of floating, as "floating" is not the right way here.

apart from that, the "issue" you had is eventually coming from cached files?

Can you give me an example of what you mean?

I cleared the cache and disabled the Wordpress cache plugin they had used.

I'd settle for a 4 column responsive code example that worked.

here we go with the css and the html as example:CSS
body { display: table; table-layout:fixed ; margin : 0; padding: 0;  height: 100%; width: 100%; position: relative;}
.row  { display: table-row ; width: 100%; background: blue; text-overflow: ellipsis ; text-align:center; }

.cell { display: table-cell;  width: 100%;
}

Open in new window

html body:
<body >
   <div class="row">
         <div class="cell">a</div>
         <div class="cell">b</div>
         <div class="cell">c</div>
  </div>
</body>

Well, I tested your code in a html file and it worked perfectly.

When I applied it to the header.php of the live site, instead of horizontal it went vertical like my old code.

So, to recap, it works fine on my development server and not on the live server. And the development server is a copy of the live server I made 6 days ago.

I am at a loss.

Lakeview decided to go back to the stock three column solution and it worked for them.

But I liked your 3 column solution so I'm going to save that code for something else.

Thanks!
