Edit the existing essential grid?


  • Luis Ramos started the conversation

    In the demo podcastr, the section "latest episodes" is created with the plugin Essential Grid. 

    I'm sure it's easy to solve this. Where can I find that Essential grid config so I can edit it (change look and feel, items shown, etc)?

    Once edited I want to insert it in a different page as well. Where can I find the shortcode for this grid so I can use it elsewhere?

    Thx in advance

    I didn't have no skins available in that menu option.

    When importing the whole theme, no skins are shown in the essential grid. I've had to manually re-import now the json ess. grid file so I have access to edit these skins.

    I don't think this is that obvious so I guess you should work on that as well.

    One more question. I'm editing your essential grid setting, but can't seem to find how to make the images in the grid 16:9, not squared.

    I use landscape images in my posts and in other social media sites when referring to my posts, and I'd like this grid to show my images without the lower and upper black bars on my images.

    This settings I've changed (image attached), setting the grid layout to even, and the ratio XY to 16:9 should do the trick, but it doesn't. I still see the black upper and lower bars on my images.

    As programmers of the original grid, do you think is there any other setting I should be aware of to make my images show in its real ratio?

    Thanks!! I think now looks really great. 

    One last adjustment pending.

    Is there a way to make this essential grid boxes of a fixed height? Some boxes are a little too tall and push the content of that column down a bit. 

    Can't figure out how to adjust/limit that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
