    • as David wrote ...

      It is NOTenough to just change

      <field name="grid_system" type="hidden" default="12"/>
      to
      <field name="grid_system" type="hidden" default="16"/> !!!

      you need to chnage it to

      <field name="grid_system" type="text" default="16" />

      See: type="hidden" needs to be type="text"!!!

      After changing that you need to type "16" into that new field in the template-settings and SAVE it.
      You need to do that to overwrite the setting in the mysql-database.

    • Henning,

      I did made that change (see attached file) and cleared Joomla Cache, browser cache but still no luck. I do not mean to be a pain but I would greatly appreciate your assistance.

      Thank you.

    • You need to go to the template settings in the backend of Joomla.
      Type "16" into that field and save that.

    • Henning, David,

      Thank you, thank you and thank you a million (dollars that is..). I knew that after making some changes, I missed something. I am sorry, I was looking in the Layouts Tab instead of in the Style Tab.

      Thank you all and your Support ROCKS!

      Thanks David I'm wondering about the mainbodyPosition field.

      Is it possible to have a left module position (eg SA) of 2 columns? What do I need to change below to achieve this? I notice the words field for mainBody different to other ie alpha not numeric but I've tried it as the default and as below with no difference. The best I can get is 3|13|3.

      Getting a skinny left column is important for our plan to accommodate older screen widths.
      <field name="mainbodyPosition" type="positions" default="2,10,4" label="MAINBODY_POS">.
      <schemas>1,2,3,4,5,6</schemas>.
      <words>2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10</words>
      <type>custom</type>.
      </field>.

    • I've created a new topic here on the Gantry forum but probably it's better to ask my question here.

      First of all thank you guys - David and Henning - for you efforts and explainations! It really simplifies things.

      So my question is about a mainbody width. I use Joomla2.5.6 and RT Voxel if it's important. After applying the 16cols grid system I can change a mainbody/sidebar width only with a step of 2 - e.g. 12|4, 10|6, 8|8. Did you see this kinda problem before? And maybe you can advise me a solution?

      Thanks in advance!
