    Less than 5% width not possible for particles - Gantry 5

    • Hi,

      I've been using Gantry since many years (thank you), but here is my first post:

      Why I can't resize the particles less than 5% in width?

      Best reagards,
      ricco

    • that's as small as they go... why do you need a particle that's so narrow virtually no content could/would be shown after margins and paddings?

    • Thanks for the quick rhetoric answer.

      Let me answer you suchlike:

      Why do you think that nobody will be in need for a smaller size?

      5% is not small enough for me, I need a smaller one! :-)

    • I'm suggesting there's a better way than creating an insanely small particle... what are you trying to achieve?

      Particles are containers meant to hold padding, margins, and ultimately content... the reason I personally think "nobody" needs a smaller size is because websites are meant to house content for users... and at 5% width, that's not very user friendly content

      It's also a matter of scale... 5% on a large desktop = 5rem... now when the screen is smaller... say on a small desktop or tablet... scaling 5 rems down to a smaller value becomes, well, messy... especially when you're trying to scale margins and paddings as well

    • the drive link isn't public and I don't share my gmail account (for requesting access)... so if you could make the link public please... you can place the link in the secure tab of a full reply if you'd like and only I (and other mods) will be able to see it

    • You can probably tighten that up with some Variations on the Particle... is the site live? Can you post a link so I can inspect the code and advise?

    • Hi,

      I've already adjusted it.

      The qustion was about the inability to make the particles smaller than 5%.

      Anyway, I've sent you the link in the secure section as the site is not ready yet.

      Thank you

    • If you've got it adjusted how you want it, that's good... I was going to suggest trying the "No Margin" block variation on your Particle and/or the "Align Right" variation as well... you can of course stick a Custom CSS class in at the block level as well and write specific alignment code as needed
