my role on this project will be the UI layer for our orchard cms...I have read some of the documentation surrounding themes etc...but have some high-level questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction for UI authoring needs.
How would I change the CSS widths for a content item. For example some pages will be full width 850px for Model.content (layout-main), but there is a scenario now in which we will be populating the Aside.Second zone and in this case I would need to define
a fixed width for #layout-main (500px). I have a limited understanding of the conventions, zones, widget layers, view, parts etc... but Im not sure what a best practice would be. The question I guess is where should I determine the width change from a
site-wide point of view. Ideally following a convention pattern seems easiest for a UI developer w/o having to code a single line of code. I do have a MVC developer building modules etc..as needed. Where are dynamic CSS changes best handled? CSS, Using HTML
widgets in zones? Views?
Just looking for a bit of clarity. Thanks in advance
My simple layout (from theme machine but stripped down)
This is the layout-main-container<br /><br />
@if (Model.Content != null)
@if (Model.AsideSecond != null)
<div id="aside-second" class="aside-second" >
