An interface to Yahoo Grids. Improves layout of topics by enabling columns in topics. Various column widths and configurations are supported. Nested columns are possible.
You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.
Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".
If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
If installed, you will see 2 columns. View the source (view raw) if you want to start with a working example.
3/4 <br />
contents of the main left column
1/4 <br />
contents of the right side column
This doesn't work out, because the content of the section definition does not start on a newline. Instead, put the contents on a new line:
---+ Topic title
Overlapping can occur when columns are nested - this is a known bug with the grid library. Even if you don't do the nesting yourself, it can occur if you use a skin with a sidebar that is based on Yahoo Grids.
