Hello joster,
The right-column layout is by design.
If you insist on having it at left go at the theme settings in the administration and there you will found section named 'Custom Head Styles'. Paste the following there:

.blog-pages-body .side-2 {
    float: left;
.blog-pages-body .center-2 {
    float: right;

Hope that will help


I tried as you suggested, but nothing changes on my site.
I added the styles to my theme/customer head styles and no change...
I added the styles directly to the styles.css after the other blog styles and no change...

Finally, I tried adding them to the end of the /plugins/sevenspikes.nop.plugins.richblog/themes/uptown/richblog.css file...

This worked.

Nevermind...problem solved.

I gave the chat badge a class and added this class to my 980.css:

.header-selectors-wrapper .chatbadgedesktop {
  position: relative;

I figured out how to hide it behind the Gear putting the chat DIV inside the header-selectors-wrapper DIV.
However...this makes the chat image appear in the wrong position on desktops...
The chat image looks best on desktops when I put its DIV after the search-box store-search-box DIV.

Is my only option to leave it in the header-selectors-wrapper DIV and use absolute positioning in the 980.css to position the chat badge correctly?
Or is there another option?

We've recently purchased the Uptown theme and I'm using it to develop our new website (3.90).
On our site, we only have one currency and one language, so in mobile devices, the "gear" icon has no use. our header, we have a LIVE CHAT badge appearing. This is good for Desktops, but it takes up too much space on mobile devices.
So, we want to hide it "inside" the gear icon.

How would I do this?
Where do I need to put my chat badge DIV in order for it to be hidden behind the gear icon for mobile devices?

Also, would it be possible to insert links to other pages inside the same "gear icon" div?Please explain.

Thank you!


I've got the Uptown theme installed on our 3.90 development site and for some reason, the Rich Blog plugin has a right-column layout instead of the left-column layout shown on the rich blog demo page.

How would I go about changing this?

Hi Sapphire,

you can achieve this result with the Html Widgets plugin, which allows you to place everything ( including video ) to a certain place(s) on your page(s).

Have you considered it?

I think this is a great suggestion!
We're also interested in this same functionality, and the HTML widget doesn't really cut it for our purposes because we want to display the video slides responsively within the main slider div.

I hear you...
I'm not really thinking of including any more than just the main body elements, header elements like logo and search box, master column wrapper and maybe the styles from the mega menu in my critical styles in the head.

I was thinking of maybe just using a  

  on the header-links-wrapper and main-slider in the head critical styles so they won't appear until the actual stylesheet in the footer is loaded.

Thanks for the information!


We are currently running 3.40 of nopC and the Alfresco theme and in an effort to improve our Google PageSpeed Insights score, I want to move our bundled/minified stylesheet references into the footer and utilize inline critical path CSS to at least load some elements and hide other elements until the stylesheets in the footer have rendered.

I'm having trouble determining which styles are absolutely essential to having my pages begin to load without looking "un-styled" for a moment.
Has anyone using Alfresco theme put together a critical path CSS they'd be willing to share with me?

Also, we are planning to upgrade to 4.0 this winter and wondering if you guys have considered building this functionality into the themes so as to allow nop store owners to choose the location (header/footer) for their styles to be rendered and if so, which page element styles should be included in the inline "critical path" CSS.

Yes, upgrading the plugin should fix your issue. The fix is available in the recent version of the 3.4 - 3.4.1168.22998

Hope this helps!

Okay, I will upgrade it tonight.
Can you confirm whether it is essential that I also upgrade the core plugin or not?

I recently (you may remember my support ticket) had a problem with different versions of the plugins causing problems on my website, and everything is working well, so I am hesitant to upgrade the Core plugin if not necessary.
