Grid (Columns)

For laying out content on a page, the core hub framework includes styles for a 12-column grid.

The grid supports up to 12 columns with span# and offset# classes.

Each column must have a .col class. The last column in a set must have the .omega class added for IE 7 to work properly. No clearing div is required.

For example, a four column grid would look like:

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3 omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

Output:

...

Spanning Columns

Columns can be spanned to easier portion content on the page. In the following example, we span the first 6 columns in a container, then follow with two, smaller 3 column containers for a 3-column layout where the first column takes up 50% of the space.

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span6">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3 omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

Output:

...
...

Offsets

Columns may also be offset or 'pushed' over.

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span3 offset3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3 omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

Output:

Helper Classes

.span-quarter
Span 3 columns. This is equivalent to .span3
.span-third
Span 4 columns. This is equivalent to .span4
.span-half
Span 6 columns. This is equivalent to .span6
.span-two-thirds
Span 8 columns. This is equivalent to .span8
.span-three-quarters
Span 9 columns. This is equivalent to .span9

A four column grid with the helper classes:

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span-quarter">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span-quarter">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span-quarter">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span-quarter omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

There are equivalent .offset- classes as well:

.offset-quarter
Offset 3 columns. This is equivalent to .offset3
.offset-third
Offset 4 columns. This is equivalent to .offset4
.offset-half
Offset 6 columns. This is equivalent to .offset6
.offset-two-thirds
Offset 8 columns. This is equivalent to .offset8
.offset-three-quarters
Offset 9 columns. This is equivalent to .offset9

Markup for a four column grid with the offset helper class:

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span-quarter">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col offset-quarter span-quarter">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span-quarter omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

Output:

Nesting Grids

The following is an example of a 3 column grid nested inside the first column of another 3 column grid.

<div class="grid">
	<div class="col span6">
		<div class="grid">
			<div class="col span4">
				...
			</div>
			<div class="col span4">
				...
			</div>
			<div class="col span4 omega">
				...
			</div>
		</div>
	</div>
	<div class="col span3">
		...
	</div>
	<div class="col span3 omega">
		...
	</div>
</div>

Output:

...

Notifications

<p class="passed">Success message</p>

Success message

<p class="info">Info message</p>

Info message

<p class="help">Help message</p>

Help message

<p class="warning">Warning message</p>

Warning message

<p class="error">Error message</p>

Sections & Asides

The majority of hub components have content laid out in a primary content column with secondary navigation or metadata in a smaller side column to the right. This is done by first wrapping the entire content in a div with a class of .section. The content intended for the side column is wrapped in a <div class="aside"> tag. The primary content is wrapped in a <div class="subject"> tag and immediately follows the .aside column.

Note: The .aside column must come first in order for the content to be positioned properly. If, unfortunately, this poses a semantic problem, we recommend using the grid system as a potential alternative.

Using aside & subject differs from the grid system in that the .aside column has a fixed width with the .subject column taking up the available left-over space. In the grid system, every column is flexible (uses a percentage of the screen) and cannot have a specified, fixed width.

Example usage:

<section class="section">
	<div class="section-inner">
		<div class="aside">
			Side column content ...
		</div>
		<div class="subject">
			Primary content ...
		</div>
	</div>
</section>
