Vertical line in blog post

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.relativelygenealogy.com/blog/Blog%20Post%20Title%20One-e8l8p

I'm just setting up what I hope to be my blog post template. I've set up a side bar and would like to create a vertical line that separates the article body from the sidebar. Is there any way to set one up that starts from the top of the photo to the bottom of the article body?

I was able to set up a vertical line but only with an exact measurement like 300px, but not one that will change with the size of the article depending on how much text is in it. Any help would be appreciated.

Try adding to Home > Design > Custom Css

.blog-item-content .sqs-layout > .row > .col:first-child {
  position: relative;
}
.blog-item-content .sqs-layout > .row > .col:first-child:after {
  content:'';
  display: block;
  width: 1px;
  height: 100%;
  background: rgb(142,141,141);
  position: absolute;

Thanks so much! Looks great on desktop but doesn't look good on mobile. What can I do to remove it for mobile view?

Change above code to this

@media screen and (min-width:992px) {
.blog-item-content .sqs-layout > .row > .col:first-child {
  position: relative;
}
.blog-item-content .sqs-layout > .row > .col:first-child:after {
  content:'';
  display: block;
  width: 1px;
  height: 100%;
  background: rgb(142,141,141);
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  right:30px;
}

}
