After spending hours trying, I cannot find a way to apply custom CSS to change the homepage layout which is closest to the one we prefer. Even though we are changing it using chrome develop tools, when we install the change in custom CSS (protean) the system does not show the changes. Someone suggested that it may not be possible to change this, and that I should file a request for more layouts.
top area with content, bar, bar below
The closest you offer is
top area with left and right bars
Consider that if there is an active forum, then the content is where the discussions will be displayed on the homepage because the bars are too small. But if the person uses a phone device, he will have to scroll through the left bar before he can get to the content (50% middle column) and that discourages people from accessing the site.
Leonids discussed this with me already (https://una.io/page/view-discussion?id=3199) but I cannot get it to change using custom CSS even though I can get it done using chrome developer tools.
