You need the equal-height on both column divs so the plugin can check height of the tallest and apply to the other one.

You can send me the files via my contact form I will help you out

Glad i could help a level 10 elite author :)
We’re all human :P:)

Now it’s 2 level 10s and 1 level 9 :D

Humans with more mileage in the web development department – usually i am the one learning from you guys :)

I think that with any template / theme you purchase here on ThemeForest, you will look much better than this specific competitor :D

Since it’s the item request forum, i believe it’s ok for an author to link to their own items – so you can check my Booom! HTML Template (or MODX theme).

If i am not allowed to link, please remove the links and accept my apologies in advance :)

It might not work because you are trying to run the script before (higher in the HTML) the plugin is included.

Anyway, don’t add the jQuery code in your HTML, it’s bad practice. Instead, create another file called “scripts.js”, place it in your /js folder and link to it at the bottom of your HTML file, just before the closing tag (and after the matchHeight file):

<script src="jquery.matchHeight.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="js/scripts.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Also, make sure jQuery is called before these 2 script files.

Then, instead of applying the matchHeight to a row -> col-md-8 (it might happen elsewhere), give a class name to the divs you want the same height: div class=”col-md-8 equal-height” for example.

Then, in your scripts.js file, you can apply the matchHeight plugin to this class, it will be much cleaner this way.

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('.equal-height').matchHeight();
});

Finally, if it’s still not working, you can use the dev tools (chrome -> inspect element -> console) to see if you get any JS errors..

Good luck – hope it helps!

You can use a really cool plugin called jquery.matchHeight for that – it works wonders and is dead simple to set up.

This is why we value your feedback so much!
How many +1s before you flip the avatars to a light gray?

Thanks Iman!


If this guy is looking for a front-end developer but was never heard about ThemeForest, you should not accept his job offer!

In my head, that was the deal breaker, instantly. I have too much love for ThemeForest to let someone in the web design field tell me they don’t know about it :)

Level 9… what colour would that be?

I’m still counting in colours – the Paw Levels still don’t give me a feedback of where an author stands.. although i know it means many, many more sales than me :)

Congratulations!

Awesome story – and very good “in-front-of-the-camera” skills.

This was one of the best presentation so far – i really enjoyed what Calin said about the community.

I agree with every word! :)
