i need help aligning nodes in the views grid style. Each of my rows has 2 nodes but the problem am facing is that they are not aligned. in each row one node is slightly higher than the other. How can i create fixed grid dimensions so that each row is inline?

I use the ccs_injector module to add css snippets to fix alignment issues like the one you described.

For example, the css I used to assign even widths on a 4 column grid and to vertically align the content:

td.col-1, td.col-2, td.col-3, td.col-4 {
width: 25%;
vertical-align: top;
text-align: center;
}

    You could use a single td declaration as well :) – giorgio79 Apr 12 '12 at 20:07

I have not worked with grids specifically, but in general layout is managed using css and theming. If you have not gotten into theming in Drupal yet you will need to get familiar with it. Check google, there are many good tutorials. You will also need a tool such as firebug, an add-on for the Firefox browser.

    Are you familiar with firebug and Drupal theming? Firebug will tell you exactly what classes are determining the appearance in the view grid. You can then test the settings to find what you want and change them using a custom.css file – Ashlar Nov 23 '11 at 18:05
