Fix CSS rules for WM-ES main page

completed by: Mateusz Maćkowski

mentors: Platonides

The site is just a MediaWiki install with a custom
skin. The main page blocks (Actividades, Participa, Dona, Blog and the
slideshow) are achieved with a tag which outputs the needed html.

However, there is a bug in the css, which relies on some element of the custom
skin for proper placement. Compare (Good: Actividades,
Participa & Dona at the left) with (Wrong: Actividades,
Participa & Dona appear on top of the slideshow).

Figure out the wrong rules and provide a patch for fixing the issue, so it
works on any skin. Both the html (the php file) and the css can be changed.

See the files at bug 57563.

Since this extension is not in gerrit, the patch shall be provided on
bug 57563.
