I'd like to see all major page sections documented like this (though annotated with a screenshot is even better). accompany it with an indexed wiki and I could die a happy man.

Can you clarify if these are specific to just Platform Pro or are they supposed to apply to all Pagelines products? And will these work in PP 2.0?

The above code was tested on Platform Pro and I will create a new one for PageLines Framework 2.0, on or right after release! If enough people reply, I will do a similar one post for each PageLines theme too!

Omg, this would have saved me so much time if it had been in the documentation - I spent a lot of time figuring this out yesterday. (I guess I should come to the forums *before* I try to figure it out on my own?) :P To me - this stuff is really needed and should be a basic part of the documentation. Thanks again!

Yeah sure, you guys should definitely add some common css tweaks to your documentation.

This is a great idea. I can't tell you how close I have been to smashing my computer trying to figure out CSS.

This is for 1.x and works great for that. So far a lot of this doesn't work in 2.0. I'm using the inspector to try to fix things but the IDs and Classes are sometimes different in 2.0. Correct?

This looks like a good post and I would love to benefit from this. Can somebody please also explain where exactly all these codes needs to go to be able to get the desired result. I did not know its going to take some knowledge of CSS so pardon if this is too dumb a question to be put on this forum. I did try to put the code into the "settings - custom code - css rules area however, could not see any change after saving.
