Am I suspended or something?

Hi.

I am posting this here because I can't post anywhere else.

I want to post a query in the CSS customisations part of the forum, but it says 'You cannot start a new topic.' Does this mean i have been suspended? Is it because I'm in the UK and it's late? I'm really stuck and don't know where to turn to, without being able to post in the forums. Any help would be most welcome.

Hi Rudi, no you've not been suspended :-)

 

If you're a Platform Pro user you'll only be able to be able to paste on the Platform forum at http://www.pagelines.com/forum/forum/44-platformpro/

 

If you've upgraded and don't have the right access for the theme you've on let us know your username.

 

What's your question, paste it here and we'll go from there

Hi. I am on Platform Pro, and have been able to post in the forums up until today. My userrname is rud10.

 

Anyway, I've been troubled by Firebug for the last couple of hours. Having pasted the Twitter-generated widget into my text widget, for my sidebar, I am now using Firebug to change the 'Tweets' text in the header to 'TWEETS'. I managed to change it in Firebug, which gave me the following CSS:

 

 

.var-narrow .timeline-header .summary {
    font-size14px;
    text-transformuppercase;
}
 
However, when I paste this into my custom css/less area, nothing happens. I am wondering why, and have tried lots of alternatives. I thought I was getting the knack of Firebug, but it's a tricky old thing, as I'm finding out. Any help you could provide me with, James, would be much appreciated.

Hi Rudi, can you disable your coming soon plugin so we can see on the live page the widget

Try the following,

.timeline-header h1.summary {
    text-transform: uppercase;
}

If that doesn't work add !important as it's coming from a plugin they might have something overruling it.

 

.timeline-header h1.summary {
    text-transform: uppercase !important;
}

 

Let us know how you get on.

Hi, James.

 

No, unfortunately neither of these are having any impact, which is rather frustrating.

Hmmm ok, try

 

 

.timeline-header .summary a:link {
    text-transform: uppercase !important;}

No luck with that, either, I'm afraid.

Wow, whoever wrote this has hidden that well.  Last thing I can think to try is the below.

 

#twitter-widget .timeline-header h1.summary a.customisable-highlight {text-transform: uppercase !important;}

Nope, it's still staying in lowercase, as stubborn as ever!

I have no idea what they've used to set that, we've tried all the classes that are showing. Whats the name of the plugin?

Sorry. Fell asleep. It is from Twitter's own widget creator, which I then pasted into a text box widget.

Hi Rudi,

 

I can't see the site because of the Coming Soon plugin, but I'm going out on a limb here suggesting that it's possible the Twitter plugin is just incompatible with PlatformPro.  If the plugin uses Twitter Bootstrap, it may be incapable of dealing with the older Platform which wasn't specifically designed to work with Bootstrap, as is PageLines Framework (the current product).

 

The best possible suggestion I can make is to upgrade to PageLines Framework as soon as possible. That may provide the opportunity to accomplish your goal, however, I suspect that the plugin is being very specific.   Can you provide, as James asked, the name of the plugin, that we may test it?

 

Thanks so much.

Hello there.

The widget is created via Twitter .You can create your own widget as an option within Twitter (https://twitter.com/settings/widgets). It generates code (<a class="twitter-timeline" data-dnt="true" href="https://twitter.com/PastAmore" data-widget-id="306395567322439681">TWEETS by @PastAmore</a>

<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>). that you then just copy and paste into a text box widget).
 
In terms of my account, I thought I did have the latest version. I will have to upgrade. Thanks for letting me know. I have taken the coming soon plugin away from my site.
 
Much thanks.

<a class="twitter-timeline"  href="https://twitter.com/epicuruscom"  data-widget-id="318058906632978432">Tweets by @epicuruscom</a>
<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>

I did just what you suggested, following the link you provided and created the Twitter Widget.  It looks exactly as it should, without any errors as you can see at www.epicurus.com/members (my test area).  There doesn't seem to be any issue with PageLines Framework.  But, if you're still using PlatformPro, there may be, or, if you have other plugins, they may be conflicting with this widget.

 

Do you have a cache plugin? If so, don't deactivate it, but clear the cache.  I still see a Coming Soon page.

 

Can you go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and tell me what theme is activated there?

 

Thanks.

Hi there. When I go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes it states that the Pagelines Framework version 2.4.1 is what I'm using. Do I still need to upgrade?

 

Anyway, I have re-checked that the coming soon page is gone. It should have now.

 

Thanks.

No, you don't need to upgrade that.  I'll modify your profile which says you're using a much older product.

Okay. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. Also, I'm intrigued by the Developer / Business License With Plus package. Would you suggest this, and also, would I have to pay the whole $197 dollars, or is there an existing customer discount I could get?

Hi,

 

If you write to hello@pagelines.com, they will be happy to provide you an upgrade price (a discount), so you don't pay full price. 

 

I investigated further, and it seems the issue is that the widget is simply pulling that that text's controls from Twitter.  They control it, so even if you apply CSS to your site, you'll not be able to re-style that text.  I went through every possible option but nothing worked and on reviewing it, the source of the styling is outside the scope of any styling, coming directly from Twitter.
