Need help with Pagelines search bar color

Recommended Posts

darthkaos

How can I change the search bar color and focus color to be different than the page background color scheme that I have selected? I have a dark brown as my page background color, but it makes the search bar dark as well which drowns out the search text.

Hi

darthkaos

You can use de Nav Classic with the "Simple CSS Lite" plugin found in the PageLines Store to change all parameters.

It's a free plugin that allows you control over the color of the menu.

Simple CSS Lite only works on the standard navigation, it don´t work on NavBar.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

I have the Simple CSS Lite, and I am using the Nav Classic, but it only controls the menu items, menu hover, and nav bar background, not the search bar.

Thanks James, that got me in the right direction. It changed the search bar background while not in focus, but when you click on it and bring it onto focus it changes to the dark brown again. I think I just need to add the :focus selector to the CSS to get it to work.

You can prove with

.searchform .searchfield, .wp-caption, #soapbox .fboxinfo, code, pre { background-color: #FFFFFF !important;}

Thanks guys,

I was able to accomplish it with adding this following code into the custom css.


.searchform .searchfield { background: #835F51; text-color: #FFFFFF; }

.searchform .searchfield:focus { background: #FFFFFF; }

      In Platform 5, Using Framework Section for Content , I have set the hyperlink colors in the CUSTOMIZE section.   However, none of the pages are properly displaying the link colors.   Just defaulting to black, and underline on hover.   I did not see where this would be controlled at the page level or lower

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers
