Updated pagelines to Custom CSS Error

Recommended Posts

iamtheeverydaygirl

Hi there --

I finally updated pagelines to the most recent version and received this message:

PageLines Custom LESS/CSS error.

parse error: failed at ` /”> ` line: 845

When I click the error (at the top of the page) - I'm sent over to the CSS code. Tried to figure out the problem, delete some stuff, move it around, etc -- but everytime I hit the "save" button, I get this weird error message:

Request-URI Too Large

The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.

No idea where to go from here!

I'm also trying to upload a new plugin -- and I upload the zip and hit "install" and .... nothing. Not sure if I need to fix this custom css problem first?

Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you !!

Hi,

Basically the Parse error means you have a minor error in your custom CSS, this could be a missing ; or }

All you need to do is review your custom CSS and find the error. We now use the LESS CSS processor. LESS CSS is far less forgiving as standard CSS and you wont get away with any errors.

The "Request-URL Too Large", simply means that the URL is simply too large, this is an issue with your server URL length limit.

If you're having issues installing a plugin, its probably related to a memory limit on your server. Therefore, would it be possible to provide your PHP server info please. You can do this by reading the link below.

Hi --

I fixed the plugin problem -- needed to update another plugin.

As far as the CSS, I know that I need to fix something in my custom CSS, but everytime I try to make a change I get that request error. Here's the thing -- I haven't changed servers, I'm on the same computer and network as before and I've never, ever seen this message. Have made changes before I updated in my custom css and it saved w/out giving me that error message.

Not sure how to make the url smaller ....

Just posted another topic because now my pages won't let me edit them - so not sure if this is all connected?

Great -- thank you Simon, that shows exactly where the problem is.

BUT -- here's the thing, since I upgraded I cannot "save" ANY page under my "Global Settings" in pagelines. Everytime I attempt to make a change and hit "save" - I get this message:

"Request-URI Too Large

The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server."

**********

Yesterday, before I upgraded, I made a change under my global settings and hit "save" without a problem. After the upgrade, it is telling me that the url is too large, but I am on the same computer, the same server, everything.

This is driving me nuts! Do you have any idea what could have happened w/ the upgrade???

Thank you!!

Talk to your host they have a limit set for POST requests in PHP, and its way too restrictive.

Simon -- quick question. My host is trying to fix it, but it's still not working. They're asking me "how large of a post size your software requires, or if there are any other attributes which might need to be modified?"

Would you happen to know that?? Thanks!

On my server, I have the post_max_size set to 8M and have no issues. Hope that helps!

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      }
       
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?
      Thanks

      Looking for some help on a recently developed issue. Editor will not load. 
      Theme:  DMS2
      Error from:  Chrome - Inspector - console view
      Error message: Refused to execute script from 'http://xxxx.xxx/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/editor/js/gettext.js/?ver=4.9.7' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.
      Occurs on all sites on same server. 
      WP versions to 4.9.5, 4.9.6, 4.9.7 = same behavior. Worked properly on these same versions until 07/04/2018.
      No new plugins. Isolating plugins offers same behavior. 
      Server vendor reports no changes, patches, etc. 
      Server re-starts no impact.  

      Thank you.

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.
