Framework V2.3 - missing CSS???

Recommended Posts


Is Framework V2.3 misisng the core CSS codig in the style.css file? It appears this is the case - as I have attempted a brand new WP install, and with no other plugins, installing V2.3 and activating it leaves a broken page layout and no styling. adding base child theme, and then alternatively loading "simplicate" child theme (purcased form pagelines store) also result in broken page layout and styling.

I have had to go back to V2.1 (but that has a javascript conflict in the admin area (settings pages)... sigh.)

Hi there, the framework is now 100% LESS so you'll have a style.less sheet now. I've checked the link you've provided and the site seems to be displaying fine, have you managed to resolve this?

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.

The site is not the one being developed. That one is online but hidden to non-lodded in visitors.

And had missed the bit about LESS.... and know nothing about it (except the site does not display usefully)... so without time to go up that learning curve (it doesn't work out of the box at all!) I'dd stay back on legacy versions.

The conversion from style.css to style.less created a few minor changes in some css elements. If you had any previous custom CSS, you might see some variation on the way your site looks. It should be relatively easy to reset the changed code by hacking a #page in front of it. You can test that using Firebug or Chrome's Inspection tools.

While it's easy to roll back to 2.2.5, at some point updating will be essential.

That's definitely strange to hear your having such trouble after the upgrade. I have installed 2.3 myself on several sites and haven't had any problem with it yet.

Perhaps your files were corrupted when you downloaded 2.3? Have you tried re-downloading it? If not, definitely give that a try.

A quick comment about LESS - it's a dynamic stylesheet language that compiles into CSS, but pure css is still A-OK to use, so you don't need to learn anything extra unless you want to. LESS is really handy and a very cool newer feature of the framework - since 2.0!

Thanks for the repsonses everyone. Moved to a new server and found it was something in the configuration which I don't understand... but suddenly, hey presto, fixed - simply imported the cPanel account, then auo-updated thetheme framework from legacy to latest, and all works like a charm. I am *assuming* it was the hosting environment.

At ay rate, topic closed but without any insights sorry.

      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.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?

      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks
