Recommended Posts

Take a look at my site http://tinyurl.com/cosv8ge

I'm trying to change the position of a custom script that I installed into the header scripts. The script displays a custom greeting on the site depending on the time of day. I want the greeting to be above the telephone number in the header but i'm struggling to achieve this.

The script is as follow:


<span class="xdate"><?php echo date('l jS F Y'); ?></span>

<script language="Javascript" type="text/javascript">

<!--

var day = new Date();

var hr = day.getHours();

if (hr <= 11)

   {

   document.write("Good Morning...");

   }

else if (hr > 11 && hr < 17)

   {

   document.write("Good Afternoon...");

   }

else

   {

   document.write("Good Evening...");

   }


//-->

</script>

Can anyone help?

thanks

Hi,

You would need to wrap in a div to position it however, Javascript isn't really my forte.


Please search our forums, before posting!

I have managed to wrap it in a div, but i'm struggling to:

1. bring the div to the front, so it sits on top of the header

2. It's currently set to 50px off the right but its doing this off the side of the browser window, rather than the right hand side of the web page

grateful for any help

1. You may need to adjust the z-index: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_pos_z-index.asp

2. The left/right margins need to be changed: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_margin.asp

Please see this documentation for further instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS

thanks for the replies, I have managed to position the div on top now with an outlandish z-index figure of 999. I'm still having trouble with positioning the div above the phone number in the header. The margins seem to be working off the edge of the browser window rather than the edge of the web pages? any ideas how i define that??

Scripts that output stuff for display on the page like this really don't belong in the headerscripts as it will output in the <head> tag. You're better off adding this code with a php hook in your child theme's functions.php file.


<?php

add_action('pagelines_inside_top_branding', 'branding_greeting');

function branding_greeting() {

?><div id="custom_greeting">

<script type="text/javascript">

<!--

var day = new Date();

var hr = day.getHours();

if (hr <= 11)

	 {

	 document.write("Good Morning...");

	 }

else if (hr > 11 && hr < 17)

	 {

	 document.write("Good Afternoon...");

	 }

else

	 {

	 document.write("Good Evening...");

	 }


//-->

</script>

</div>

<?php

}

That will get you a lot closer to where you want it, and then you won't need such hardcore CSS to wrestle it into place.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Evan, thanks for your reply.

I added your code to the functions.php file located in /wp-content/themes/pagelines/functions.php

and was returned with the following error when I reloaded the page...

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /websites/123reg/LinuxPackage22/ll/oy/ds/lloydspropertyagents.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/pagelines/functions.php on line 24

Any ideas?

thanks

J

Evan didn't point you to the correct functions.php. Please remove the code from where you placed it.

The code he provided should work if you have the pagelines-customize plugin installed. In there, you'll find a functions.php. Just tack his code at the end.

Alternatively, if you're using a child theme, like Base, you can use the functions.php inside the child theme folder.

You'll get errors when using the core files.

      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?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      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

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.

      Hi.
      I can't seem to get the Teamwork section to accept custom css. I am trying to change the padding from 7em to 1em on the splash part
      I have tried
        .pl-sn-teamwork .pl-tw-splash {
          padding-top: 1em;
          padding-bottom: 1em;
        }
       
      This works in chrome inspect but when added to custom css nothing happens.
      I have also tried most of the classes I can see accoiated with this section but again nothng seems to happen.
      Any ideas?
