Home page only font color

Recommended Posts

kashanti

oh man, in changing the page color of my home page, I didn't think about the need to change the font colors for everything on the home page only. How do to this? If to complicated, just let me know, and I will use a lighter shaded color so that I dont have too.

Are you running the Base Theme? If so, you can isolate the CSS for individual pages. You can actually do it another way. But using Base is the best approach --- IMHO

Umm if you mean do I just have the framework with no child theme, then yes I am running the base. If that is not what you mean, then I don't know if I am.

What I mean is now that i have changed the content color to something other than white the colors for some of the text (hyperlinks, etc) are not as easy to see, so I wanted to make them a little darker, but only for the home page.

You just need to add some extra CSS/LESS to your custom styles to modify the text other colors you want to change for that page. You can use the page-specific body classes to make sure these rules only apply to that page.

If your home page is your main blog page with all your posts, your CSS would look something like this:

.blog myselectors { somecss }
If your home page is a normal/static page, your CSS would look something like this:
.home myselectors { somecss }[/code]




Which selectors depend on what elements you want to modify of course, but if you prefix it with the right body class, it will only apply to that page.  This is really easily done in LESS using nesting like this:



[code] .home { div, p { color: #333; // or whatever color } h1,h2,h3,h4,h5 { some other stuff just for this page } } [/code]

Install Base (free). Then do what Evan suggests. It's what I mentioned in my previous comment. But articulated far better!

Just to clarify further, Base theme is available via The Store and as WebWerx points out, is free. That serves as a place to add lots of customizations. However, to make changes to one page, you don't necessarily need that. The CSS that Evan provided may be added to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code under CSS Rules; or, if you have the PageLines Customize plugin, via the style.css sheet there.

PS.. Thanks Evan and WebWerx for your intuitive input!

Hi Kashanti,

What Evan meant by "MySelector" is the selector for your text, view my examples below:


.home p { color: red; }

.home a { color: yellow; }
.home a:hover { color: pink; }

.home h1, .home h2, .home h3, .home h4, .home h5, .home h6 { color: green; }

.home .site-title { color: orange; }[/CODE]

lol ok well that is weird. I pasted in the code above for the .home h1, home. h2, etc and it changed the colors for all the links except two.

I figured it out. some of the headings were listed under title "A" and not H1, H2, etc.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
