Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the pagelines framework. I previously was using pagelines pro. I am looking for the section for the Design Control to change the colours on the site menu, etc...

I have only been able to locate the basic layout colours.

Please Advise. Thanks, h

You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS). CSS that changes the style of a page element consists of two parts: the selector and the attribute.

Selector: Used to select the page element you want to change.

Attribute: Property that determines what kind of change you want.

To find the selectors you need, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS.

For help with the attribute, please see: http://w3schools.com/css/default.asp

Thanks for the reply.

Perhaps I am mistaken but I thought that this pagelines framework was an upgrade to the platform pro. Did I purchase the wrong theme? I am looking for much the same features that made customizing the colours and framework easy in platform pro. I don't want to use additional plugins or development tools.

If there isn't the same features in the "upgrade" I don't see the point in upgrading. Thanks,h

PageLines Framework is not upgrade to PlatformPro (PlatformPro no longer has updates). PageLines Framework is a different product with enhancements and features that weren't available in PlatformPro.

Thanks for the reply.

I see that you can add all the elements to the header, body, etc.. now,. At first glance it appears that it functions more or less like platform pro, but it's heavily reliant on plugins and additional editing/development tools, which translates into more time to get the same results in many instances.

We also have a plugin called Simple Css Lite which will install the color setting options you're used to on the previous setup. You can check out Css Lite here. http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/simple-css-lite/


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.

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion but the plugin doesn't work for some reason. Do you know how I would change the colour of the footer? I have tried putting #footer { background: #333333; } in the custom code but it doesn't work. Thanks h

The plugin works with the Nav Classic menu. I suggest using that one, in place of NavBar, for more control over colors.

You can go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop... click "Header" and switch NavBar in Active Sections for Nav Classic in Available Sections. Just swap places.

Once you have Nav Classic, the Simple CSS Lite plugin will work to change colors. I use it on my site and it's fantastic.

Thanks for the reply. I am at this point looking to change the footer colour. This link http://www.pagelines...iki/Custom_CSS. is empty. The footer codes that were suggested on the forum are not working. Where exactly should I go to get an answer?

Yes, that one works. The previous one didn't. Thanks,

Seriously. Isn't there a simpler way to change the footer colour? I really think it's a bit of overkill for me to have to install an interface and figure out on my own how to do something that in platform pro simple.

Hi there, unfortunately you'll have to use css in the framework to adjust the colors of the different sections. At the moment the link you've provided shows no content in the footer area. However the css code to change the footer will be something like the below. To change the colors of the various elements we advise you download firebug or chrome dev tools, either of these will be able to assist you in obtaining/correcting the required css.


#footer {

    background: #000000;

}

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Thanks.
