Hi everyone, i am rebuilding my website from scratch and i would like to start using the PostPins section.

I managed to customize it pretty much, it a good plugin which allowed me that but i a cannot find the part of the code where i can change the number of words or the size of the summary / excerpt section to add more rows / words not just 3 as it comes by default. Photo attached.

Anyone knows how to do this?

It is best not to edit the section code (because these changes will be overwritten by section updates). You'll need to use the base theme in order to make non-destructive edits.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

I am not editing the section code, i am using an External css file which i am importing in the main css of the theme :) The question remains open.

You would have to edit the section to change the excerpt length:


custom_trim_excerpt($p->post_content, 25),
[/CODE]

Thank you Simon.

Is this the only choice, to edit the section? No css code to be altered and imported not to affect the main code?

P.s. Dublin was great for me this year, that city rulz! :)

CSS wont affect the excerpt size unless you restrict the actual size of the area the excerpt goes in i suppose.

Yea Dub is great for a night out alright, did you go into Temple Bar?

You think there is a way? The height code in the css i think is auto bsed on the line height and font size. I have to play with that but i am kind of newbie, maybe i looked at the wrong part of the code? Any help will be appreciated!

About Temple Bar, been there 3 times but alwas during day evening never late night, i will try that in 2 weeks when i will be in dublin for 6 weeks or so. If all my coding will go fine i'll offer a beer :)))

I was there few weeks ago, in the templebar hotel, lucky for me the room was above the nightclub, yea sleepless night there lol

Only thing i can suggest is you set a max-height for whatever the container the text is in, and force it to stay at one height.

The original css code for the classes .pin-excerpt and .summary that contains the text has this for max-height and min-height:
  • max-height: none;
  • max-width: none;
  • min-height: 0px
  • min-width: 0px;

I changed the values to some rondom values like 200 px for max-height and nothing happened, then for min-height and the space there it is now bigger but blank, still 3 rows of text only.

Well, i think that is for ME to decide not you RockStar! The thread stays open until more persons will contribute as you never know who had a better idea!

I know marketing rules makes you resolve stuff fast as it shows the team is professional or so but again, my problem can be solved in other ways so it stays OPEN with all the respect, also the one you should have for customers and respect their ways to feel contented or not!

Simon, is one of our developers and if he says the above, then there isn't any other way to resolve your issue. Therefore, I have resolved the topic.

      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?
