Footer Customization

Recommended Posts

Howdy -

I'm having difficulty identifying which class I need to edit in order to change two things.

I'm adding class specifications in the Paglines "Site Options" code window

1) the bottom border of widget titles

#footer li {list-style-type:none; color: #777777;}

#footer li a:hover {text-decoration: underline; color: #c6870d;}

2) the text color and hover color of footer elements

hr, .fpost, .clip_box, .widget-title, .metabar a, #morefoot .widget-title, #site #dsq-content h3, .navigation_wrap{

/** border-bottom: 1px solid transparent; **/

border-bottom: 1px solid #000;

}

Neither of these snippets are effective. Can you help me identify why they aren't working, or which classes I need to customize?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Can you provide us with an active url, I've looked at the link you have attached to your account and there are no widgets in the footer on that site. Please let us see the url and we'll try and help you track down the css.


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.

Ok looking at the link the widget titles aren't entered into the 'title' field in the widget, therefore they're appearing along with the text inside the widget and don't have a separate class you can edit. So you'll need to move the headings into the title field in order to apply an underline and edit them separately from the rest of the widget content.

To change the color of the footer text use the below code.


#sb_footcols .textwidget {

    color: #ffffff;

}

As most of the content in the columns are links, you'll be able to change the color of them using this code

#footer a, #footer li h5 a {

    color: #BE4D4D;

}

Hope that helps

Thanks very much - that resolves my footer issue.

I didn't clarify sufficiently for the other issue: it's the think stroke (bottom border) that appears beneath the widget title in the "secondary sidebar" area.

I've tried making a stronger bottom border by using:

hr, .fpost, .clip_box, .widget-title, .metabar a, #morefoot .widget-title, #site #dsq-content h3, .navigation_wrap{

/** border-bottom: 1px solid transparent; **/

border-bottom: 1px solid #000;

}

but bottom border for the widget titles in the secondary sidebar is barely legible - I'm not targeting the right class. Any pointers greatly appreciated.

Ah ok, try this


.widget-title {border-bottom: 2px solid #000000 !important;

}

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      }
       
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?
      Thanks

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      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.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.
