Css Customizing Don't Work

Recommended Posts


Hi there, I'm having the problem with CSS... I spent so much time reading PageLines forum, but haven't found any answer that is good for me. I'm trying to modify CSS and have to say that I'm not professional. Now, I'm so frustrated because none of the answers works for me... I tried to change style.css in base PageLines theme and in PageLines Customize plugin. I just wanted to change color of the morefoot area and wrote

#morefoot {background: #8dd7f4;}

in the style.css file. I also copied the same code into the Settings/Custom Code area but with no luck.

I have installed Firebug but don't know what and where to look. When I point to the area that I want to change, this is what I get:

<div id="morefoot_area" class="container-group">

<section id="contentbox" class="container no_clone section-contentbox fix">

<div class="texture">

<div class="content">

<div class="content-pad">

<div class="hentry cb-standard">

<div class="hentry-pad cb-standard-pad entry_content">VILLAGE EAST CONDOMINIUM | 305 917 76 73</div>

I can also see this part of the code:

#morefoot {

background-attachment: scroll;

background-clip: border-box;

background-color: #FFFFFF;

background-image: none;

background-origin: padding-box;

background-position: 0 0;

background-repeat: repeat;

background-size: auto auto;


The problem is that no matter what I write into the style.css, the color doesn't change and if I try the same and copy the code into the Custom Code area nothing happens...

I would be very grateful if you could help me to understand where am I making mistake...

Thank you

The issue is that there is no ID of #morefoot. Therefore, your custom CSS will not work, if you view your sites code in Firebug or Chromes Web Dev tool, you can see the ID for the morefoot area is #morefoot_area. If you view your post above, you can see that you have already identified the correct ID for the morefoot section.

I have provided you with the code below to get change your Morefoot ContentBox background color.

#morefoot_area .section-contentbox .content { background: #8DD7F4; }[/CODE]

      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,

      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!
