You can try add in

PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules

or in

Pagelines Customize (plugin)

It is advisable to learn how to do this on your own too.

Check out http://www.pagelines...wiki/Custom_CSS

Well the problem is i wasnt sure if i need to add custom CSS, one of the reasons i am trying out pagelines is because i know 0 about CSS and little html. And from reviews of this framework i am told it was easy to design a website with little to no code knowledge.

I will give this a try, thanks again

If you create an image as high as you want it (minimally the height of your branding image + 50px), you can do the following:

1. Make sure your Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Layout Editor, under Site Design Mode is set to Full-Width Sections

2. Go to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Color Control (if you're using the default theme or base theme) and upload your image. (This doesn't work in iBlog5 and some other child themes sold via our Store.)

3. Once the image is uploaded, align it to 0 (zero) vertically and 50 horizontally. DO NOT SUPERSIZE.

4. Upload your branding image (logo) in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Website Setup.

5. Go to: Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop (Header is the default). Set up the Branding or BrandNav in the Active Sections, as well as any menus or other items.

6. View the site. Season to taste and serve immediately with a side of noodles!

      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.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)
      Thank you in advance !

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(
