Recommended Posts

I am wondering if there is some code i can use for full width areas for headers, or content areas, the same effect as when you add the carousel to the page. Is this possible?

You can adjust the header and content widths with Custom CSS. For further instructions on how to use Custom CSS for this customization, please see: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS


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

ok thanks, i have managed to add full background to the content sections, however i just want it to be applied to the first content section, yet i can find the id i have been testing some out, but nothing works. www.cheap-webdesigns.co.uk the code i am using is: #contentbox { padding:-35px; width:100%; background-color:#202020; box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #000000;}

Also while we are here, is there any way i can get the content in this section only to go full width aswell? i have tried some coding such as content width but it doesnt work.

Thanks.

You're only using content box at the top of the page, so the selector #contentbox should work. You should try adding #page before #contentbox.

i have managed to add full background to the content sections within pagelines, however i just want it to be applied to the first content section which i am using for the slider

i cant find the id for the individual content box, as there are two on the homepage;

The code i am using is: #contentbox { padding:-35px; width:100%; background-color:#202020; box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #000000;}

Well first of all, you're using a negative value in padding, padding doesn't support negative values, so there is no need for that to be added to your code.

You can use the following to style the ContentBox that is in your header.

#header section-contentbox { }[/CODE]

Also, you shouldn't use ID's for targeting sections, all sections have a class, you should use that instead.

thats brilliant, thanks again, learning so much every day.

Once last question, is there a CSS rule i can apply to make the content of this section full width i.e just the content box, so that the slider within can be full width without affecting the sites content width?

thanks

Add the following, you may need to make changes to your slider settings to make it full width.


#header .section-contentbox .content {
width: 100%;
max-width: 100%;
}[/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,

      Hi!

      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!
