Delete Feature Slider Text Display In Mobile

Recommended Posts

gavclarke

I'm trying to add in Custom Code some css to the feature slider so that the main text displaying below the slider does not display for mobiles as it will always obscure the image. Don't mind if the feature slider title text still displays. I've tried a few tweaks on existing forum posts for related queries, can make the feature slider disappear without prob but not just the text - any help? I've taken out the tweaks now as i wasn't getting anywhere: www.irishlitsoc.org

Hi,

You'll need to use our Browser Specific CSS to hide that element in mobile devices.

However, before I send you on a code writing exercise which could be complicated, which slider are you using? The default feature slider? We do have several responsive feature sliders that work much better in mobile view in our store. Please check the selection in http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections

The problem may be that your slides are set in a fixed size, and in mobile view, the elements of the slider overlap the cropped portion of the image. I notice one slide, for example, shows the full excerpt, but another is clipped in mid-text. Thus I believe a responsive slider is the solution for you.

Hi, yes I'm using the default feature slider, will try browser-specific css ahead of having to purchase a responsive slider, don't see any in the store, can you suggest a name? I expected that the built in one would be fully responsive...

Tabber is probably the best for you. Unfortunately, the default slider works best responsively when the mobile view is disabled in Site Options. Ironically, it's fully responsive then. When mobile view is enabled (default) it has been known to react oddly because of custom CSS or image controls applied to it.

Have you added any CSS specific to the slider?

Try disabling mobile view, temporarily.

Hey

Many thanks, that's resolved it; have disabled mobile view and its working fine - actually much prefer the way the site responds for mobile with mobile view disabled.

I'll stick with the feature slider over Tabber, prefer the clean unfussy style.

FYI on css: i only added a few lines to the slider to give it a cleaner look:

#feature_slider #feature-area {box-shadow: none;}

#feature_slider .text-bottom .fcontent .ftext {

font-size: 14px;

line-height: 1.5em;}

#feature_slider .fcontent .ftitle {

font-size: 16px;

line-height: 1.3em;

vertical-align: left;}

#featurenav { display: none;}

Glad that worked.

However, I think you should validate that CSS here: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input

Using direct input it yields one error. That might be the problem. I think you've used a pre CSS3 snippet.

ok, yep it gives #feature_slider .fcontent .ftitle Value Error : vertical-align null is not a vertical-align value : left

I'll fix it up.

Thanks for your help

Fixed it and the problem persists with text obscuring the slider so just going to go with disabling mobile view

Cheers

      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.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      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
