Delete Feature Slider Text Display In Mobile

Recommended Posts

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

      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

      Hi,
       
      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
       
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
       
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
       
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      This just happened to a site I'm working on. When I decrease width of browser to check for responsiveness...the pagelines content section is not responding???

      While building my website, I set a padding of 5%, 25%, 5%, 25% so the text on the pages is not too wide.
      However, it looks crappy on mobile.
      How do I get the same effect and still have it look good on mobile?
      Example: http://yemoonyah.com/quiz
      Thanks
