Styling Of Menu

Recommended Posts

manul

Hi

 

I am new to pagelines framework (2.3.8) and I have a very hard time to style te main menu as I want.

 

The site is: http://psykologmariavinding.dk/

 

The menu bar is looking like the standard pagelines menu bar, but I want it to look a more scandinavian/sober way like in the following site, which I am pretty sure is using Pagelines (as the designer is always using pagelines).

 

http://www.sarahkoelpin.com/

 

Basically I want to be able to control the...

 

1. Bacground color of the whole line

2. Background color

3. Background color of the active menu item

4. Background color of the hover menu item

5. Font color

6. Font color of the active menu item

7. Font color of the hover menu item

8. I want to suppress round corners.

 

and the same with submenus.

 

But whatever I have tried to taget to (with help of Chrome elements), It didn't work properly. :-(

 

I would be great to have that on a doc, as it is quite basic. 

 

 

Help will very much be appreciated.

Regards
Emmanuel

Hi Emmanuel

 

From looking at the site you've listed for inspiration it seems as if they as using the 'nav classic' opposed to the navbar which you have on your site. If you swap the two over in the header section of the drag and drop and then use the css lite plugin to be able to color the menus.

 

The classic nav menu will allow you to copy the menu layout and the plugin will allow you to make the changes to the colors, you can find css lite here - http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/simple-css-lite/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks, I'll look at it right away, and see whether I can figure how to use the nav classic out!  :-)

It's not clear to me how you select the nav classic. Do you do it but just clicking for the dropdown like in the picture?

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,
      Todd

      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.

      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 :-)

      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.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
