Hi There

 

Although my CSS is improving quickly having customised this site with little help, I am still quite a newbie when it comes doing doing some PHP. Can anyone help with achieving a sidebar customisation on this site http://koruhealing.co.nz/home/

 

I have attached a layout file to depict what I want to achieve - many thanks

Hi there, you can achieve that layout using css you won't need to use php. What were you looking to do with the php?

 

Looking at your site you already have the widgets in place, so you'll need to color the widget title background using css and apply a border to the left of the sidebar column. The buttons could be inserted using the pagelines shortcodes on the tools page of the demo :)


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.

ok great I will give it a go.

 

So I put this code in the widget window?:

  1. [pl_button type="success" link="http://google.com" target="blank"]
  2. Success
  3. [/pl_button]

And I could style the button using?:

.pl_button {

......

}

Hi,

 

Add the button shortcode to your text widget replacing the read more link you already have. Then inorder to style your button, I recommend you create your own, use the following:

 

<a class="btn btn-success btn-large" href="URL here">Button_Text</a>

Now what I would do is replace btn-success with your own class, for example:

 

.btn-korugreen

 

Then view the CSS used for the .btn-success and change it so that it uses the style you want and then add it to your custom CSS/LESS.

Thanks for the help Danny, getting on pretty well except I need some help with the following http://koruhealing.co.nz/home/:

  1. The text in the "what others say" section is fine, but the text in the subscribe section is set to "p" (unlike the text in the first sidebar section) and not displaying correctly. How can I setup the text to display the same in both sidebar sections.
  2. Send button is mostly fine except I can't get the selector right to style the hover of that button.
  3. Read more button is all over the show, can you help with the hover styling please and also I wd like this to align left with the left edge of the above text

many thanks

Hi there,

 

In the widget where the text is having <p> tag added, check you've not ticked the checkbox 'automatically add paragraphs' on the text widget in Appearance>widgets.

 

For the hover on the button, it looks like you need to adjust the background-position on the hover effect.

 

.btn:hover { background-position: 9px -30px;}

You can align the text using css too, to move the position of the button you'll need to adjust the margin/padding of the <p> element the button is sitting in.

 

{text-align: left;}

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 for that  - got the text alignment sorted and the bottoms in place, still no luck with the hover states of both buttons. The css you suggested seemed to make it worse:

background-position: 9px -30px;

Any others ideas?

 

Now just need the hover state of the "read more" button to line up, and I can't get a hover effect to work on the "send" button. In both cases I am wanting the hover effect to be the vertical flip of this color gradient :
background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , #7ea24a, #576330);

The issue is you have added some custom CSS which adds a height and width to the button please remove this code, as it is causing the text alignment issue.

 

Also, you have only added the background-image gradient code for mozilla, so your button will only look correct in the FireFox browser, please use Google Chrome web dev tool and inspect a PageLines standard button and copy this code, then make the changes for you new button color.

      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

      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

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.
