Best Css Practises

Recommended Posts

I’m going to use the custom menu widget in the content sidebar and locate the sidebar just above my content. However I need the menu items to be listed in a single horizontal line. I was just wondering what CSS would be best to use?

 

.widget ul li {

    float: left;

}

 

or

 

.widget ul li {

    display: inline;

}

 

Here’s a link to my site and the page I’m using this menu on.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the reply.

 

As I’m going to be using a number of different menus i need to be able to target one particular menu and i was wondering which class I could use? I’m using firebug to find the correct one and using the customize plugin but I’m not having any luck.

 

Obviously .widget ul li will change widgets contained within the sidebar area but i need to locate the specific widget menus I’ll be using within the sidebars

 

Ive tried .menu-about-menu-container but that didn’t affect it.

Hi,

 

I don't see any menus in your sidebar, have you disabled the widget ?

Hi sorry I dont think i explained it as well as i could have. Im basically using the Universal Sidebar above the content and then using the Custom Menu widget within this sidebar. So the menu im looking to edit on the About page (http://www.priceofmilk.co.uk/about) is the menu above the content that contains: Editorial Team, Contribute to DYC and Submissions. Its currenlty displayed in a vertical list but i would like to edit this, ill be using different custom menus on different pages so I need a way to edit them on an individual basis.

 

Is there an easier way to set a secondary navigation? I know its possible do set Secondary Nav on pages however I would also need a way to set a Secondary Nav on category pages and Single Post pages.

 

Structure Example

 

Parent Page (Main Nav)

- Child Page (Secondary Nav)

- Child Page (Secondary Nav)

- Child Page (Secondary Nav)

 

Parent Category (Main Nav)

- Child Category (Secondary Nav)

- Child Category (Secondary Nav)

- Child Category (Secondary Nav)

If you inspect your menu, you will notice that each of the menu items is given a unique class. For example, the Editorial Team has the following class:

 

menu-item-7784

 

So you can use this to style the menu items.

 

Example

 

.menu-item-7784 {
background: red;
}


.menu-item-7784 a {
color: white;
}

Thanks, using the id's ive managed to achieve the layout i need with the menu items in a horizontal line.

 

Im using the following css

 

.menu-item-7784 {
float: left;
}

.menu-item-7785 {
float: left;
}

.menu-item-7783 {
float: left;
}

 

 

but I was wondering if i could just combine it to something like this

 

.menu-item-7784 .menu-item-7785 .menu-item-7783 {

float: left;

}

 

Ive tried various combinations but the only CSS i can get to work is the first set of code where they are not combined.

Hi

Please you can try with

 

.menu-item-7784, .menu-item-7785, .menu-item-7783 {float: left;}

Life is too short to remove USB safely ...

Use the class instead of the ID, as ID can over power everything else. Also Batman's suggested code above should work.

 

I recommend if you need further assistance with CSS, you visit the W3 Schools website - http://www.w3schools.com/css/

      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.

      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

      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
