Grid Css Padding Effects The Boxes Not Content - Is There A Trick?

Recommended Posts

kate1000

need to set padding for <p> content in box - woildl ike to use css

I can change the color - the font size ( em) and much more but when I go

to add some left padding so that my font wont bump up to the left edge... it bumps over all the boxes in the row

seems that it is sizing the indiivusla box ( in this case: 6 2span boxes under 3 4 span boxes nested in a 12 span box.

 

Any help or experiecne would be super! thanks

 

using

 

.span2.am

{}

 

for those boxes

If you're trying to pad paragraphs specifically, I imagine the best way would be to create a unique class for it.  So, you re-write the tag as <p class="left-spaced">,

 

Then, in your CSS, you'd do something like:

.span2.am p .left-spaced {padding-left:20px;}

Of course, I'm not a CSS pro.  So this is just a bit of a guess.

Ok Im back - very happy !! - that it worked .. but ... very quickly aware that adding padding this way will be a long task

can I pad this on a larger scale?  i know my " page id"  and read some help forum pages that were just outside of my full understanding because

I do have the page number thanks to that. can I use

 that to make the chages on a large

r scale? thanks

Doing a page ID is kind of pointless, because it's still tons of work.

 

The solution is to use the left-spaced class in any paragraph where you want it.

 

Then, in the CSS solution I guessed at, just remove the .span.am part.  Then, sitewide, any time you apply the left-spaced class, that paragraph will have the same padding as the CSS prescribes.

 

Just remember to use the class.

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      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.
