Custom Css Questions

I am trying to change the margin from 1.6em to 1.1em of a particular css class.  I have done a lot of custom css to the site (as you can see :)), but for some reason nothing is working for this change.

 

i have tried everything, by adding the following snippets to the custom css tab in pagelines (to name a few):

 

.page-id-174 #highlight section.copy {

margin: 1.1em;

}

 

 

.page-id-174 #highlight .copy {

margin: 1.1em;

}

 

.page-id-174 #section .copy {

margin: 1.1em;

}

 

 

.page-id-174 .copy {

margin: 1.1em;

}

 

I have attached a screen shot of the page and the Google developer tools css output.

 

Any advice would be great.  

 

Thanks!

 

Steve

have you tried removing the  class before the section ID?

 

I haven't found that I've needed to use a prefacing class like that in any of my overrides?

I am putting this code in the custom css tab in pagelines.. so i have to call upon the section and the css to make the change that over rides the css ... you can see the css that i am trying to change in the css_help.jpg

Other factors are in play here which may not be adjusted given the code provided. For example, you also have:

#highlight .copy-pad .highlight-area {
    padding-top: 8px;
}

You should use Firebug's options to identify the CSS elements to test.  It's not hard to do.

I put that padding CSS in myself.. that is not a problem.. i am able to change the padding, but i am not able to change the margin.. i did look at it in firebug and it is the same issue as it is in chrome

 

section.copy {

margin: 1.5 em;

}

 

i have done a ton of css changes to the site.. but for some reason there is no way to change the css this css

 

thanks for the help...

Try using

#highlight section-copy {margin:1.1em 0;}

That code is compiled, thus shortened from the full.  It's presuming that since it follows #highlight, it's associated with it. So, customizing, you need to add the prefix to it.

Rob,

 

Thanks a lot for the advice, but unfortunately it did not work.  It is super odd.  It is the only piece of CSS that I have had trouble editing.

margin: 1.1em 0;
}

      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

      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.

      Hi.
      I can't seem to get the Teamwork section to accept custom css. I am trying to change the padding from 7em to 1em on the splash part
      I have tried
        .pl-sn-teamwork .pl-tw-splash {
          padding-top: 1em;
          padding-bottom: 1em;
        }
       
      This works in chrome inspect but when added to custom css nothing happens.
      I have also tried most of the classes I can see accoiated with this section but again nothng seems to happen.
      Any ideas?
