Custom Css Questions

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      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
