list item styling inside hero section

Recommended Posts


Hey mateys,


i tried the hero section today and with a little help from this forum i could style the standards like h1, p and such. when inserting a <ul> with a specific class and a <li> with another class, i can't seem to style the list item via the customize plugin.


this ist the html: 

<!-- Hero | Section Template -->
<section id="hero" class="container no_clone section-hero fix"><div class="texture"><div class="content"><div class="content-pad">
	   	<div class="pl-hero-wrap row">

	   	<div class="pl-hero span8">				<h1 class="m-bottom"></h1><h2>Mit der VSV Baden-Württemberg ...</h2><p>... sind sie perfekt ausgestattet:
<ul class:"vorteile">
<li class:"listitem1">vom Ausbildungsbeginn an das Standardwerk zur Hand</li>
<li class:"listitem2">Ergänzungslieferungen bequem im Abonnement</li>
<li>versandkostenfreie Lieferung von Grundwerk und Ergänzungen</li>
<li>schneller Service z.B. für das Nachbestellen fehlender Seiten</li>
</ul></p><a  class="btn btn-important btn-large" href="...">jetzt bestellen</a> 			</div>

	   	<div class="pl-hero-image span4">				<div class="hero_image"><img class="pl-imageframe" src="..." /></div>			</div>





and this ist the css from the customize plugin:


.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h2 { color: #cc0000; font-size: 37px; font-weight:bold; }
.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero p { color: #CC0000; font-size: 16px; font-weight:bold; }
.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero ul.vorteile li.listitem1 li { color: #CC0000; font-size: 16px !important; font-weight:bold !important; }

I'm confused how to select the list item which is not in a div but under a lot of divs and another ul. Any tips guys? (i deleted the respecting real url) I'd like to style it manually.

Try adding the customized CSS to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules.  Sometimes this works where the PL customize plugin does not because of the precedence of the calls made for code in page load.

so the syntax/code seems correct to you? adding this to custom css doesnt do anything either. i added this:


.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero ul.vorteile li.listitem1 li { color: #CC0000; font-size: 16px !important; font-weight:bold !important; }

If you wish to add a unordered list to the Hero section, then you will need to give the <ul> a custom class and then add custom CSS to style your list.


However, an easier method would be to simply use Font Aweome, which will do the hard work for you. For example - http://d.pr/i/S2ER


All I used was the code given on our Font Awesome documentation - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/miscellaneous/font-awesome/


Scroll to the bottom of the page and find the section called Lists, I used the multi-colored code.

      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.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      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?

      Good morning,
      I have set up my homepage using the Elements sections, a Masthead at the top and then a selection of Heroes lower down.
      I only just realised that the Heroes set a H1, as does the Masthead.
      Is there an easy way I can change the Heroes to an H2/H3 etc so as to improve the structure of my headers, whilst keeping the Masthead as H1?
      I really don't know much at all about CSS, which is why I use Pagelines because it's just so easy to create good looking pages without too much confusion.
