Wrap your words in a span like this...



<span class="course_1">Courses</span> for <span class="children_1">Children</span>



then use some css...



.course_1 {
    color: blue;

When I created the box, I filled in the "title" section with the heading. R u saying I can use the html section of the "edit box" page to put in my heading?

Hey great that worked!


Except it has knocked out the html and/or css for the learn more button links below the text in the boxes section.
Any clues on how to fix this?

I'm not sure how those buttons were supposed to look.  Do you have an old screenshot?

see on this link that the buttons have gone to the standard primary button display - http://janetnicol.co.nz/?page_id=23

This what they where styled to look like  (the hover state as per the css below) before I put the html into the box title:



This is the css I used to style the button:

.btn {
    background: url(http://janetnicol.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/readmore-bk3.jpg) no-repeat top left;
    width: 155px;
    height: 46px;
        color: #fff;
    border: none;
        cursor: pointer;
        display: inline-block;
    font-family: 'Domine';
        font-size: 14px;
    margin-top: 15px;
        padding: 11px 0px 0px 25px;
        text-align: left;
        text-shadow: none;
        vertical-align: middle;
    box-shadow: none;}
.btn:hover {
    background: url(http://janetnicol.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/readmore-bk3-HOVER.jpg) no-repeat top left;}

Adding a span to the title, wouldn't cause the .btn class to not load an image. However, not sure why you have changed the .btn code by adding a background-image to it.


The button code I provided in another post, gives the button a few classes, for example


class="btn btn-large btn-primary"


You can simply replace btn-primary and add your own using the primary CSS as a template to create your own button.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Ok I think I am starting to understand, this is the html I have placed in the "edit box" section: <a href="http://janetnicol.co.nz/?page_id=37" class="btn btn-large btn-box">LEARN MORE</a>

naming my class btn-box. - is that what you mean't?


But the css is not taking effect, in my css file I have tried the following:

.btn-box {.....

This one makes the hover effect work but not the static state  - #boxes .btn {.......

.btn btn-large btn-box {.....


not sure why this is not working? I had it working before I added button icon links for social media in the footer - maybe there is a clash of code happening now?

Hi there, I'm not really sure I'm following on the last post. But if you've made your own class for the button like in Danny's example you'll need to apply the your custom css for both states in order for it to work, there shouldn't be a clash unless you've used the same class elsewhere on the site.


.btn-box {..... would be the static state, 

.btn-box :hover {..... would be the hover state. 

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      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 -

      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.
