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,
      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?

      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

      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.

      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?
