successful changes in firebug do not result in successful changes in css.  The changed elements look perfect in firebug but do not result in changes to the page when entered verbatim in css.

 

specifically, I'm trying to change the font size and background color of the title bar on the videopress video here:  http://www.clearheartcoaching.com/

Hi Peggy, 

 

What CSS did you try to apply?

 

Keep in mind that Firefox has a menu of different levels for the site's elements.  You see it just after the left-side selector cursor item.

Hi Rob, tried all this:

 

.play-button {
   font-size: 50%;
}
.videopress-title  {
    background-color: #330033 !important;
    color: #87AE11 !important;
    line-height: 1.2em !important;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
    padding-top: 0px;
}
.page-id-4118 body, .font1, .font-primary, .commentlist {
    font-family: Candara,sans-serif;
    font-size: 14px;
    line-height: 26px;
}

 

The only thing that worked was the reduction of the play-button (from 500% to 50%)

What I was really hoping to do was make the background behind the video title transparent, and change the font color to something in keeping with the site colors, like orange

Peggy,

 

I'm not sure why this is happening, or not happening as the case may be. The color should change.

 

You might notice the element.style in Firebug.

 

Try to prefix that with .videopress-title and edit it.

 

That's an educated guess, but still a guess.

in both FF and Chrome, using element.style just stripped all the css except play button. verrrrrrry interesting.

I have had the same problem. I can change something in Firebug to exactly how I like it and when copied into custom CSS there is no change. I am working on font size as well, however this happened with several things. I have pnly had this problem since upgrading to Pagelines. It always worked fine in Platform Pro.

Hi there,

 

Within the Pagelines Framework you'll sometimes need to make your css very specific in order to get it to work correctly.

 

Please see the example of 'pagelines overrides' on http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/ which might help further.


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?
      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?
