CSS Rounded borders on sections

Recommended Posts

mikeeg8

Hi,

 

I'd like to put some CSS borders (with rounded corners) on all the sections of my site.

 

So - for example - on the sidebar, on the main content area, etc.

 

Is there a way to do this easily please?

 

Thank you

 

Michael

Hi Michael,

 

Yes this can be done, all you need to do is use either Firebug or your browsers built-in web developer tools and inspect the section you would like to add the round corners to. Once you have found the correct class, create your custom CSS with the round corners and add your CSS to your custom CSS.

 

See our Custom CSS documentation for assistance - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/

Hello, I'm trying to accomplish the same thing but am stuck.  I've add the CSS to my custom CSS and played with it for hours trying to get the right element rounded.  I would like header corners rounded.  My site is dynacomusa.net

Hi

This is only an example, you can try

 

.section-business-branding .branding_wrap  {
     box-shadow: 0px 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
    padding: 5px;
}

If you have targeted the correct class and the round corners are not displaying, then you most likely haven't added the correct CSS.

Use this site to generate the correct code - http://border-radius.com/

Thanks Danny!  I'm now trying to do the entire page using the following code but it only rounds the bottom.  I've also tried your site (thank you) but am not sure which class to target.  Can you help?

 

 

div
{
border:2px none;
border-radius:25px;
-moz-border-radius:25px;

Hi there,

 

For each section you want to apply the rounded corners too you'll have to find a class/id for each. For example #header would be one element which you could select at the top of the page, when you look in firebug and you're inspecting each element roll over the html field in the left across the name of each div. When you do this you'll see in the live site window blue borders appearing around the relevant element you're looking at in the code. That way you can stop when the border is around the right element, then look into the css which appears in the left hand window at the bottom, make the required changes and then copy/paste back into Pagelines.

 

This link will show you more on the border radius property - http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_border-radius.asp

 

if you want the css to apply to all four corners using the same radius amount, simply write in one figure, like the below

 

 

border-radius:25px;
 

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 James, it tried this but it does not seem to work.  What would my target be?  site-canvas?

Hi Cloudstem

 

Take a look at this screenshot - http://screencast.com/t/rR5IcyVDF4

 

Top screen show the rounded corners, then in the blue line on the bottom left is the area I'm looking into through the inspector. When i click on that div 'content' it loads the css on the right hand window. The arrow in the right hand window points to the classes those rounded corners are coming from. So in that example you can see .canvas and .page-canvas are the selectors you can use.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      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?
      Thanks

      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 -

      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.
