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.

      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.

      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
