CSS for buttons and Google search box

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have three things not looking the way it should be.

On my website www [dot] ruzzleonline [dot] nl I have a newsletter optin box in my header.

There is a black button (Gratis Ruzzle niewsbrief >>) in Chrome and FF, but in IE it looks totally different (no rounded corners, grey).

Also when you fil in your name in IE there is a dotted border around the box, I don't like that.

Anyone knows the CSS solution, I use the LESS file so that is also possible.

 

Second CSS challenge.

I added a search box from google on the left sidebar at the bottom. As you can see it looks very strange, it looks that there is a second box behind the google box and the blue searchbutton is very tiny.

Anyone knows how I can make this look beautifull?

 

Third challenge. How can I make my submenu 'li' fit the text of the menu item so that all words are on one line?

 

Kind regards,

 

Willem

Hi Willem,

 

1. For the button add the following to your custom CSS and see if this resolves your button issues.

 

 

 

#site #mc-embedded-subscribe {
width: 220px;
color: white;
font-weight: bold;
font-family: Verdana;
border: none;
background: black;
box-shadow: none;
-webkit-border-radius: 8px;
-moz-border-radius: 8px;
border-radius: 8px;
}

If this doesn't resolve your issue, I recommend you contact the author of the code/plugin you're using.

 

2. Like above, this from the looks of it is related to the CSS for the code/plugin you're using for your Google Search. As this code is not PageLines, we are unable to provide any support, you will need to contact the author of the code.

Hi,

 

1) This is just code, not a plugin. But I discover the F12 option in IE, there developer toolbar so I could exactly discover what the problem was.

2) Still busy with that.

3) Did not get reply on this issue.

 

And I have a new question. I want to use FB/Twitter and Google snippets like on http://wpforce.com/twitter-facebook-googleplus-fan-follower-count-php/.

But I don't manage to get this in the header with hooks. I can put a signup form in the header, or an advertisment or anything else. But this I don't know.

I have to echo something also, what makes it more difficult.

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

 

Kind regards,

 

Willem

For your third issue, you need to adjust the width of the <li> submenu (make it wider using this property: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_dim_width.asp).

 

As for your new issue, were you inserting the functions into the functions.php file (not the single line code, but the code directly underneath it for each social network)? I think it would be easier to find a plugin that replicates this function.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina,

 

I really want to use the snippets instead of another plugin. 

I have Pagelines Customize plugin and there it is possible to change the functions.php. This is also what I did to have my e-mail signupform and adsense advertisment show up in header.

But with these snippets, I don't know how to get them in my header. Hope you can help me out with this.

 

Kind regards,

 

Willem

PS I will trie that property!

Hi, I did not manage to get an echo php displayed in the header but I managed to solve it:

 

add_action('pagelines_inside_top_branding', 'google_counter');
function google_counter(){

?>
<div><?php echo gplus_count(); ?></div>
<?php }
	// end function

 

I do have an other question. When I pick a font, in my example Yanone Kaffeesatz, It looks totally different in IE and FF and Google. But it sais it is * Denotes Web Safe Fonts

G Denotes Google Fonts, so should it not look the same? When I look at other sites like internetmarketinguniversiteit[dot]nl he did managed to look the Yanone look the same in all browsers...

I have just tested the font on Chrome and FF and they look the same as far as I am concerned. Therefore, can you create a new topic and provide screenshots of what you're seeing in the different browsers please.

      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?
