stylesheet for posts and pages

Recommended Posts


so, i want to make stylesheets for posts. i don't see any other way that makes any sense at all. i'm sick of plugins that don't work.


two questions.


first, i make the stylesheets, put them in a folder, then reference them through php, somehow. i'll figure that out, or you can help me. i just need to know that this won't break anything.


second, i want to do the same for pages. what's the deal with that? do i mod a template and somehow attach a stylesheet to it?


the tinyMCE thing is a joke, and the plugin crashes everything in its sight.


i really don't understand why styling, or formatting, or art directing, or whatever you want to call it, is such a trauma with wordpress.

a picture is worth a thousand words, wordpress, and white space is not your enemy.


man does not live by database alone.


thank you.


p.s. i have posted this to technical support because what i want to do involves more than just css.

Hi, I don't quite understand what you're trying to do, why would you want separate stylesheets for posts and pages ? Just add the CSS for your posts/pages to your custom CSS area or style.css/style.less file. Whats the purpose for the separate files ?

Hi Danny, thanks for responding.


I'm building a listings site. An example of a post that will need to be formatted is one for restaurant listings.Each listing will be in the form of a post.


In that category of listing I need the same fields (or whatever they're called) every time. Address, Phone, Type of Cuisine, Price, etc.


There will also be images, links, and paragraphs. There will be hundreds of these, so I need a format that I use over and over again.


I know the answer is out there, and I'm just too confused to get it.


I'm not talking about the database. I'm talking about the STYLE of the post.


Thank you.

Danny, I'm not asking for "Custom CSS styling".

You say this in your previous post

"I'm talking about the STYLE of the post."


So I am not sure what you're trying accomplish, can you go into greater detail please.

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

      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 -

      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.
