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.

      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.

      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.

      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?

      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
