How to edit footer title

Recommended Posts

chrisw

Hi

 

I am not sure why but the footer titles on the front page of my site are different to the footer titles on the rest of the site:

 

www.globalwaterforum.org

 

Does anyone know why this is?

 

Thanks

Hi Chris,

 

Inspecting the site, I found that on the homepage, the titles you speak about are affected by this snippet of code:

h3 small {
    font-size: 18.2px;
}

Somehow, the HTML is equally changed. Here, for example, is the Disclaimer code for the homepage:

<h3 class="widget-title"><small>
<small>
<small>Disclaimer</small>
</small>
</small>
</h3>
<div class="textwidget">
<small>
<small>
<small>© 2013 Global Water Forum The authors are responsible for the choice and presentation of views contained in this website and for opinions expressed therein, which are not necessarily those of UNESCO and do not commit the Organization.</small>
</small>
</small>
</div>
</div>
</div>

 

Whilst the other pages show this:

<div class="pp5 footcol">
<div class="footcol-pad">
<h3 class="widget-title">Disclaimer</h3>
<div class="textwidget">© 2013 Global Water Forum The authors are responsible for the choice and presentation of views contained in this website and for opinions expressed therein, which are not necessarily those of UNESCO and do not commit the Organization.</div>
</div>
</div>

It seems this is coming from the text widget.  I'd recommend deactivating all non-PageLines plugins except Akismet (if you're using it) and any cache plugin (but clear the plugin's cache).

Hi Rob

 

Thanks for that, I see the problem in dragonfly but I can't understand why it came about. I can't deactivate all of the plugins they are essential to the working of the site. Since I have updated from Platform Pro it seems that there has been one problem after another

Chris,

 

When I have the problem of not wishing to interrupt my site's operations, what I do is find out what the lowest period of traffic is during the day.  There's lots of potential sources for this info, but the best is your site stats (if using cPanel, probably in Webalizer).  Ask your host what kind of stats are available.

 

Then, I just do my work during the least trafficked period of the day. This may sound crazy, but I found that for about an hour or so during the middle of the night, the only visits to my site were by bots, giving me sufficient time to do my work.  The bots don't care if the plugins are active, only that the site is, so I experienced no loss of SEO standing.

 

I'm not sure what Dragonfly does, but deactivating the plugins for a few minutes testing at an off-peak period would help immensely. You should also check the source of your plugins to make sure each is up to date with WordPress' current version. This helps alot, even if you can't deactivate all of them.

 

Meanwhile, I'd contact the developer of Dragonfly and ask them for their input.

 

I'm sorry to read of your troubles since upgrading.  We're here to help with any issues as best we can.  Please don't hesitate to open topics for your issues.

Thanks, sorry I should have been clearer - Dragonfly is the Opera version of firebug - I used it to identify the code which is different on the homepage to the footers on the other pages.

 

I think the Pagelines framework is much better and will allow some more interesting site designs I am just frustrated as it has made changes I didn't foresee and cannot understand.

Apologies for my misunderstanding.  I only have Opera in active use on my mobile.

 

This will sound odd, but I promise it's sincerely true.  Most of the plugin conflicts are not with PageLines itself.  More of them are conflicts with things that PageLines uses like Javascript or jQuery, or with other plugins. When these happen, they always seem to manifest in some way that makes it appear that PageLines is involved. This is why we usually guide people to turn off the plugins for testing purposes.

 

I'm totally confident in saying that even if you used a default theme, a plugin conflict can cause serious issues.

 

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. I hope you can find an opportunity to deactivate the plugins.

So I found out that it is the feature slider that is causing the footer code to change - any ideas why?

Hmm thats interesting, it doesn't look like the feature slider uses and styles its own h1 tags for the text inside the slider, this shouldn't affect the rest of the page though.

 

You wouldn't have put any custom/page specific css in for the slider that might have affected the rest of the homepage in error?

 

It seems to have resolved now, i don't see any <small> tags in the footer.


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

 

Yes thanks it turned out to be something occuring with the slider and the w3total cache plugin - I have disabled total cache and changed the slider and its all fine now :)

      In the footer of my website, I can't find where Leasing is located. I have to remove it.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      I have a problem with the typography settings. I set the H1 class with "font-weight: 300;" (Very thin weight), and "font-size: 50px;" (To have considerable evidence of my problem). Unfortunately, as you can see on the screenshots, those setting don't have any incidence on the site, Infact in the home page editor there is a trial title called "Text test", bold, and 26 px approximatly sized.
      Why the typography settings are not transposed on the site? Where I wrong?

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      http://www.myfit.cz/rozvrh/
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      http://www.myfit.cz/lekce/pilates/
      site with calendar :

      7 side with one event from the calendar :
