Editing the Feature Text Area

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm needing to edit the text area of Features element via a child theme (changing font colours, size of the feature_slider .fcontent box plus the padding in the feature_slider .fcontent .fcontent-pad).  I'm a bit confused in that - 

 

I have isolated the areas to be changed threw Firebug, I can change them on the screen and they do what I want, but when I post the code into the editor the none of the changes are reflected!

 

I have read through the forums, I have disabled all my plugins, but can't seem to get the code to work!

 

 

#feature_slider .fcontent {

 

#feature_slider .fcontent .fcontent-pad {

 

#feature_slider .fcontent .ftitle {

 

#feature_slider .fcontent h1, #feature_slider .fcontent h2, #feature_slider .fcontent h3, #feature_slider .fcontent h4, #feature_slider .fcontent h5, #feature_slider .fcontent a {

 

#feature_slider .fcontent {

 

All help greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

You need to add the CSS inside of the curly brackets and close with }. Please review this entire documentation and follow the instructions: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css

Thanks for the response, I am aware of that, I was just copying the areas so you could confirm that they are the correct areas as the actual code is a bit long for here.

 

For example:-

 

 

#feature_slider .fcontent .fcontent-pad {

    padding-bottom: 20px;

    padding-left: 10px;

    padding-right: 10px;

    padding-top: 10px;

}

 

But when I put the code in, it has NO effect on the design

Hi Bleuy,

 

Where are you adding the CSS? In the child theme's stylesheet or in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code?

 

Are you using Firebug or Chrome's Inspection Tool?  Each of these have a sandbox for testing CSS changes.

Hi Rob

 

I was adding it to a Child Theme Style Sheet and using Firebug to identify the changes.

 

I'm not sure what is going on (this is the second time the same thing has happened) where I have identified the correct code (through modifying it in Firebug), copy & pasted it  direct into the Child Theme template via WordPress Editor (I keep an offline master file of the changes so I can revert at will) and nothing happens!  I then spend several hours doing the same thing, checking code, surfing forums and then posting a question - only for the b**dy thing to rectify itself when I revisit it several hours later.

 

Honest! The code was the same, it just for some reason decided to delay publishing elements of it!

 

Issue resolved - thanks all for your help! :startle:

I bet it was a cache... either a cache plugin or the browser.

 

Glad its resolved though!

      Hi Pagelines team and community,
       
      I am going to be attempting to do a full migration from GoDaddy to WPEngine. 
      I need to know, will I lose the front-end customisations I have made?
      Also are there any backups or things I need to do to ensure that I do not lose any important info relating to the site?
      Kind regards,
      Dan

      Hi Pagelines Team,
      I am interested in setting up a bbPress forum on my website.
      Unfortunately, I have never set up a child theme for my site and have been just using the drag and drop system to put together my site on the main theme. If I am to install the child theme, and activate it, what do I stand to lose in terms of design and current configuration settings on the backend?
      Thank you for taking this time to read this.
      Kind regards,
      Dan

      It seems my quest to simplify life, make everything more mobile, leads me to ask; what are the possibilities of Pagelines developing the ability to edit the framework in mobile devices?
      The iPad Pro comes to mind. Adobe has released some excellent mobile design tools. The ability to edit the site live, in front of clients or, on the go based on a client request or enjoying a Bahamas mama on a beach, would be an excellent option.

      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?

      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips?
