Height/Width customization for BOXES and other Sections

4 posts in this topic

I would like to request a new feature:  Add a setting for the height and width of Sections under the PageLines Meta Settings on individual pages.


For example, I've been trying to adjust the height of the "Boxes" Section on my homepage via CSS, but finding the correct selector has been difficult and time consuming.


This would be a huge help for this Section and many others.

I've still been trying to do this and figured out that I can't override the height with CSS because a style=min-height is being added into the div tag for .blocks .box-media-pad somewhere. I can work around this of course, but it's damned messy and really inconvenient. I looked at the section's PHP but I and I think WP is adding it. Any ideas? egeqene7.jpg

Hi there


Those inline styles will be generated automatically from the size of the content/images in the boxes section and the box options set in the meta. Things like setting the width/height of the images will affect these settings too.


You can overrule the min-height command using

.blocks {
    min-height: 200px ;

    • CSS Hero question
      By janpeeters+
      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' (http://www.csshero.org) I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs (http://www.pagelines.com/resources/compatible-plugins) For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan
    • DMS Pro Tools Hide Section
      By Danielle Barcena+
      Hi there,
      I can't seem to find the hide section on mobile button etc. on my sections in DMS. I am a pro/club member and I have the DMS Pro Tools installed, but after searching long and hard in DMS and on the forum, I do not know where this is. Could someone provide a screenshot for me? maybe I dont have something installed properly. Thanks.
    • Heroes Section
      By hibbsy78+
      I just spotted the standalone Heroes section as opposed to the Elements>Hero section and I much prefer this layout with the larger text directly under the heading but again on mobile (iPhone) it screws the layout similar to the contact form 7 page (http://www.johnhibbs.me/contact/).
