Type Is Not Resizing Responsively

Recommended Posts


I have a section of a site that is set up to have a 6 column grid using the span2 class.

When I resize the browser window, the span2's respond and resize, but the h2's within them stay the same font size, which eventually forces them to overlap.

Why isn't the font resizing with the columns/ How can I make the text resize?


The h2 styling is currently being applied via a .less file with the following code:


h2: @baseFontSize * 1.9;

@baseFontSize: 20px;



You can check it out at:



It's the numbered section at the top of the page.


Thanks in advance!

Hi Ade, since we spoke in live I've set up a replicate of your set up on my test site. I know you said you were using one of the Pagelines premium plugins - LESS Developer so I'm not sure if that add's any additional functionality and that's what you're trying to get to work or not.


In the Standard Framework, the font size isn't responsive for the paragraph text or headings in general. Resizing the browser window will resize the text container and wrap the text inside, but the text size doesn't actually scale down. Which is why the header text is then overlapping when you reduce the screensize, as they are all single words they can't wrap down onto another line. 


Two ways round this, first would be to resize the header text so its was smaller and the overlapping wouldn't occur. Or use some css with @media enquiries to scale the text down depending on the size of the browser window, like the example below.

.hentry h3  {
  font-size: x-large;
@media (max-width: 1000px) {
.hentry h3  { font-size: large; }
@media (max-width: 500px) {
.hentry h3  { font-size: medium; }

I've tested the above on my test site, if you want to see it in action visit - http://client1.surreydiscountwebsites.co.uk/image-page-2/

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.

      Is there a way to disable the responsive function of your iBoxes?
      I do not want all iBoxes underneath each other on mobile, is there a way to fix columns or group boxes?
      I use them for small links and want them to stay next to each other, see attachment
      Please let me know.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
      Looking forward to hearing from you.
