Recommended Posts

Any suggestions on the best way to get the current Brand nav section at http://radpreview.com/ADG/ to be like the attached pictures.  Not sure if i need to create an entirely new section to make that happen or if i can customized the current one enough to make this happen.

Well, this can be accomplished several ways.


1.  You can do it with both BrandNav and Nav Classic, where the BrandNav includes the unlinked words experience. retail. experience, adding a custom class to each menu item for that menu to effect color and spacing.  Nav Classic could provide the main menu, located above the branding, on the left.


2.  You can use a background image for the branding area, and BrandNav.


3. You can make one big graphic image, skipping BrandNav, and using just Branding plus Nav Classic.


Let us know which you'd like to try and we can guide you further, if needed.

Hey Rob,

  I think Sounds like the easiest way would be #3.  Just mak that section and image file then put the nav Classic above it.  For seo sake i try to stay away from image files but i think this will be fine for that.  Let me try that and see what happens.  Thanks for the help.

Here's a little SEO trick you can try, when using an image in the header:

1. After using PageLines to upload your branding image, go to Dashboard > Media Library

2. Page through the images till you find the branding image, which will have had PageLines- added as a prefix to the image name.

3. Click the Edit link, and add Alternative Text with the title and the three words you want. Save.


When search engines see the image in future, they will see more than just the image file, but will read the Alt text. This will improve your SEO standing (just slightly) over having an image only.

      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 have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      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
